Dear Parents and Students,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year! To the new students and families, I welcome you into the Beacon Hill family.
At Beacon Hill we embrace the development of the child’s mind, body and soul. With this in mind, it is with great pleasure to let you know that we are creating an outdoor education classroom. Studies have proven that working outdoors; decreases stress levels, increases motivation and also increases overall behavior in students.
The partnership between school and home is so important. It is imperative that together we instill a passion for learning through nurturing and challenging the students academically, socially and emotionally. It is also necessary for us to encourage creativity and individuality, and to celebrate each student’s contributions.
I look forward to working on new initiatives and continuing the long-standing traditions that are so much a part of Beacon Hill. It was interesting to see how the classes incorporated Deep Learning through our Aquatic Adventure school theme last year. This year we have chosen The Jungle as our Deep learning theme and are very excited to have Jungle Sport visit the school at the end of September.
Beacon Hill parents are very involved within the school. I encourage you to volunteer so that we can continue offering all the extras that benefit the school and the students.
I would invite you to visit the school website to see important dates on our monthly calendars, pictures and to keep track of all the events that take place over the year. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. Together we will create a safe and caring school where mutual respect is paramount.
On behalf of the Beacon Hill team, I wish you a wonderful school year!
