Dear Beagle Middle School Families,
Here are some updates that we wanted to share at this time:
PTO Sponsored Fundraiser, Day of Awesomeness: Students who participated in the Step It Up! fundraiser over the past few weeks will be able to engage in the Day of Awesomeness tomorrow afternoon. Students who participated were provided a pass for this event by their teachers today, and the event will take place during 6th hour and CNC class tomorrow. Students are to keep their pass for the event, check in with their 6th-hour teacher, and then head outside for the event. We thank our students and families who participated in the fundraising activity.
PTO Sponsored Fall Festival Dance: Our fall dance will be held on Friday, October 27th from 2:45-4:30 pm. We have decided to host this dance right after school as we are aware that many families have other obligations with Halloween parties and potential athletic conflicts later in the evening. We are hopeful that this will allow our middle school students to stay at Beagle, enjoy the dance, and connect with their peers. We do need parent volunteers to support with this event if possible. If you are interested in supporting with the dance, please sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0F4DAEAF2DA3FA7-44896142-beagle#/. Because we do not allow Halloween costumes during the day at Beagle, we wanted to make a note here that costumes are not permitted at the dance. We will have more information regarding the upcoming dance in subsequent newsletters.
Red Cedar Basketball Information: 7th and 8th grade Red Cedar Basketball registration is now open. This is Grand Ledge's travel basketball program and runs from the end of October through December. This is separate from Beagle Middle School's Basketball program, please see the Grand Ledge Community Recreation program for more details. Beagle Middle School boys’ basketball information will be coming out very soon. Also, Beagle Middle School girls’ basketball will begin in January, right after break, and a parent meeting will be held in December. Details regarding the parent meeting will come out at a later date.
PTO Meetings: The Hayes/Beagle PTO meetings will be hosted here at Beagle Middle School in our media center. Parents should enter through the cafeteria doors as they are open for athletic events. The media center is located in the first hallway to the left once in the cafeteria. Meetings are held from 6:30-7:30pm. The next meeting will be on Tuesday, October 17th. We greatly appreciate parent support and participation at these meetings. In addition, please follow the Hayes & Beagle PTO Facebook page for more information and updates regarding upcoming events.
