A Message from the Principal

Dear Families,


It is with both joy and sadness that I sit down to write my last Beverly Cleary newsletter article!  On one hand, I am looking forward to developing this next chapter of my life and spending more time at home with my family.  On the other hand, I will miss my day-to-day connections with our wonderful staff, families and especially our students!  Their constant curiosity and love of learning make this such an incredible place to work!  I am thankful that the final of my 31 years in PPS ended at Beverly Cleary.

As always the end of the school year is filled with change and activity, so grab your calendars and mark down these important events.

•           Early Dismissal on June 3rd for the Jr. Rose Parade

•           June 5th- Field Day

•           June 10th- Eight Grade activities and Volleyball game

•           June 11- Last day of school and 8th grade promotion Ceremony at 6:00

Finally, I extend my deepest gratitude to this wonderful parent community.  Your ongoing support this year has been phenomenal and allowed our three campuses to function smoothly.  I have been extremely fortunate in my PPS career to work in several wonderful and welcoming communities.  The support from families at Beverly Cleary is among the best I have experienced, and I know you will continue to support Teri and her administrative team as they venture into next year.

With deepest gratitude and appreciation,
