Dear Neighbors
 
Beaver Creek School is still looking for a full-time custodian. If there are any questions please call the front office and ask for Lyndel Kelley, 928-567-4631. Applications can be printed off the school website at www.bcs.k12.az.us or picked up in the main office of the school. An IVP fingerprint clearance card is required and information on where to get it is available at the front office.
A neighbor in McGuireville has reported an attempted telephone scam. The scammer claimed to be representing APS and threatened to cut off electric service if a phone number was not called in half an hour and the bill paid. Fortunately, our neighbor did not comply and instead reported the call and checked with APS. APS does NOT request payment via phone call. Please be cautious about any phone requests for personal information or money.
Coming up this weekend is the Dance and Sing the Night Away at the BC Adult Center and the Fall Star Party at Beaver Creek Library (meet inside, view outside), both on Saturday.

Chris from Yavapai County Public Works is hard at work below.  Contractor Earth Resources is continuing to complete chip sealing in several areas.

Beaver Creek School was busy with special projects for our young students and training for the school staff which you will enjoy reading about below. At the end of the article is a final note on the U.A.C. company which was soliciting donations from area businesses. The donations are gratefully appreciated and a contract which was thought to be expired in 2011 is now officially terminated.
Looks like the Gasmart has finished repainting. The new color scheme sure changes what used to be an eyesore while driving on BC Road. Thank you to that business for making such a pleasant and unexpected change!
A buffet of fine activities awaits your choices for the next 4 days and beyond. Tomorrow is the Third Thursday evening at the businesses along Beaver Creek Rd who have something special for visitors at that time. On Friday, BCPHS has special guest speaker rancher & businessman Andy Groseta and Toddler Time is offered at the library.

Through The Lens of Hope
Good Things Happening in Beaver Creek School District-
September 2019!
Mr. Cody Kukulski’s second grade class went on a field trip to Red Rock State Park. They hiked and learned about bugs which tied in with their curriculum. Mrs. Cindy Ramirez and Mrs. Jordan Harris went to the Curtain Up series’ play about the American Revolution which was performed by Yavapai College students. They had a great time and learned a lot!
Mrs. Jill Agnew, Mrs. Cassie Weber, and Ms. Marla Sutcliffe Completed Kids at Hope Training Module 1. Board clerk, Mrs. Brandi Bateman, offered her time an expertise to this training. The participants are now knowledgeable in the philosophy which drives our work with kids.BC School Dist
The Sedona Literacy Center has resumed tutoring services for select 2nd and 3rd grade students. They focus exclusively on reading and promote growth through their 1:1 system of instruction.
Ms. Yolanda Sprinz has resumed K-Kids and Builders Club, two clubs for kids which are sponsored by Kiwanis. This club fosters good citizenship, strong moral character, community service, and leadership skills.
Students attended the Mindset Mission assembly. The assembly teaches kids to never give up, encourage others, and to do their best. The kids had a great time and learned some important skills too.
Ms. Ori Womack and Mrs. Lyndel Kelley attended the Arizona State Retirement System conference. They received updates to the system, legislative updates, and continued to develop their understanding of the program and its benefits so that they can continue to serve our staff at the highest level possible.
Students and staff did a great job on picture day staying organized and helping one another through the process. A special thank you to Ms. Sharon Brooks and Mrs. Micca Martinez for organizing the event, and to our parent volunteers Mrs. Crystal Turnbell and Mrs. Taylor Morales for their hard work.
Superintendent Karin Ward participated in a panel discussion on mental health and schools in Arizona. She was selected because of her long history of employing various techniques and partnerships with agencies such as Spectrum Healthcare to meet the many mental and behavioral health needs of students in our community.
We look forward to our Annual Walk to School Day October 1 on Beaver Creek Road.  Please be aware of slow traffic from 7 to 8 AM.
Students and staff will be enjoying Fall Break Monday, October 6 through Monday
Beaver Creek School District has been in communication with David Comer, Customer Service Manager of the Universal Ad Company (U.A.C.). We were sent the contract from Fanfare Sports from 2009 when I signed an agreement with this company.  We received Fundraising products in 2010 and 2011.
The company’s agreement shows that the agreement is in place until it is terminated by either party. I was under the impression that Fanfare Sports was no longer in business as we had not received products since 2011. I was mistaken. The name has evidently changed to UAC.
David Comer guaranteed that he will be sending the school fundraising products that are already in production. We appreciate that and will let the community know when the products arrive. After this fundraising shipment Beaver Creek School District requests termination of the agreement.
For community businesses who donated to UCA, thank you. We appreciate your dedication to our school fundraising needs.
In the future Beaver Creek School will always let the community know when there are fundraising efforts for school projects.
Mrs. Karin Ward

