Welcome to Principal’s Corner. We are looking forward to our assemblies this week. We will be learning about Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind and Courage. Thank you to all our parents who came for parent/teacher conferences. It was so great to see you all. Remember that you don’t have to wait until parent/teacher conferences to discuss your child’s progress. You can contact teachers at any time and they will be happy to call you or meet with you during school hours. Just reach out!
Save the dates for our upcoming Christmas Concerts! (See schedule below) We look forward to performing for you all.

Pictures of the Week
Our Junior High students in Career & Technology Foundations (CTF) created bobbleheads of some of our staff. These were on display during Parent/Teacher Conferences. We hope you had fun guessing who’s who. We will share the answers next week.

Thank you to Stephanie Bailey and our School Council for advocating on behalf of our school to bring this program to our school. Many thanks to the City of Beaumont for supporting this.
The City of Beaumont has provided each school with two family passes for the BSRC. Families can sign out the pass for one week and use the BSRC for free. If the pass is not returned on the due date or if it is lost or damaged, a $20 fee will be added to your PowerSchool account. The pass will be signed out to your child through our library Destiny program. Once you fill out this form (click on image above), the librarian will sign the pass out and email you when the pass is coming home with your child. The goal is to have as many families as possible use the pass so we will not reissue a pass to a family that has already signed it out. Please return the family pass to the school office.
