Welcome Back 2022-2023

Dear Beagle Middle School Parents, 

We are excited to kick off another exciting school year, and we look forward to working with you and your child this school year! With the last few weeks of summer vacation winding down, we wanted to reach out with a few brief reminders regarding back to school information.  

Schedule Pick Up and School Pictures: 

7th grade schedule pick up and school picture day will be on Wednesday, August 24th from 8am - 12pm at Beagle Middle School.

8th grade schedule pick up and school picture day will be on Thursday, August 25th from 8am-12pm at Beagle Middle School.

Students are not required to pick up their printed schedule; we simply offer this as an option to our students and families.  Schedule pick-up is a great opportunity, however, to become familiar with the building, work locker combinations, etc. Student schedules will be available in PowerSchool the week of August 22nd. 

Geskus Photography will be reaching out to our parents this week via email. If you are interested in purchasing school pictures, then please be sure to review the email sent by Geskus for further information that will expedite the picture-taking process and logistics during schedule pick-up. 

Orientation: will be on Tuesday, August 30th from 4:30-6pm.  This is an opportunity for students and parents to meet teachers and walk through the building before the first day of school.  

School Supplies: At the middle level, we encourage parents to wait until after the first day of school to purchase detailed, specific school supplies.  The good news is that despite the fact that our middle schoolers will be working with six different teachers, the necessary supplies will be very minimal.  For those interested in purchasing school supplies before the year begins, we suggest purchasing the following items: three-ring binder with six tab dividers or six two-pocket folders, #2 pencils, pens, basic highlighters, and a spiral-bound notebook.  Please note that all students will receive a planner and a chromebook this year to support their learning and organization.  

First Day of School: August 31st, half-day, 7:55am-10:50am.

Future Communications and Newsletters: We will continue to communicate via email over the next few weeks before the beginning of the school year, and these communications will contain more detailed information as we get closer to the start of the school year.  In future emails, we will discuss the following: bell schedule, transportation procedures, lockers, backpacks, passing time, lunches, chromebook distribution, and many other important pieces of information that is vital to know just before school begins.  

Once the school year begins, we send our newsletter to parents on Friday mornings in email format via SchoolMessenger (PowerSchool).  We send our newsletters in this fashion because we embed informative links and resources directly into the email for ease of use and function for our parents.  Please note that each communication will have the yellow “Looks Safe” banner at the top, so please be sure not to block or deny the newsletters or emails because future communications will not be sent if they are ever blocked or not accepted. 

Again, we are excited to kick off another great school year, and we look forward to working with you and your child this year.  

Take care,

Dave Kushman, Principal

Eric Leopold, Assistant Principal
