New Post: Happy New Year All Star Families!  January has arrived, and so has the frigid weather!  Keep an eye on the section "Upcoming Events" for all of the activities that are going on around Beacon Tree Elementary.

As many of you already know, order forms have been sent home for our yearbooks.  We are going to be taking orders up until February 28th!  Please make sure that you get your order in as soon as possible.  We have a new company that we are working with and I am excited to see the final product.  This year we have a book that will have 12 more pages (totaling 44) and cost a dollar less ($10.00)!  We are excited about the new company, and the fact that we are able to have students help create the yearbook with us!  I can't wait to see the final product that they come up with!

Please do not forget to sign up for PowerSchool!  As mentioned earlier, the UCS is going to utilize this system for report cards. Please contact our office about gaining access to your PowerSchool account so that you will be able to receive the digital report cards. Our next marking period ends in mid January, and report cards will be made available digitally on January 26th.  We want to make sure that all of our families are prepared for this transition.  If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call and we can assist you.

All The Best,
Mr. Ellis
