This Week in Beaver Creek 1/7/2018

Dear Neighbors
Jeannette & Carlos
Back in December, YCSO Deputy Carlos Godina and BCCAT Chair Jeannette Estes held their bi-annual Dump the Drugs event at the Beaver Creek Adult Center.  This time the super duo collected 14 lbs of pills, 8 lbs of liquids, 9 lbs of containers and 2 lbs of needles.  Thank you to everyone who dropped off medications for safe disposal.  The event will be held again in May.  If you need to dispose drugs safely in the meantime, both the Camp Verde Marshal’s Office and the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office in Camp Verde west of I-17 have ongoing collection as do many other first responder sites in the county and throughout Arizona.
Come out and join the Beaver Creek Trails Coalition for a fun and informative afternoon or morning on a trail at one of the Second Saturday Hikes planned for the next three months.  Second Saturday Hikes are not just about hiking the recently completed Wickiup Mesa Trails, but also give hikers a chance to learn about plants and wildlife of this area, the geology, and about the native people who inhabited this area long ago.  Each Second Saturday Hike features a local expert on a topic of interest who will not only “walk the walk” along the trail but also “talk the talk” of the day’s special topic.  VV Archeology Center Executive Director Ken Zoll will be the first guest for the hike this Saturday which starts at 1 PM at the Forestglen Trailhead.
The Beaver Creek Kiwanis kids’ clubs and our local 4H students will do their traditional Christmas tree recycling in conjunction with the Redrock Ranger District in Coconino National Forest.  You may drop off your undecorated trees next to the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station.  The final date for collection has not yet been set, but will happen soon.  The trees are placed in a wash to help prevent erosion.
Other local special events this month are the MLK Day of Service at Montezuma Well, Meet the Press at the Beaver Creek School Board Room and the annual Beaver Creek Community Association meeting.  The monthly food bank distribution is at Beaver Creek School this Saturday.  The next week and a half are packed with meetings and activities.  Please look either at the listings below are at the online calendar for detailed information and contacts.
Enjoying the mild January weather,
. . . . . the calendar crew

Calendar Crew eNews 1/3/2018

Dear Neighbors
The long spell without rain continued through the holidays.  It’s hard to wish for much needed rain when the weather has been so beautiful the way it is.
2018 is here and burn permits are available at the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station unless the crew is out on a call.  (There is no longer admin staff at the station).  The permits are free and burning is allowed from March 1 through May 31 and August 1 through November 30, 2018.
January has again brought us bowhunters shooting deer within our community.  This is unfortunately legal unless you have posted your property NO HUNTING.  The Beaver Creek Community Association will purchase and deliver signs to you if no one at your residence has time to get them.  We did this last year as we have done in previous years.  The open spaces near riparian areas and game trails are a particular problem.  The owners of those properties need to be contacted for permission to post.  If you are having difficulty finding the names of the owners, please contact Janet at 301-2749 who can often help with that.
This evening the Drumming Circle meets at the Adult Center and tomorrow the Silver Circle Women’s Group meets there.  On Saturday the bird walk will start at the Montezuma Well picnic area and the historic rock school is open at Beaver Creek School.  The holiday art exhibit at the Beaver Creek Library runs through Saturday.  Information is included below on the Day of Service at Montezuma Well to be held on MLK Day since there is a registration deadline of January 11.  All the information is below.
Looking forward to burning off some calories,

