Welcome to Beecher Elementary School!!

I am excited to serve as the principal of Beecher Elementary School, a school  with such a long and accomplished past. As the leader of this building it is my job to lead a community of learners among staff, students, and families.  It is my goal to support everyone involved in giving each child in Beecher the quality start to their education that happens with the strong foundation gained at BES.

We do have some new faces around the building this year.  First, we have Miss Goedke who will be filling in for Mrs. Cox while she is at home with the newest addition to her family.  Mrs. Gliva is teaching 2nd grade, and Miss Doyle is teaching 5th grade.  They are both filling vacant positions from our two teachers who retired last year.  Lastly, we have Miss Vierk who is our new EC Teacher this year.

I look forward to working together, learning and growing with all students and staff at Beecher Elementary School, and forming strong home school bonds that make BES an amazing place for students to learn. If you have questions, please feel free to call, email, or visit us anytime.


Nicole Black, Principal

Morning Arrival
Parents please do not drop your children off at school before 7:50. Please drive slowly down the driveway to the main entrance (Door #1) and make one stop in the designated "drop off" area. Please make only one stop and have students exit on the right side of the vehicle. All students are to enter the building through door #1 (the main entrance). For safety reasons, no students are to be dropped off or picked up in the west drive.

If you have something to drop off in the office, please park in one of the visitor spots on the left side of the driveway. Please be certain to park in a visitors' parking spot as all of the other parking spots are designated for faculty/staff parking.

Thank you for your help!

Student Absence/Illness Information
Students should be in school unless for illness or family emergencies. To report an absence: please call 946-2202 Ext. 2, the BES attendance number. (Please do not send an email message to the teacher, or a note with a sibling.) If we do not receive a call from a parent, we are required, for your child's safety,  to try to contact you by phone.

For the protection of the entire student body, a student with a fever of 100 degrees or more
will be required to go home. Students are not to return to school until they have been fever free (without fever reducing medication) for 24 hours. A doctor's note is required to return to school for any student who has been absent for more than three days, has any type of skin rash, or has been absent due to Conjunctivitis (Pink eye) or Chicken Pox.
