Dear Neighbors
Check out the good things below that are happening at Beaver Creek School, always so wonderful to see what are kids are experiencing!
On another note, Beaver Creek School is short one first grade teacher and needs housing for another one.  Superintendent Ward would work with someone who has a bachelor’s degree in another field who would like to get started in teaching and would get a lot of support and appreciation.  Please call 928-567-4631 if you are interested in the first grade position or have a lead on housing for the other teacher.
All the best,

Good Things Happening at Beaver Creek School
 
During the last two weeks of school :
  •          The 5th-8th grade students enjoyed Bell Trail. The hike was amazing.!
  •          The  forty-five  7th and 8th grade students who earned the SunSplash enjoyed a fun day in Phoenix!
  •          The Western Theme Concert was fun for all to see!
  •          The play put on by 21st Century 4th-8th graders was well attended.
  •          Mrs Guth’s annual play is always fun to watch.
  •          The kindergarten graduation was joyful and energetic!
  •          The 8th grade graduation went well. The students really listened and worked as a team .
After school was out, we prepared for the College for Kids and Kinder Boot Camp.  Thirty students are attending College for Kids!  We had 3 students in Boot Camp but they are now ready to see kindergarten in August.  None of these students had been in preschool or Head Start.   And, Diana Iverson  is now on her three week vacation ( before retirement day of June 30) after a lovely lunch put on by the office staff on Friday, June 7!
We are enjoying having an office and a maintenance youth NACOG worker this summer.

Dear Neighbors
June is here and the temps have heated up. Looking at the low 90’s this week. The calendar crew’s two local favorites are in full bloom-the birds of paradise and the yuccas. Always a joy to see each summer!
Saturday morning at the Beaver Creek Adult Center is the monthly pancake breakfast from 8 to 10 AM followed by the semiannual Dump the Drugs. If you need to get rid of old or unneeded medications, please stop by and see Jeannette Estes and Deputy Alex Hawkins in the library portion of the Adult Center from 10 AM to Noon who will graciously assist you.
The summer library programs start this week at the Beaver Creek Library with interesting sessions for all ages. The schedule and flyers are below. Don’t be bored, please come make some new friends and learn something, too.
The annual Back to School BBQ at Beaver Creek School will be on August 1 this year. Lyndel Kelley, Administrative Assistant, is doing the planning and sends this invitation:
Dear Community Member:
          Beaver Creek School is planning its Annual Back to School Barbeque.  It is a perfect time for Community, School, and Local Agencies to come together and make information available.  The Back to School Barbeque will take place on Thursday, August 1st from 6:00 until 7:30 P.M.  Set up will begin at 5:30.
          We would like to extend an invitation to your group or agency to reserve a table at this event.  If you are interested please call Beaver Creek School at (928) 567-4631 or respond to this email with the name of your group or agency, contact name, and phone number.  Please respond by Monday July 17 if you are interested in having your group represented.
 
In preparation for the summer monsoon season for those who live near the creek or a large wash, please note the location of the two sandbag areas. One has a new entrance and the other has been relocated. The Rimrock location is at the back of the same lot next to the post office. Access it via the post office entrance and continue on the Beaver Creek Baptist parking lot and turn left. In Lake Montezuma, the Sycamore Park parking lot is no longer used. Instead, turn off Montezuma Ave onto Seneca Ln and you will see the sand location.
  Hope to see you at the library & eating pancakes,

Dear Neighbors

Javelina family crossing at Lake Shore Dr–photo by 
Edward Borowski

Most of us have seen many a May with sparse rainfall. To have several showers and continued wildflower production is an unexpected and joyful treat for our eyes. Last Saturday’s hikers on the trail to the Well Overlook were especially rewarded with a fine flower show.

