Dear Beaubien Bulldog Families,

A VERY BIG welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. The staff and I are looking forward to the year and want it to be exceptional for you and your child. A special welcome to our new families. Hopefully you were able to make it to our Back to School Picnic to meet our staff as well as connect with other families. Thank you to our mighty PTO for making this such a special event. If you haven’t yet already, PLEASE join the PTO. We would not be the school we are if it weren’t for the events they organize and their financial contribution to our school. Family membership is only $15. Send cash or a check made out to Beaubien PTO to school with your child. Homeroom teachers will make sure it gets to the PTO. If you weren’t able to make it to the picnic, be sure to mark your calendar for our Open House on Friday, September 14th from 6:30-8:00 pm. All are welcome!

We are continuing this year to work on our school attendance and student tardy arrivals. Students in kindergarten through 8th grade are expected to be in their classrooms at 7:45 am and the school day ends at 2:45 pm. We need your help to have all of our students at school on time. We will continue to have our Bulldog attendance awards weekly and recognize the class at each grade level
with the best attendance. The area around Beaubien can get extremely congested at drop off and pick up times. We have been informed that there will be construction in the area which is going to make it even more challenging this year. We urge you to walk to school and, if needed, park two blocks away and walk your child to the correct door. We need everyone’s help to keep our children safe. PLEASE be patient and follow all posted parking signs.

If you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for our school website at, our tweets @jbbelementary on Twitter and “like” us on our PTO Facebook page. You will receive weekly updates to the email you provide on our website when you sign up.

Warm regards,
Michelle H. Ludford
