Summer Time

Summer break is beating on the door as the last days of 2013-2014 school year comes to an end. Summer camps, swimming, and sleeping in are on all the student’s minds as they await the last bell on Thursday June 5th. 
Thank you for all you’ve done to support your child and your child’s teacher throughout the year. Our campus community is special because of the partnership we have with our teachers and staff.
As individual paths take new directions, we will say goodbye to some of our teachers leaving Beethoven. Mrs. Clark from 2nd Grade will be retiring and enjoying a new path of life! Mrs. Clark, enjoy your free time, know we will be thinking of you. Mrs. Argumedo, a 1st grade teacher, will be moving to a new school that is closer to her home. Both teachers will be greatly missed. We will meet our new teachers next year!
Good Luck and farewell to our 5th grade students. We wish you happiness and success at your new schools. You will all be missed. It is not the goodbye that hurts, but the flashbacks that follow.
From all of us on the PTA/FOB Board, we hope all of our students, families, staff and supporters have a wonderful summer. We look forward to seeing you back in August!
