Aug. 28, 2015

Beach Families:

I am excited to be Beach School's new principal. As explained in an e-mail to all families, Cate Boyce needed to relocate to Seattle to assist her mother, recently diagnosed with serious heart disease. 

I know this is sudden news, yet I am prepared to hit the ground running and I look forward to meeting you and working together to keep Beach the strong school that it is. 

You can learn more about me in the announcement from Superintendent Carole Smith.

Thank you and see you soon!

The PPS School Improvement Bond work was completed in a number of areas throughout the main building, annex and portables this summer. This included seismic strengthening and improved accessibility to bathrooms and the entrance to our portables. In addition, we are excited to announce that two science labs have been built. The Installation of an elevator is still under construction. This will continue for several more months and we are working closely with contractors and district staff to develop plans, so that there will be minimal impact on instruction and access to the building.
