Welcome to Beecher Elementary School!!

The 2018-2019 School Year is going to be great at BES.  This will be my third year, and I couldn’t be happier to return with all of the same teachers as last year.  This year our school will be working hard to live to our theme “Be Kind”. On the first day of school, all students received their very own “Be Kind” shirt.  We will be encouraging our students to “Be Kind” to everyone both inside of our building and outside throughout the year. Look forward to many different ways for our students and their families to show their kindness!  

We don’t have any new classroom teachers this year, but we do have some new faces here at BES.  Mrs. Beth O’Neil will be joining our team as an instructional aide. Many of you will recognize her from last year because she substituted in the front office for Mrs. Hermanson. Mrs. Lyndsey Berger is a Beecher resident, and she will be our library aide. She will also spend some of her time as an instructional aide assisting teachers and students in the classroom.  We will also have two new lunchroom supervisors, Mrs. Carrie Seniw and Mr. Bruce Mead. You may also recognize them because they are bus drivers for our district.

I look forward to working together with both our staff, students, and parents to make the 2018-2019 school year the best one yet!  If you have any questions, please feel free to call, email, or visit anytime.



Nicole Black, Principal


Kindness is free, sprinkle that stuff everywhere!!

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!
