Fifth Grade Visits O'Maley School

Our fifth grade took a trip to O’Maley Middle School on Wednesday, January 18. The visit was the first chance for the students to explore the school. They chatted with several older students about their SAILS program. The
SAILS program promotes building a respectful community through Service, Acceptance, Integrity, Leadership and Success. The students participated in some team building activities. They had an opportunity to use one of the lower-level STEM Labs. The students built small wooden paddleboats. After some discussion about the science behind the ships, they raced them against each other. All in all it was a fun, successful and informative first visit

Beeman recently held their Concert of Peace and Friendship. The students had practiced with Ms. Goldberg for weeks preparing for the event. Each grade had a chance to step on stage and perform. A performance was given for families of grades K - 2 and another performance for the families of grades 3 - 5. A third performance was given for just the students. All students in grades K - 5 gathered together and performed their songs for each other. Third grade even had a chance to show off their recorder skills.

Don't forget about those make-your-own famous gingerbread houses. Children even had the opportunity to visit and take a picture with the Santa!

Got Stuff? Bring it in for the

Beeman Student Holiday Store!

Cleaning out your closets for Fall cleaning?

We need your gently used items appropriate for gifts.


Continuing on with that wonderful Beeman tradition of having a store for our students to buy presents for their families, we will host the Beeman Holiday Store this December. We are collecting those items you have in your home that would be suitable for re-gifting and are just-like-new such as:

         •   unwanted gifts                •   mugs             •  decorative items

         •   gently used jewelry         •   ceramics        •   holiday items

                  *   We especially need items for men: ties, scarves, etc.

Send in any item you have no need for, but you know would be a perfect gift for that special someone in a student’s life. There is a collection box in the front lobby.  We could also use your extra holiday wrapping paper, gift tags tissue and tape.


Upcoming events next month:


•     Election Day Bake Sale: We could still use items for the bake sale tomorrow. If you can donate, please drop items off at the Beeman School front lobby any time during the day while the polls are open (before 5:30PM)


•     Tuesday, November 15th, Picture Re-take Day: send in the envelope with the previous pictures that you do not want and your child can have their picture re-taken.

              -  trees and wreaths for sale

•     Holiday Store for students to choose gifts for their families: Monday

       and Tuesday, December 12th and 13th. This is also a great volunteer

       opportunity on either or both of those days. Helping students choose

       gifts and wrapping them is so wonderfully cute and fun.
