  • Welcome to Beverly Park

    One of our Four Essentials for Success at Highline Public Schools is families and community partners with strong connections to our schools. We value good communication and collaboration. Families and community members are encouraged to participate in school activities and in educating students in school, at home, and in the community.

Parents and Guardians

 

It is hard to believe that we have only 7 weeks of school left, thank you for your on-going support for our students! I wanted to ask for your help with a couple of things as we start the month of May:

  • Students are beginning to get rough with each other on the playground again and we are working on this as a school. You can also help by reminding your student that we are a “hands off school” and discussing with them how that helps them to be SAFE, RESPECTFUL and RESPONSIBLE
  • I am hosting my last Principal Coffee Chat this Thursday from 9:30-10:30 am in the cafeteria, please join me as I will share some ideas we have for improving our school in 2015-16 and seek your input!
  • We are looking forward to 2015-16 and want to make sure we have the right teacher fit for your student next year. If you are moving or know that your student will not attend Beverly Park in September, please let us know right away, thank you!

Lastly, our students in grades 3, 4 5 and 6 have started the SBAC or Smarter Balanced Assessment in both math and reading/writing. We are sending the calendar home to you as a separate document and posting it to our website as well. You can best support your students’ success with good rest and making sure they eat breakfast at home or school on testing days. Another important way we can ALL support students for success is to let them know how much we believe in their abilities and encourage them to stay calm and focused during the test. We know that the questions push students to think critically and that slowing down to read/answer questions carefully is important for their success. If students express any nervousness or concern, talk to them about their feelings. Knowing it is ok to express those concerns can often help to relieve them. If you need more help and tools for this, please let me or our counselors know.

Thank you for your support!

  • All Schools Are Open on Tuesday, May 26

    All Highline schools will be open on May 26 after school was canceled on May 21 due to a one-day teacher walkout. This date was chosen by the school district and Highline Education Association (the teachers' union) as the date that would have the least impact on families.

  • Community Gives Feedback on Bond

    Community members strongly support building new schools but want a more transparent process for developing a bond plan, according to a survey run by Highline Public Schools from April 22 through May 11. The survey was launched to get community feedback after the failure of the February capital construction bond. The bond aimed to alleviate crowding in elementary schools and fix or replace aging schools.

  • All Schools Closed May 21 due to Teacher Walkout

    Highline teachers have voted to participate in a one-day walkout on May 21. We do not have enough substitute teachers to cover all classes that day, so school is cancelled on May 21.
