January 6, 2020
Please allow me to take this opportunity to wish all members of the Bradley Beach Elementary School a very Happy New Year for 2020. The new year brings with it an excitement for resolutions and goals to better ourselves personally and professionally. I look forward to the successes our students and staff will experience in the new year.
I would like to highlight a few events that will take place in the month of January. Schools will be closed on January 20th to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Board of Education will hold their January meeting on the 21st in the Auditorium at 7:00 PM. On Friday, January 24th, the Winter Dance will take place for students in grades 5 – 8 from 6:30 – 8:00 PM. Additionally, I would like to invite all students and parents to the annual PTO Family Fun Night on Thursday, January 30th, from 6:30 – 8:00 PM.
During the winter months it is most likely that the natural flow of the school schedule can be interrupted due to inclement weather. The primary method of communication during a weather related school delay, early dismissal, or school closing will be through the use of the Honeywell Instant Alert for Schools. It is imperative that all families update their most current contact information to receive Honeywell messages in the case of a change in the schedule. To update your information, please go to www.instantalert.honeywell.com or utilize the link under “Parents” on our district website. If this is the first time you are accessing the Honeywell website, you will need to create an account. If you have already created an account, you can use your username and password to access your account and update your information. The school district has populated the program with all of the students and we utilized the contact information we were provided at registration.
Finally, I would like to congratulate our Teacher of the Year, Ms. Donna Hamernick and our Support Staff Member of the Year, Mrs. Traci Rankel. Their recognition is well deserved for both staff members, as they consistently better the experience for all our students. Congratulations!
