Dear All Star Parents/Guardians:

We are so happy to have our All Stars back in the building!!  They are breathing life back into Beacon Tree everyday!  I hope that they are transitioning back to the classroom environment well.  Your children have been doing a great job of following protocols and staying safe.  We could not be more proud!

Coming up this month are some pretty important dates.  Each is listed on the calendar below, but I figure I will highlight them here as well.

February 11th:  Mid Year Conferences - Teachers will be holding conferences with select families.  Please keep an eye out for the conference forms.  Conferences will again be virtual in nature, but more information is coming.

February 12th: Picture Day - Our BTV is helping to coordinate a yearbook for our students this year.   We are going to have Kaiser Studios in to take student photos this day.  We will follow safety protocols as we get the photos taken.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.  We will also be welcoming our Virtual All Stars to get their photos taken as well.  They will be able to come to Beacon Tree Elementary between 3:10pm and 4:45pm to have photos taken.  If anyone is not comfortable in getting their photo taken, no worries!!  You can submit photos utilizing this LINK .  Once there, enter our school ID 92328 to upload your photos!  Folders have been created to keep everything organized by teacher and special categories! 

I cannot believe that January is almost over!  I can say this, having the students back is definitely making the time go by faster!!  Thank you again for your partnership in making the transition back to Beacon Tree Elementary a smooth one!

I hope that everyone has a great February!

All The Best,

Mr. Ellis

Proud Principal
