Welcome to Beecher Elementary School!!

The 2019-2020 School Year is going to be fantastic! This will be my fourth year as part of the BES family, and I couldn’t be happier to return.
This year our school will be continuing to focus on kindness, with our school theme of “KINDNESS MATTERS”. During the first week of school, all students received their very own “Kindness Matters” shirt. We will be spending the year reminding our students that Kindness Matters both inside and outside of our building. Look forward to many different ways for our students and their families to show that Kindness Matters throughout the year!
We have many new students and team members this year. Mrs. Jami Parise will be joining our team as a Kindergarten teacher, Mr. Jesse Nagel as a 4th grade teacher, and Mrs. Elise Daly as the Cross Category teacher. Mrs. Megan Davis and Mrs. Gina Doran will be instructional aides at BES. We will also have a new lunchroom supervisor, Mrs. Kelly Falaney. You may also recognize her because she is a bus drivers for our district.
I look forward to working together with both our staff, students, and parents to make the 2019-2020 school year the best one yet! If you have any questions, please feel free to call, email, or visit anytime.
