Beech Hill Core Values

Because children come first,

Excellence, leadership and empowerment are standard.

All of us are nurtured, guided and supported to become our best.

Creativity, collaboration, passion and purpose drive our direction.

Ownership, scholarship and citizenship chart our course.

Nothing is too difficult, costly or taxing to keep us from reaching our destination.

Sailing with the winds of a growth mindset, Beacons change the world.

Beginning September 21, we will move to the Hybrid Model!

Meet the Parents, Meet the Teachers!

You are cordially invited to our "Linked at First Site" nights. Teachers are working to make connections with parents as we begin this adventurous partnership and school year. These sessions will be similar to webinars in format, with part of the presentation being live and interactive.

We are hosting the events over several nights, so parents with many Beacons have a greater chance of catching a live show. If you have a conflict on the scheduled night, don't worry. The presentations will be recorded for your review at a later time. Each session will begin at 6:15 with a welcome from PTA. Teachers will then present details about classes and reserve a little time at the end of the presentation for questions, answers, and ideas.

Please save these dates:

· September 15 --Pre-school, Kindergarten and First Grade

· September 16 --Second and Third Grades

· September 17 --Fourth and Fifth Grades
