Dear Beach Family,

Greetings!  It has been a fun and exciting week for students; they love snow!  Thank you for making sure your child comes to school properly dressed for the cold.  Our “Beach Green Team” is having their first Community Garage Sale this coming Saturday, November 22 from 9:00 – 12:00.  Please consider donating boots and coats your child has outgrown and also consider shopping this event to find coats and boots that will fit your child for a fair price.

We are participating in a district-wide food drive to assist our community to help families in need.  Your family is invited to send in nonperishable food items (canned food/boxed pastas, etc.) this week.  The collection boxes are in the breezeway. 

Next week Wednesday there will be a regular start time of 8:20 a.m. for students because it is a half-day of school.  Students dismiss at 11:53 a.m.  Thanksgiving break continues until Monday, December 1.  Our kindergarten families are invited to a Thanksgiving Day Breakfast and Open House on Wednesday, November 26 from 10:00 until dismissal time.

December 6 is our annual Breakfast with Santa from 9:00 – 11:00.  We hope you can make it!  This is an open house format, allowing families to stop in any time during 9:00 – 10:30 and planning about 30 minutes for a light breakfast, craft and picture with Santa!

Also remember to mark your calendar for December 11 if you are a family that has a kindergartener, first or second grade student.  Our annual Christmas program will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. with our kindergarteners. 

Our Christmas vacation will be from Monday, December 22 – January 2, 2015.  School resumes on January 5th.

Have a great weekend and hopefully the icy weather misses us!

Yours truly,

Julie VanBergen
