Hortencia Hernandez, Principal/Directora
Welcome Beamer Park Families and Students to the 2022-23 school year!
I am honored to serve our Beamer Park Elementary community and I am excited about continuing to work alongside my community, as I enter my fourth year as principal of Beamer Park Elementary as we work to Restore, Rebuild and Reimagine with Equity at the Center of all that we do for students. I am honored to continue to serve our Beamer Park Elementary families and I am excited about continuing to work alongside my community as we work together to achieve student success.
One thing that we have learned from this past year is that at Beamer, we are familia and we definitely faced the pandemic together, and overcame many obstacles. Our Beamer Park Elementary family is looking forward to meeting the challenges that this pandemic has brought us in order to bring you and your student(s) an amazing educational experience as we listen, learn and continue to grow together. Attached is our academic calendar.
The families of Beamer Park Elementary are unique in that together, we are a community. We are committed to the success of every child, and we will work collaboratively to assure that happens. We understand that the last two years, living through a global pandemic, has definitely made learning and engaging difficult for everyone. This year, we are committed to be intentional with building relationships, communication, and delivery of instruction. With these three areas in the forefront of everything we do, we hope to make every classroom a place where students feel loved, supported, and successful.
Our first two weeks of the school year will be all about getting to know our students, discovering how
they learn best, and establishing respect and relationships between maetr@s, our students and all
staff. Part of this includes providing more time to focus on social emotional learning daily in order to build better connections and meet our students where they are. We are also working to create student leaders on campus and listen to student voices through class discussions, clubs and surveys.
We will continue to improve communication this year. Parents are a pivotal part of our
success every year, but this year more than ever before. We are striving for frequent, and
meaningful messages each week. I will continue to deliver weekly messages on Sundays using ParentSquare. All families will be able to complete data confirmation and make changes to your current parent portal starting on August 1st, as we went paperless two years ago.
Our Beamer Park Community is committed to preparing and empowering students for a future of
endless possibilities, we will focus on delivering the best first instruction. This means continuing to honor our dual language model, teacher collaboration, improve our practices through professional development to assist our teachers and staff with engaging all learners as we return to in person instruction. We are excited to be part of the Project Promesa Grant which will work in conjunction with CABE (California Association of Bilingual Education) to provide professional development for all of our maestr@s for the next four years. We look forward to including our families in our parent partnership with Promesa. We will share more details in the coming weeks.
I am looking forward to an amazing year. This year will definitely come with its challenges, but
through commitment, passion and determination, we will make this an amazing year for our Beamer
