Beachwood Principal Paula Gayson

Hello Beachwood Families!

It is hard to believe April is almost here and we are getting close to the end of the year.  Students will gearing up for end of the year STAR assessments and the SBA (Smarter Balance Assessment) for our 3rd – 5th graders is right around the corner.

April is the “Month of the Military Child”.  We “Purple Up” on Friday’s in April in honor of military children.  We encourage everyone to wear purple on Friday’s.  Purple is the color that represents all branches of the military.  As printed in the April issue of Military Officer magazine:

“If anyone deserves recognition and appreciation for their selfless service, it is military children.  Born in military hospitals around the globe, they will learn far too young goodbyes will be frequent and difficult.  At some point in their toddler years, they inevitably will hug a camouflaged leg of someone other than their uniformed parent by mistake.  They will move repeatedly, usually at the precise point in time when they feel most settled”.

Thank you to all of our military families for the sacrifices you have made in service to our country.

As always, please contact us when questions or concerns come up. Beachwood prides itself on providing strong partnerships between our teachers, school administration and our students and their families. We have a caring faculty that is dedicated to the success of your children.
