A Message from Our Superintendent & Principal

May 3, 2022

Dear Beaver Creek Community,

I am a treasure hunter

As we finish out the last month of school, we celebrate the amazing growth of our students academically and socially. This month has many celebrations from sports awards, to concerts, to promotions and graduations. May also brings some sadness as we say goodbye to our students moving up to high school. Where does the time go?

Staff members here have taken on the role of treasure hunters and found many treasures in our students throughout the year. Now, we are planning exciting summer opportunities with Yavapai College for Kids, the Beaver Creek Community Library Summer Reading Program, and Rock the Creek Camp in July.

In the summer, we are excited that, in the 600 and 800 buildings, classrooms are getting updated carpeting. The maintenance crew continues to work towards a wonderful Field of Dreams ballfield. Ordering of materials and supplies will take place, and rooms will all be deep cleaned.

And just like that, July 28 arrives for our Back to School BBQ. We will be inviting community groups to share their information with families at 6:00 p.m. in the multi-purpose room. We will serve dinner at 6:30 p.m. We will introduce the teachers, and families will go to rooms to meet the teachers.

Creekers will be back in school at 7:45 a.m. on August 1!

Have a great summer!

    Letter to Families Regarding the Texas Tragedy

    May 27, 2022

    Dear Beaver Creek Families and Community,

    Like you, we are shocked and deeply saddened by the news of the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Texas on Tuesday. We share in the heartbreak we are all feeling for the families who have lost a loved one due to this senseless act of violence.

    School should and must be a place where students feel completely safe and secure. Beaver Creek School staff is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment. Beaver Creek School has an emergency plan in place, and we review that plan every summer. Trainings are provided to the staff each year, and drills are practiced throughout the school year. With the news of the Robb Elementary School tragedy, Beaver Creek School administration is reviewing our emergency plan and training procedures for the upcoming school year.

    We know that our students and staff will process this news in different ways. Ms. Cathy and Mrs. Wheeler are available to assist students who may need some extra support this summer. We strongly encourage any family to stop by the office, call, or reach out on Class Dojo for additional support. Please join us in keeping the students, staff, and families of the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District in our thoughts at this time.
