A Message From Principal Clarke


Dear Beech Tree Families,

I hope everyone had an enjoyable week. I want to extend my gratitude to all the families who were able to attend the Curriculum Night. It was an evening filled with valuable information and we appreciate your active participation. Families had the opportunity to visit classrooms and engage in activities that support learning. It was wonderful observing the engagement between students, families and our staff.

For those who could not attend, we understand and want to assure you that information shared during Curriculum Night will be made available. Please reach out to your child's teacher or the school office for any follow-up questions.

I am grateful to have such engaged and supportive families at Beech Tree Elementary School. Your involvement is key to the success of our students. Thank you once again for your participation.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership.

With appreciation,

Principal Clarke