Sharing the Holiday Spirit in Beaver Creek

Dear Neighbors
This weekend’s temperatures are in the fifties which is quite the temperature drop.  There is a possibility of some rain tonight or tomorrow which would sure be nice.  But although it’s a little cloudy today, the weather is just fine to get out and do some of the activities.
The Calendar Crew is so proud of this whole community which has come together to make a happy Christmas for many of our children and adults who are just barely getting by.  Beaver Creek School has provided presents for 99 children, the Beaver Creek Kiwanis are gifting food and presents to 60 children and their parents, and the Beaver Creek Adult Center is doing the same for 17 children and their parents.  Also, many individuals from the community and from around the Verde Valley have adopted families here.
Today is the last day that Christmas House is open at the Beaver Creek Gasmart.  On Sunday Kiwanis will distribute toys, food and some gift cards to 22 adopted families.  Kiwanis will also provide Big 5 gift cards for the 6 orphaned men at the Olive Branch group home in Montezuma Haven for a new pair of shoes and provide some assistance to others in need.  Thanks to the Lake Montezuma Women’s Club and the Sedona Lutheran Church turkeys were available at the Beaver Creek Food Bank last Saturday.  Beaver Creek Kiwanis bought 28 turkeys for Beaver Creek Transit to deliver to those unable to come to the food bank.  Rask”s Auto Service is continuing to collect winter food for the food bank.  The Giving Angels of Sedona sent a large bag of presents to each of the Meals on Wheels recipients and the Verde Valley Senior Center is sending additional items to several MOW folks who need it most.
The Redrock Ranger District in conjunction with the Beaver Creek Trails Coalition is enjoying some Dutch oven treats at the Forestglen Trail Head on Wickiup Mesa prior to improving the last leg of the Wickiup Mesa Trails this morning.  From Montezuma Ave, take Cliffside Trail up to Geronimo and continue on Geronimo to Forestglen.  Turn right and continue to the trail head.  Volunteers are welcomed!
Dump the Drugs Here
A guided bird walk is available at Montezuma Well this morning and a bunch of club and organizations are meeting today.  Another chance to Dump your Drugs today is at the Beaver Creek Adult Center including both prescription and nonprescription medications for people and pets.  There probably won’t be another chance to dump locally until May.  So please get to the Adult Center between 10 AM and noon.  And don’t forget that the Beaver Creek Library is open on Saturdays. except for holidays, where artwork is on display and a new room is open to all.  The Beaver Creek School Winter Concert is this coming Wednesday.

Please read “The Good Things Happening at Beaver Creek School” in the article below.  Just amazing!

Thankful for this community and our friends throughout the Verde Valley :& Sedona,
. . . . . the calendar crew

We will be meeting at the Forestglen Trailhead at 8:30 AM for cowboy coffee and cobbler, and to receive our orientation before heading out to build some trail.  The South Sunset Loop segment traverses a scenic hillside, relocating the trail to higher ground and avoiding some problem erosion spots.  It will be a trail to be proud of. I hope to see you all there.  Contact Stan Mish, president, Beaver Creek Trails Coalition at 928-606-2925 for more information.  (See Flyer Below)

The Good Things Happening at Beaver Creek School
December 13, 2017
 

Cheryl Guth (4th Grade Teacher) Reports:

Cheryl Guth
  • Each year the fourth graders decorate a paper turkey with their families for a contest in class. Students work with their families to create something spectacular, and they did! The turkeys were beautiful and the class had a great time.
  • Students are having fun working on the door contest which is a way to show students traditions from around the world. Each class has a country that they learn about, they then teach the other kids about the country through the decoration of their classroom doors.
Margee Cowan (College and Career Readiness Counselor) Reports:
  • This fall the eighth grade has got to go to both Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff and Yavapai College the Sedona Campus.  By getting to go and visit these campuses the students can more readily see areas that are of interest to them.  It also helps them decide on classes they would like to take in high school to prepare them for selecting a college or university.  The cooking and baking classes at Yavapai were extremely fun because they learned they got to eat what they cooked.   Seventh grade also visited Yavapai College but in Clarkdale.  They did a scavenger hunt around campus and learned a lot about what Yavapai College has to offer.  It is a “good thing” to make students aware of local opportunities both educationally and career wise and it is such a pleasure to expand the students’ horizons.
Katrina Sacco ( Principal) Reports:
  • Basketball season is off to a great start. The boys and girls teams will participate in the tournament at Clarkdale this weekend.
  • The 21
    st Century Friday enrichment program will be going to Phoenix to see the Nutcracker on December 15
    th. We are excited that our students will have an opportunity to see this professional ballet production
  • Mrs. Goepfrich’s first grade class has been focused on college and career readiness. They had a career day where parents presented to the class to share about their careers. It is wonderful to see students developing a sense of understanding about the possibilities for their futures.
  • Mrs. Quintana’s third grade class has taken a story from their classwork and turned it into a play. Each student is working hard to memorize lines and participate. This extension of learning exemplifies a an enriching experience where students can work on listening and speaking skills while simultaneously learning about story elements and other Arizona state standards.
  • Our Preschool through fifth grade classes are all practicing for the upcoming Winter Concert on December 20
    th. We are looking forward to the performance and hope than many families will join us.
  • Allie Wheeler and Katrina Sacco attended the annual Mega Conference in Goodyear. This conference gives information from the state, and identifies best practices. This year the conference was focused on helping schools to provide enrichment opportunities to students with an emphasis on art and music education.

