Welcome to Beecher Elementary School!!

I am excited to start my second year 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, Mrs. Cox has returned to our Kindergarten team, after she was at home with the newest addition to her family.  We also have a some new instructional aides.  We have Mrs. Purdy and Mrs. Carr working in different classroom providing support to many teachers and students throughout the building.  Ms. Graham will be our new library aide, and she will also be providing support to teachers and students during their Flex Time.

I look forward to continuing to work 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!
