Dear Beaubien Families,
 
It saddens me to think that we haven’t been together in over 2 months. This truly has been a school year to remember. There have been many highs and many lows. No matter how you are feeling, it is important to recognize that we are all in the same situation. Every student and family is
going through similar things. We do not know exactly what the beginning of next school year will be like yet, but what I do know is we are here for you and we will always be here to support all of our children no matter what! #We are all in this together.
 
What I am most proud of is the way our community has pulled together to make it work for our children. Thank you to our families who are essential workers and everyone who became teachers for our children while working from home. Thank you to our teachers and staff who made a shift in
teaching in such a short time and a big thank you to our students for being resilient and doing the very best they can. I want to congratulate our 8th grade students on their graduation and wish them the very best as they move on to high schools all over the city. We are SO proud of you!
Although graduation day is going to look different, we know you have the tools and resiliency to move forward, be stronger and change the world! You will always be a Beaubien Bulldog and we look forward to hearing about all of your amazing accomplishments.
 
A BIG shout out to our mighty Spring Fling committee. THANK YOU to Mrs. Slaiwa and Mrs. Lippa for leading the charge. Thank you to everyone else who either had something to do with the planning or decided to spend some money. 🙂 We raised just over $14,000 for our students. That money goes directly back to our students to fund field trips, classroom experiences, and more.
 
This year more than ever we need to keep up with academics over the summer. Even though school is officially over on June 18th, research has shown that students suffer from the “summer slide” if they don’t read, write and practice math skills during the summer break. Summer work is not mandatory, however, it is crucial for a student’s continued academic growth. Please be sure to
have your children read for at least 30 minutes every day and continue to be engaged in educational activities to the best of your ability.
 
Although we don’t know what the 20/21 school year will bring us, we are starting to plan. Part of the planning includes class placement for each student. Each grade level team plays an integral role in placing students in the best educational setting for each child. Homerooms will be posted and available on the parent portal in August and we are planning to host our Welcome Back School Picnic on Thursday, September 3rd if allowed. Supply lists will be the same across grade levels and will be posted on our website ASAP.
 
Please make sure to check our website, PTO FB page and Twitter for important information and reminders. A very BIG thank you to all of the parents and volunteers who have helped us with all of our events this year, as well as our staff who have been critical in making them educational, fun
and memorable for our students.
 
Have a safe and fun filled summer! We Are……..Beaubien Bulldogs!!
 
Warm regards,
