Beachwood Principal Paula Gayson

Hello Beachwood Families!

Have a safe, restful and playful summer.  We want you to have lots of fun adventures, but it is also critical that students read and practice math during the summer months to avoid the “summer slide” in their academics.  Please have students read every day during their break.

We will be having a “Kindergarten Round Up” on August 24th.  Students with last names beginning with A-M will come from 9am – 10am and students with last names N-Z will come from 11am-12pm.  Kindergarten parents and students will see their classroom, meet their teachers, learn a bit about the kindergarten program at Beachwood and tour the school.  Spread the word to any new neighbors that join our community.

Our “Meet and Greet” is August 30th from 3-5pm.  This is when students in grades 1-5 will learn who their teacher is and see their classrooms.  Please bring your school supplies with you so you don’t need to worry about carrying them on the first day.

The first day of the 2022-23 school year is August 31st for students in grades 1-5.  Kindergarten will have WA Kids Conferences and then start school on September 6th.

Enjoy the summer and we will see you back on August 30th for the Meet and Greet, from 3-5pm.
