Dear Beagle Middle School Families, 

Here are some updates we wanted to share with you at this time:

PTO Sponsored Spring Dance: Tomorrow, we will be selling tickets for our semi-formal dance during lunches.  Tickets are $15, and 25% of all ticket sales go back to our students, funding our Comet PRIDE School Store!  Tickets will also be sold at the door.  The dance will be tomorrow evening from 6:30-8:30 pm. It is a semi-formal dance, but students are not required to dress up.  We wanted to inform families that the parking lots *may* be full due to a large baseball event that will be running late into the evening.  While we typically do not allow students to walk home from dances or off of school property–especially earlier in the year when it’s dark at 8:30 pm–we are going to be flexible for this dance.  Students, with parent permission, may walk home from the dance, or walk off of school property to have their parents pick them up down the street to avoid the potential traffic from the athletic event.  

Lugnuts: Two weeks ago in science classes students received a permission slip to attend the Lansing Lugnuts game on Wednesday, May 29th. The permission slip and money need to be turned in by Monday, April 29th, this is an entire school field trip so please plan accordingly as students will be gone from approximately 9:15 am until 2:10 pm. More information is provided within the field trip permission slip. Thank you to our PTO and student fundraising this fall for bringing down the cost of the trip significantly. 

MSBOA District 8 Solo and Ensemble Festival: Congratulations to our Band students and Mrs. Zerman for their outstanding performance at the festival.  Our participants came home with 8 Division 2 and 42 Division 1 medals!  This is outstanding! Again, congratulations to all of those that participated and Mrs. Zerman for her leadership. 

Lost and Found: The lost and found is completely overflowing. Please have your child check this as it will be cleaned up and donated within the next few weeks. 

Families Not Returning GLPS Next Year: If your student will not be returning to GLPS next year, please be sure to reach out to your building’s secretary.  At Beagle, please reach out to Meagan McMillan  If you have already made contact with appropriate secretaries across the district, you are all set.
