First off, a huge THANK YOU to all of the wonderful
staff, parents and students who volunteered their time on
Saturday, September 27 to help re-paint and spruce up our
playground. Your help was invaluable in contributing to
our positive, peaceful atmosphere at Beagle. Thank you
for helping to ensure that Beagle Rocks!
The PTO Fun Run was this week and we are eagerly
anticipating the amount of funds raised. If you still have
loved ones or friends who did not make a pledge but
would like to, you have until Wednesday, October 8 to
turn your pledge money in.

As always, if you have any questions or would like to
discuss any concerns, please contact me.


We understand that the parking lot can be a little
hectic in the morning. Parents, please be mindful
of the flow of traffic when dropping off students
in the morning. If you are dropping off, pull all
the way forward. We try to get four cars in front
of the crosswalk and four behind so that we can
have eight carloads dropped off at a time. When
those students are clear of cars, the TA's will flag
you all forward and the next eight cars will pull
up. Please be patient and DO NOT pull out of
line and go around. This is for the safety of our
students. And while we realize that it is
sometimes frustrating, please be aware that
students are around and use appropriate language.
In addition, please be mindful of other persons
that are pulling through the lot looking for a
parking spot. Thank you in advance for your

Lost and Found: We have
already acquired a lot of
lost and found items and we
have only been in school
for four weeks! Because
there were so many lost and found items at the
end of last school year, we have decided to
completely empty out our lost and found area
twice during the school year. Any items still
remaining after the November and March
conferences will be donated to Ken’s closet.
Look for reminders in upcoming newsletters.
Thank You.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month.
However, at Beagle Elementary, bully prevention does not
start on October 1 and end on October 31.
Bullying: Basic Facts
Bullying occurs when another student or a group of
students REPEATEDLY harms a student,
psychologically and/or physically.
Bullies are typically physically, psychologically, or
socially stronger than the children they bully. There is an
imbalance of power.
Bullying may present itself in different forms, including,
but not limited to, physical assaults or aggressions, verbal
and/or physical threats, intentional exclusion from a
group, spreading rumors, menacing gestures or faces, or
REPEATED name calling.
Prevention is the best strategy to address the problem of
bullying. Beagle Elementary does their part by imposing
strict policies against bullying and implementing
classroom prevention lessons.
Getting involved in your child’s life both inside and
outside of school is important. As a result, you will see
how your child interacts with other children and will be
able to take steps if you see any potentially troublesome
behaviors that are taking place. Talking with you child
about how to engage in non-violent interactions will
prepare your child for such situations in school and
