A Message From Mr. Ellis:

Greetings All Star Families,

Our virtual school year is up and running, and our teachers are immersed in technology as they are working with your children!  The teachers have been so excited to see all of the students faces to begin the year.  I was even able to pop in and see some of our 5th and 6th grade students online as well.  It was so nice to see them again!

I would like to thank everyone for their patience as we work through all of the technological "kinks" during these first few days of instruction.  I have been working with several families as issues have arisen.  If you are having trouble with your device, please reach out to your child's teacher and/or the Beacon Tree Elementary office for assistance.  We can be reached at (586)797-7300  

Please remember that our educational hours have changed.  Our virtual day begins at 9:10am and concludes at 4:00pm.  If you are a Beacon Tree Elementary with a child attending the Virtual Academy, you schedule begins at 8:20am and concludes at 3:10pm.

I would like to again thank all of our All Star families for your patience and flexibility!  We could not have had a successful virtual opening without you!

All The Best,

Mr. Ellis
Proud Principal
Beacon Tree Elementary
