Dear Beagle Middle School Parents, 

We hope that you and your family were able to enjoy time together over break.  It’s hard to imagine that we are now moving into the second week of the second trimester! Our students did an amazing job this past week in showing high levels of Comet PRIDE returning from break.  
Here are some updates that we wanted to pass along:

Girls’ Basketball Parent Meeting: Girls’ basketball season is about to begin, and Mrs. Shumway–Science teacher and coach–will be hosting an informational parent meeting on Wednesday, December 7th at 6:30pm in the Beagle cafe’.  For more information, click here: 7th and 8th Grade Girls Basketball Parent Meeting.pdf

  • Volunteers will need to fill out the online volunteer registration form through the link on the Grand Ledge Public Schools website, but this can be completed later in the year.  
  • Please consider bringing freebies or swag or any other fun thing to help students remember your career.