Tomorrow-Saturday morning is another good one for a hike although there is a possibility of a shower later. It’s a good day to visit the early morning food bank at Beaver Creek School, cut weeds in your yard and take the slash to the free drop off outside of Camp Verde and return to get your vehicle washed by Key Club High School students at the fire station.
Postal Carrier
 Food Drive 2017

It’s also a time of year to donate items. The PTO is having a raffle at the BC School Spring Concert this Thursday and needs more raffle items from businesses and the community. Information about this is in the special event section. The BC Adult Center is having a rummage sale on May 31/June 1 and is looking for donated items to be brought to the Center. And this Saturday is the Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Drive. Please fill your bag with nonperishable food items and leave it by your mailbox.  The food goes to our local food bank at BC School.

This Sunday is Mother’s Day; special appreciation and respect sent to all! Taco Tuesday has returned to the fire station. On Thursday, there is an informational speaker on wills, trusts and deeds at the Adult Center and the Spring Concert at Beaver Creek School. On Friday there is a play at the school. The following Saturday brings us the Donation Pancake Breakfast at the Adult Center and a Hopi Drum Concert at Montezuma Castle.
The Beaver Creek Community Association has mailed the Beaver Creek Business Directory to every mail recipient in zip codes 86335 and 86342. The paper copy won’t be replaced for two or three years. However, it’s not too late to get your business listed in the online directory. If you are a paid member of the association, it is a free listing. If not, then the cost is $25.  Please email Chris at contact@BeaverCreekAZ.us if interested. The online directory is at the web site at www.BeaverCreekAZ.us. The emergency information and important contact phone #’s prepared by the Beaver Creek Community Action Team are on page 8. This information is also in card form which makes it convenient for refrigerator doors and car glove compartments. The card is being distributed at meetings and several locations.

Mr. Womack set up water catchment barrels so we can start using rainwater for the  onsite garden.
Ms. Nunn has been working with the 21 st  Century kids on Fridays to maintain the garden. She incorporates STEAM activities into her lessons. This class provides in depth hands on learning experiences which help students to understand scientific concepts. The kids love to learn in their gardening class.
The preschool class has also been sprouting seeds and watching their bulbs bloom in the preschool garden.
The Bobcat softball and baseball teams are both working hard at practices and games. The kids are thrilled to be a part of the teams, and parents are enjoying watching as well. The ball fields look great thanks to the maintenance crew!
We will be having the Life and Safety presentation for Pre-k-3 on April 11.  Our firefighter and forest service workers get together to put on a puppet show with lights, sounds, and special surprises that help to teach our younger students about being safe.  The kids will also get to meet Smokey the Bear.
Teachers are working hard to continue to use the  Capturing Kids Hearts  program to build gratitude among our students through class meetings that discuss all of the topics and continue to keep the lesson working in our classrooms.
The Yavapai County Nurses will continue to audit our students’ health records and make sure they are properly immunized.
Ms. Artrip hosted our annual Kindergarten Roundup to welcome children who will be in kindergarten next year. We are excited to have new bobcats join our student body!

Red for Ed eNews Bulletin 4/19/2018

Dear Neighbors
 

Beaver Creek School Wednesday before school Walk-ins have continued with participants including school educators, staff and neighbors. On April 9, the Beaver Creek School Governing Board passed a resolution supporting Educators and #RedForED.  Our school board joined the governing boards of Mesa Public Schools, Tucson Unified, Flagstaff Unified, Pendergast, Yuma High School District and Phoenix High School District among others in Arizona passing similar resolutions.

The goals adopted by the #Red For Ed movement are:
  • 20% salary increase for Arizona teachers in order to create competitive pay with neighboring states.
  • Competitive pay for all Education Support Professionals.
  • Permanent certified salary structure which includes annual raises.
  • Restore education funding to 2008 levels.
  • No new tax cuts until per-pupil funding reaches the national average.
Teachers are voting this week throughout the state on whether to walk-out or not.  This decision will likely be announced this evening or early tomorrow.  Regardless of the outcome on this particular event, #RedForEd appears to be an educator movement that will continue. .
Wearing red in support of education,
. . . . . the calendar crew
