New Post:   
Kindergarten Open House was a SUCCESS! On March 15th, we welcomed in a large crowd of "Future All Stars" to Beacon Tree Elementary!  It was extremely nice to speak with several families about their children and their aspirations for them.  Our staff enjoyed their time at this event and their interactions with all of our participating families. One of the items that we had available was a "Graduating Class of 2030 t-shirt.  We had many families purchase one last night, but if you were unable to purchase one, or were not available to be at the Open House, please click this link to order yours!  Thank you to all of our "Future All Star Families" for coming out last night and taking an active role in your child's education!
March Is Reading Month Is Here!
If you have a chance to be in the building this month, you will see that our hallway outside of the office and in front of the Media Center have been transformed into an outdoor campsite with trees, benches, and other fun displays!  I would like to thank Mrs. Warren, Mrs. Sapienza, Mrs. Spasenovski, Mrs. Toby, Mrs. Uitos, Mrs. Mesic and Mrs. Dubay for all of their time and energy in creating this wonderful atmosphere!  Everything looks great, and it certainly fits our reading theme of "Camp Out and Read at the Tree"!

6th Grade Parents: This month you will notice on our calendar that both Shelby and Malow Jr. High counselors will be visiting Beacon Tree to speak with the students and begin the scheduling process.  All of the dates and times (updated) have been placed on our calendar below.  Keep an eye out for important dates as there are multiple ones regarding the transition to Junior High School.

Keep an eye on the section "Upcoming Events" for all of the activities that are going on around Beacon Tree Elementary.

All The Best,
Mr. Ellis