Beaver Creek eNews 10/4/2019

Dear Neighbors
We are so fortunate to be looking at another week of highs in the 80’s and lows in the 50’s. Such perfect October weather!! While on the subject of good things locally, the Beaver Creek Gasmart looks much better with its new tan & rust paint job. POBs (Pats on Back) to those who made the paint change possible.
Also, on the good news front. Yavapai County has begun a month-long project to improve the safety of our signs themselves and their use for those who observe them. Jon David, Signs & Pavement Markings Project Manager for Yavapai County Public Works, reports that “Crews are out working on a project in the Lake Montezuma/ Rimrock/ Mcguireville areas. The reason for the project is to change the sign mounting post from a U-channel type post which currently exists to a square post telespar type that is mounted in a concrete base. The new base and post comply with guidelines that we must follow, and it improves response time for signs that become damaged. We are also replacing around 400 street name signs in the area that do not comply with retro reflectivity standards. These types of projects have been ongoing in Yavapai County for the past few years.” More POB’s!
And now the ugly. A resident took a drive up the road past Sedona Sky School and while hiking found that people are dumping yard debris (tree limbs etc) and construction debris (broken cement blocks etc) in two different areas off the paved road and on the dirt side roads. Please utilize your burn permits for the slash and use the Camp Verde Transfer Station (the dump) or Grey Wolf for the construction waste. If possible and safe, report dumping in the surrounding forest to the Red Rock Ranger Station and on private property to YCSO.

Beaver Creek eNews 9/23/2019

Dear Neighbors
Maybe we’ll be enjoying some rain (or hail) with our busy week in Beaver Creek.  Please be safe and heed all alerts.  Everything is still being held later in the week, so don’t miss out on the Kiwanis Donation Spaghetti Dinner at the Fire House on Thursday or the free food and activities all day on Saturday in Rollins Park sponsored by Grace Community Lutheran Church, Beaver Creek Trails Coalition and Beaver Creek Kiwanis. Wonderful food and snow cones are free. Don’t miss face painting, games, a car show and trails information.  BC Kiwanis is working with Supervisor Thurman and Yavapai County Facilities to purchase additional playground equipment for Sycamore Park using Kiwanis funds.  Here is an example:
Beaver Creek School currently has a position open for a custodian. If there are any questions, please call the front office and ask for Lyndel Kelley. Applications can be printed off of the website at bcs.k12.az.us or picked up in the main office of the school. An IVP fingerprint clearance card is required.  Information on where to get the fingerprint card is also available from Lyndel.
The final nine fire hydrants (from the more than 50 total) have been installed thanks to our generous community benefactor Eddie Lodge. His bequest of $550,000 dollars toward the fire protection of Beaver Creek has been fulfilled. Fire Chief Terry Keller plans to put any remaining amount after the probate is completed toward the purchase of a water truck which will help serve those in the community whose residences aren’t located near water lines.

September Happenings around BC 9/18/2019

Dear Neighbors
Lots of good things happening around Beaver Creek. Check out the “Good Things” happening at Beaver Creek School. If you missed the Kids at Hope training held at school today, no worries. It will be held again in October.
The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors unanimously passed the zoning change request for the 8 acres across Beaver Creek Rd for the potential location of a shopping center with a grocery store. Stipulations requested by the Beaver Creek Community Association which will protect the community in the event that the project falls through were included. These were agreed to by the applicant. The Association reported that the request was in compliance with the community plan, Vision 2020, and with the majority of the community who commented in favor of the zoning change. However, this does NOT mean an immediate start on the project. First a design plan must be approved in conjunction with Development Services and Public Works that will include consideration for traffic circulation, drainage, soil composition, etc. The Dave Wingfield / Beaver Creek Rd intersection may well need some improvements. So probably nothing to see for quite a while.
The community plan was completed with the assistance of a mailed survey to every mailbox and route delivery address in Beaver Creek and to out of area property owners. Additionally, there were public meetings. It is a very important document describing our community. If you would like to read it, here is the link. Please disregard the word Draft at the top. This is the version that was accepted by the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors in 2011.
At 10 AM today in the BC Adult Center Kayo Parsons-Korn is presenting slides on Native Gardens and has some seeds to share.  On Saturday at 8 AM is a bird walk at Montezuma Well.  On Monday is the first meeting at 1 PM of the Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club at a new location and time.  And be prepared for the Spaghetti Dinner on Thursday and Oktoberfest on the following Saturday.
Enjoying the beginning fall weather,
