Welcome Beamer Park Families and Students to the 2021-22 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 third 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.
As we know, this year will look a little different from those in the past. 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.
The families of Beamer Park 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. This year, we will be intentional with building relationships, communication, and 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 and students, staff, maestr@s, and students as well as student to student. Part of this includes providing more time to focus on social emotional learning daily in order to build better connections.
We will continue to improve COMMUNICATION this year. Parents are a pivotal piece to our success every year, but this year more than ever before. We are striving for fast, frequent, and meaningful messages. 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 as this will be instrumental in communication this year.
Our Beamer Park Community is committed to preparing and empowering students for a future of endless possibilities, we will focus on 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.
The Safety of our students, families and staff is our number one priority. As we know, we are currently in the midst of a global pandemic, and we are adhering to all safety guidelines which includes wearing face coverings and taking all preventative measures. 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 Park familias!
