Dear Parents and Students:
On behalf of the Beulah Elementary School Family and community, it is truly my pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you as we begin the 2018-2019 school year. To those students and parents who are new to BES, we extend an especially warm welcome and best wishes for an exciting and productive year in our school. We hope that you will quickly feel at home and become involved in the activities of our school through PTO. I hope your summer has gone well and you are excited for the beginning of the new school year.
I know this is going to be an exciting year as we collectively strive to create a culture of learning. I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children and this community. I feel extremely fortunate to be working with such an exceptional group of students, families,
faculty, and staff members.
I truly believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the children of Beulah Elementary School. Education is a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians, and community. All children are more successful when we work as a team to achieve educational goals. We invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our PTO, or attending and supporting school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.
At Beulah Elementary School, safety is our top priority. We ask that you support these efforts by following our visitor guidelines as stated in our school handbook. Please sign in and make sure you have a visitor’s badgelocated on your chest when visiting our school. Additionally, photo identification is now required for any visitor entering Beulah Elementary School. If you need to change your child’s transportation home from school, please send a note that is dated and signed by the parent/guardian with a phone number for questions or concerns. For the safety of the students, NO phone calls will be accepted to change a student’s transportation home; however, email and texts received by 1:30 pm CST with a photo ID are acceptable. It is the guardian’s responsibility to ensure this information is received by our staff. Contact Mrs. Eastridge (Eastridge.Sharon@lee.k12.al.us) or Mrs. McCool (McCool.Kimberly@lee.k12.al.us) with the necessary information by the appropriate time.
I hope that each of you have been enjoying these past few weeks of summer and are now looking forward to a great school year. This year will be busy, exciting, and hopefully very rewarding for each student.
Best wishes to each of you and thank you for your support.
Arthur D. Caffey
