The Beebe PTO has launched their new website. You can find their site through the PTO page on the school site or by clicking the above link.
This month we sent a team to attend a 2-day training for PBIS Academy facilitated by the May Clinic.During this training the team was able to evaluate the initial PBIS lessons developed over the summer and make adjustments to improve their effectiveness. The team broadened the Matrix to include expectations in the auditorium and during presentations. Lessons were designed to teach these expectations to students and children will be given the opportunity to practice these skills in the space.
We held our first round of PBIS assemblies this month. These events are a great opportunity for students to come together as a community and celebrate their accomplishments. The students were amazing and had a really good time cheering for each other. Our Mascot, the Beebe Bulldog made an appearance at each of the assemblies and many students won some cool prizes.
Our PBIS bulletin board was installed this month to help us track our progress school-wide. Every 200 Beebe bucks a class earns allow the students to choose a reward from the PBIS incentive menu and buys a bone for our bulldog's dish. As you can see, this is one well fed bulldog!
Our school's very own bulldog made an appearance at the PBIS assemblies to dance and cheer for our students.
The classroom whose students earn the most Beebe Bucks in their grade become the proud keepers of a B.A.R.K. bulldog bone.
B.A.R.K. stands for Be: Accepting, Responsible, & Kind
Harvard Crimson Reading Program
This year the Beebe School participated in the inaugural ‘Harvard Crimson Reading Program.
The goal of the program was to inspire students to read and have fun while doing so. In addition to promoting a love of reading, Harvard Student-Athletes came to visit students at the Beebe. These athletes spoke to our students about the importance of actively reading, and read to younger students from some of their own favorite childhood books.
Beebe students that completed their reading program were given a FREE ticket and will be recognized at the Harvard vs. Dartmouth football game on Saturday, November 2nd at 1:00 pm. As part of the ultimate prize, ALL schools and students participating in the Reading Program will be invited onto the field prior to the game for a parade and photo opportunities.
