Spooky Story Night

"Our first-annual "Spooky Story Night" was a wonderful event for our K, 1 and 2 families. Children got to go to a very spookily decorated kindergarten wing to hear stories read by some very interesting characters in costume.  Parents stayed in the gym to talk with teachers about what students are learning this year. We had information and displays on the Math In Focus program, Framing Your Thoughts and Empowering Writers, Fundations phonics program, and information about our work here at Beeman to motivate our students with "Growth Mindset". Our own Mr. MacCorkle read his newly published book "
Big Foot Knows the Way Home". He wrote and illustrated this book, and it is available on Thank you to Ginny Cosgrove and Caitlin Driscoll  our Title 1 teachers for organizing this event, and also thank you to the staff who participated and helped make it such a wonderful success: Jen Ripley, Brian MacCorkle, Jean Phillips, Julie McGovern, Janet Donovan, Megan Ganley, Karis Sawyer, Danielle Travers, Amy Cole, Claire Wholley, Tanya Brousseau, Ann Pieterse, Shannon Borowski and Melanie Stansfield. It went so well that next year we hope to be able to accommodate all those adorable little siblings who wanted so much to be here too!"
