Words of Wisdom from Mrs. Ward

AIMS Testing = STAMINA

Please encourage your child to do their best by getting plenty of rest before the test, eating a good breakfast, and taking the time to answer questions using the strategies the staff have taught them.  This year the governor and legislators plan to include additional funding for improved test scores.  YOUR child can help this be a success here at Beaver Creek School.

I know our students can shine if we all work together to encourage them to do their very best on the reviews and the tests.

AIMS Testing-Think SMART and Think STAMINA.

DRESS CODE:  After school was out last May, the faculty and staff gathered to discuss concerns and address those concerns with a plan of action.

The concerns were based on increased student disruption on the school grounds, safety issues, and lack of academic effort on the part of the students.  The student-parent handbook was reviewed page by page and many discussions took place as to helping student be academically successful while not disrupting other and being safe.  From that discussion an updated discipline matrix was written, a Dean of Students position was created, and an updated dress code was established (page 18 of student handbook/agenda).

Several of our students grew over the winter and their short are not too short.  Please help us by watching they are wearing as they leave for school.

Mrs. Naef's STEM Notes

The year is almost over and it has gone by so quickly.  It seems like only yesterday we were starting this school year.  Beaver Creek student have had a variety of opportunities with connections to STEM this year.  Next year, I hope to offer even more.

The seventh and eighth grade students recently attended a session of juvenile court.  They had the opportunity to observe first-hand how our juvenile justice system works.  This has been a great chance for our middle school students to learn from real-world experience while reinforcing the state standards for social studies.  The groups were also able to investigate judicial field career options to consider for the future.

A number of STEM career options will also be presented a the community health and safety fair on April 12 at Beaver Creek School.  Join our community and see what it has to offer.

In the fourth grade classes, a wildlife program is being presented to the students.

The fifth grade class will be having a quest speaker and field trip later in the month as they investigate properties of water.

Seventh and eighth grade classes will have the opportunity to visit NAU on April 23 to tour the campus and explore career opportunities in various health professions.

As the end of the year approaches, the fourth and fifth grade classes will be attending the bi-annual science camping field trip on Mingus Mountain.  The trip is scheduled for May 12 and 13.  We are in need of parent volunteers to help make the overnight camping trip a success.  If you are interested in helping with this trip please contact Mrs. Naef or one of the 4th and 5th grade homeroom teachers at 567-4631.
