All Star Parents:

Our 2016-2017 school year has ended, and we all are parting ways until we return in September.  I hope that everyone has a wonderful summer and that it is filled with many memory making opportunities for you and your families!  All of our All Stars worked hard this year, and I look forward to the upcoming school year and what it holds for each of your children.

If you are interested, our Beacon Tree Elementary Spirit Wear Store will be available year round now.  If you are interested in some spirit wear, please utilize the link below to access the site!  There are many different styles to choose from, and I have already heard many positive comments about the apparel as well!

If you are looking to get school supplies prior to the upcoming school year, I have posted the link for you.  Please click HERE to access the lists.  The lists are still grade level specific, and please remember that you are not required to purchase these items.  These are only recommendations by staff for the year, not a requirement.
Before I sign off for the summer, I would again like to thank each of you for allowing our Beacon Tree Elementary staff to educate your children.  There truly is no greater task on Earth as important as this!

Enjoy your summer, and we will see you on September 5th!

All The Best,
Mr. Ellis