The Superintendent and Business Services- Karin Ward reports:

Lyndel Kelley & Diana Iverson with donated turkeys
  • The Saturday Food Bank staff distributed turkeys that were purchased from funds from the Lake Montezuma Women Civic Club and a fundraiser by the Lutheran Church in Sedona.
  • The teaching staff will receive additional funds this month from the Classroom Site Fund voted on the voters of Arizona in 2000. We have a great teaching staff and it is great to be able to provide additional money to their salaries!
  • Mrs. Dones is working on coordinating Christmas gifts for families who have requested assistance.  Several people in the community have stepped up to adopt families.  This year 99 students will receive gifts. This time of year, that support to our children is heartwarming.
  • We are appreciative   of the community for the continued support to our school and children. We hope people remember Beaver Creek School during TAX CREDIT Season!

  • Our students also honored veterans and developed a deeper understanding of the sacrifices made by others who ensure safety and security to all U.S. citizens.
  • Mrs. Guth was honored in the Bugle as a remarkable teacher. She is a wonderful asset to our school, and this recognition was a great tribute to her work.
  • Mrs. Cowan, Mrs. Martinez, Mrs. Wheeler, Mr. Worden and myself met with Pastor Ken Miller to discuss how they can support our school. They are working with us to bring more supplies and books to our classrooms, and we are very grateful!
  • Our November staff training focused on the effective use of the data we receive from NWEA’s MAP Growth assessment.
  • We learned how to use it to make meaningful improvements in our grouping and instruction.
  • Our new instructional media program, Moby Max, is gaining in popularity around campus and it is helping teachers differentiate instruction to meet the diverse needs of all students.
  • Our crew welcomes Mrs. Laura Bleak as a new fifth grade paraprofessional. She comes to us with a great passion for improving the lives of children and we are delighted to have her.
  • The American Legion donated new flags for our campus, and John Maddox spoke to our students about the symbolism and importance of the flags.
  • This was a great way to lead into our Veterans Day education.
From Margee Cowan, College & Career Readiness:
  • The field trip to the Junior Achievement Center in Tempe was once again a success for the 7th graders in Biztown.
  • This is truly life-changing as students learn how to maneuver through life in the simulation given to them.
From Allie Wheeler, Athletics, Art and the 21st Century Learning Program
  • Our volleyball team finished the season first in the league and took second at the league tournament.
  • This allowed them to go to small school state volleyball tournament, where they placed 4th against the best small schools in northern Arizona.
  • This is the first time for Beaver Creek since 2004. Shelly Warfield was awarded first-team all-tournament and Makela Martinez was awarded second-team all-tournament at the small state tournament.
  • The 21st Century Tutoring has begun, we are serving about 40 students during this time.
  • Our focus is on math and reading instructional interventions.

