A Message From Mr. Ellis:

All Star Families,

We have once again come to the end of another school year.  This one will definitely go down as being a very memorable one to say the least.

I want to thank all of you for your flexibility and support throughout the school year.  What began as any "typical" year, ended up being a "not so typical" school year when it was all said and done.  The staff and I could not have done it without each of you!

As we close our doors and turn out the lights (and turn off the power buttons too), we look forward to the coming of the 2020-2021 school year.  Although there are still a plethora of questions about next year, we can all count on one thing...

The All Star Staff and I will be ready for you and your children!

The office staff and I will be returning to Beacon Tree Elementary on August 4th.  We will be available for registrations, or just to answer questions that you may have.  

From an office standpoint, we say goodbye to Mrs. Johnson who retired at year's end to spend time with her family.  We will definitely miss her and all that she brought to our office.  To take her place, we are welcoming Mrs. Danko back to our All Star team!  Mrs. Danko is returning to us from the Junior High level where she was the Administrative Assistant to the Principal at Shelby Jr. High.  We look forward to having her back in our office to help take care of you and your children!  Please make sure to give her an All Star welcome when you see her!

I hope that each of you has a restful summer and that you are able to spend some quality time with family and friends! 

Take Care Everyone!

All The Best,

Mr. Ellis

Proud Principal
Beacon Tree Elementary
