Dear Beal Families,
Happy Sunday as we close out the month of March! This stretch between February Vacation and April Vacation is an exciting one with a string consecutive 5 day weeks that allows students time and routines to really show their spring growth. We will continue to work our way outdoors as the weather gets nicer, so please get those spring layers ready for your children to be comfortable in and out of the building.
Chris Girardi and Shelley Hoey

Current Openings in the Extended Day Program
The Extended School Care program has immediate openings in the before and after school programs for students attending Beal, Coolidge, Floral, Paton, Spring and Sherwood.
Extended day offers a structured enrichment program led by experienced, professional staff. Students can choose from a variety of planned activities each day including art, gym games, dramatic play, outdoor play, and many special projects and clubs. Students in grades 1-6 also have a period of quiet homework time. A snack and drink are provided each day. The program is located in each of the school cafeterias and students go directly to the program at school dismissal. There is no transportation for the Extended Day. Parents must pick up their child no later than 6:00PM. The before school programs at the elementary schools open at 7:00AM and parents may drop off anytime between 7:00-8:15. Our staff will ensure students get to class at the start of the school day.
Students enrolled during the current school year are guaranteed a spot in next year’s program.
Additional information, including tuition rates, can be found on our website.
