Hollyrood Traffic Pattern  We are experiencing traffic problems at the Hollyrood Campus.  To avoid frustration, please enter on the NE 35th Place to Hollyrood Court and exit 36th Ave. to Knott Street making a one-way traffic pattern.  Vehicles cannot travel in both directions safely on Hollyrood Ct. during drop-off and pick-up times.  Parents/Students are on their bicycles and families are crossing the crosswalk.  Please be careful and watch out for them and follow the one-way traffic pattern.  This will ensure the safety of our families. Please do not park or stop in the bus zone area or in the NO PARKING/STOPPING zones in front of the school. Hopefully this will keep our children safe!Thank you for your cooperation

A Message from the Principal

Dear Beverly Cleary Families,

It is with mixed emotions that I write my last installment of the Family Newsletter for this school year. Just like our students, I am excited for all that summer will bring, however I’m a bit nostalgic, at the same time, thinking of impending good-byes.  It has been an incredible year of learning and professional growth for me as an aspiring administrator, and a whole lot of fun teaching music again to our Kindergartners.  I will be eternally grateful to Teri Geist for her belief in my leadership abilities and her thoughtful guidance.  I am thankful to Sarah Jones and Kiya Masunaga for their support and collegiality as well.  As Kiya mentioned in the last newsletter, I, too, feel lucky to work with the amazing staff of Beverly Cleary, but I am especially grateful to my kindergarteners and their families for making this an outstanding year of learning and fun at Hollyrood!

There are always a great deal of activities going on at Beverly Cleary and this month is proving no different.  Just this Wednesday and Thursday many families took the opportunity to attend Beverly Cleary’s Art and Curriculum Nights at each of the three campuses.  It is always amazing to see the variety of artistic displays and all the student work. Both students and their teachers should be proud of all that has been accomplished.

Last week parents had a chance to attend our third Courageous Conversations About Race session of this school year. Feedback shared showed enthusiasm for the chance to come together to discuss racial issues or incidences that have occurred in our school this year. Using the Courageous Conversations protocols learned in previous sessions, parents were able to share ideas with each other about how to discuss racial issues with their children.  While this was our last session for this year, we hope to pick up where we left off and to continue to have Courageous Conversations about race next year. I hope you will join us!

As we approach the final countdown there is still much to look forward to:

           Kindergarten Music Performances 5/24 & 5/25

           Kindergarten Tour of RCP 5/26 5:30-6:30

           Field Day 6/6

           End of Year Assembly 6/7

           Junior Rose Festival Parade and Early School Dismissal  6/8 BCH BCRCP 11:00, BCF 11:15

           8th Grade Promotion  6/8 @ 6:00pm

           Final Day of school for students 6/9

Marc Jacobs says, “Let’s do what we love and do a lot of it.”  I am fortunate to work in a school and community doing a job that I truly love. I hope you all have a wonderful summer and I look forward to 2016-17!
