The fall season is now sometimes referred to as the family season. We have many special days that we spend with family and friends. This is certainly true here at the Beebe School.
Our P.T.O. parents as usual worked very hard on October 13th organizing a Halloween party for our K-4 students out on our school plaza. Students enjoyed dancing, face painting games and wearing their costumes. October 19th, students in grades 5, 6 & 7 and 8 were able to wear their Halloween costumes and show off their roller skating skills at Roller World in Saugus. Thank you to our parents, staff and the Malden High School Key Club for all their hard work and support. A great time was had by all.
The P.T.O also held a very successful Scholastic Book Fair. Students selected and purchased books with the help of our P.T.O officers and parents. Reading is very important and popular with our grade 1 students who enjoy reading with their “Grade 8 Reading Buddies.”
On Wed., Oct 18th, the 6th grade Beebe students were host to Meg Tabacsko, a presenter from the MWRA. They took part in “Down the Drain” – an interactive presentation that answers the questions: What is wastewater?…Where does it come from?…Where does it go? The use of 30“ X 40” presentation boards that depict each stage of the wastewater treatment process and the props that are velcroed to the boards to show what gets stopped along the way, engaged the students and got them thinking about their own households. Students see actual samples of wastewater as it progresses through the system. The presentation is a precursor to the Malden DPW storm drain truck demonstration that the students will see during the Beebe’s Earth Day celebration. All of the activities are part of our theme of “Water In Our World.”
Thanksgiving will be here in a few weeks. Before we leave to spend the holiday with our family and friends, our third grade students will perform in our annual Thanksgiving Program. The show is called “Friendship and Togetherness, with a theme of standing up for each other even when times get tough! The program will be held on November 21st at 1:15 P.M. Our students will certainly usher in the holiday spirit.
November 27th is our Parent Visitation Night for students in grades K-4 and November 28th for students in grades 5-8. Parents may visit with their child’s teachers to check in on their child’s academic progress. Parental involvement is important to a child’s success in school. Please make every effort to meet with your child’s teachers.
Just a reminder, there will be no school on Tuesday, November 7th because of a Professional Development Day for teachers. There is no school on Friday, November 10th in observance of Veterans’ Day. We thank all our veterans for their service to our country.
On behalf of the entire Beebe School Community we wish all our families a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