  • Patricia Garitson the service manager has a great staff focused on feeding students well-balanced meals.
  • Diana Iverson, and her crew balances a spotless campus (the Yavapai Health department raves about it at the annual inspection each year), and transporting students safely on the buses to and from school and on trips.
  • Katrina Sacco and her school team work to make sure each student has a quality education that meets his or her own needs.
  • The staff uses data to drive teaching and learning decisions.
  • The office staff under the direction of Sharon Brooks continues to take care of everything from band aids to payroll.

December Happenings 12/1/2017

Dear Neighbors

Starting on Saturday (tomorrow) highs are dropping to the upper 60’s and then the 50’s with a possibility of a few sprinkles in the days to come.  Meanwhile, there are still leaves left to fall from our trees despite what seems like a downpour of them.  Jim Guerrieri, the Rollins Park maintainer, raked up 25 bags of leaves in the Lake Montezuma Village Square on Thursday.  Fall is so beautiful!!  And messy!!
Christmas House is open this year in the area vacated by Beaver Creek Liquors thanks to the generosity of Beaver Creek Gasmart.  On Saturday our local students are having a bake sale there to help raise more funds for the project.  So far Kiwanis has adopted 22 families with 56 kids.  Donations of Christmas items to be sold to raise funds are still being accepted at Kiwanis Clothes Closet and at the Christmas House itself.
This Saturday volunteers are meeting at 9 AM at the Forestglen Trail Head to continue work on the Wickiup Mesa Trails.  In the afternoon starting at 2:30 PM, a local author’s fair is being held at the Beaver Creek Library.  Don’t miss the chance to meet our talented neighbors, enjoy refreshments and see the artwork display in the library.  On Sunday evening is the anticipated Hanging of the Greens at Beaver Creek Baptist Church.
The following Saturday brings us the monthly food bank at Beaver Creek School and Santa photos taken at Candy’s Creekside Cottage in McGuireville.  In the evening everyone is invited to the Holiday Pot Luck at the Beaver Creek Adult Center where the Angel Tree is up and the decorating continues.  The Center is also giving 5 food boxes to needy families.  On Sunday, Grace Community Lutheran Church is hosting a Cantata.
Later in the month, Dump the Drugs is scheduled at the Beaver Creek Adult Center and the Mobile On-Site Mammography van will be at Beaver Creek School.  Continuing each Saturday in Camp Verde is the Winter Farmer’s Market.
Thinking about going for a walk,

Beaver Creek eNews 11/18/2017

Dear Neighbors
 
We’re looking at another beautiful week in Beaver Creek.  The sunny highs are expected to be in the upper 60’s and lower 70’s and cold enough for a little heat at night.  Skinks and tortoises are hibernating and the scorpions are coming inside.  (A black light hunt for those mean insects is a particularly good idea this time of year.)
This is a wonderful weekend to be active.  Free food including lots of cantaloupes is available in the early AM today at Beaver Creek School.  The Saturday hike will be led by Stan Mish, the president of the Beaver Creek Trails Coalition.  If you have any questions about the construction of the Wickiup Mesa Trails, don’t miss this particular hike.
Since November is Native American Heritage month, several special programs are scheduled at Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot.  Please take a look at the National Park Service flyer below.  The bird walk at Montezuma Well is also today.  Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments will close at 3 PM on November 23, Thanksgiving Day.  This includes all three units-Montezuma Castle and Montezuma Well in Rimrock, and Tuzigoot in Clarkdale.  All units will resume normal operating hours on November 24, 8 AM to 5 PM.
Later this month, everyone is invited to a free Thanksgiving Dinner from 2 to 4 PM at Grace Community Lutheran Church.  Another trail hike is scheduled and the Kiwanis Christmas House opens at the Beaver Creek Gasmart on the 30th.
Looking ahead in December, there will be a Local Author Fair at the Beaver Creek Public Library and mobile on-site mammography at Beaver Creek School.  A special pot luck and Dump the Drugs are scheduled in the Beaver Creek Adult Center.
Wishing all a happy start to the Thanksgiving Holiday,
. . . . . the calendar crew
