There are many ways for parents and family members to be involved at Beech Street School. Whether attending monthly Parent-Teacher Group meetings, visiting the Family Resource Center, or spending some time volunteering, families are an important part of the Beech Street School community. Research tells us that successful students have families who are actively involved in their education.

The Parent-Teacher Group meets monthly, usually the second Wednesday of each month at 8:45am. Meetings offer families information about all that is happening at the school and the PTG plans and participates in a number of fun, educational events for families throughout the school year.

Volunteer opportunities include weekly popcorn, photocopying, laminating, classroom support and special projects. Additionally, Beech offers a number of special events that invite parents in to visit classrooms, observe lessons, and learn ways to support learning at home. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit the Volunteer Page at Manchester District Website.



Hay muchas maneras para que los padres y los miembros de la familia participen en Beech Street School. Ya sea que asistan a las reuniones mensuales del Grupo de Padres y Maestros, visiten el Centro de Recursos Familiares o pasen un tiempo como voluntarios, las familias son una parte importante de la comunidad de Beech Street School. La investigación nos dice que los estudiantes exitosos tienen familias que participan activamente en su educación.

El grupo de padres y maestros se reúne mensualmente, generalmente el segundo miércoles de cada mes a las 8:45 a.m. Las reuniones ofrecen a las familias información sobre todo lo que está sucediendo en la escuela y los planes de PTG y participan en una serie de eventos divertidos y educativos para las familias durante todo el año escolar.

Las oportunidades de voluntariado incluyen palomitas de maíz semanales, fotocopias, laminación, apoyo en el aula y proyectos especiales. Además, Beech ofrece una serie de eventos especiales que invitan a los padres a visitar las aulas, observar lecciones y aprender formas de apoyar el aprendizaje en el hogar. Si está interesado en ser voluntario, visite la página de voluntarios en el sitio web del distrito de Manchester.

Kuna njia nyingi kwa wazazi na familia kuhusika katika Beech Street School. Ikiwa ni kuhudhuria mikutano ya Kikundi cha Wazazi na Mwalimu, kutembelea Kituo cha Rasilimali za Familia, au kutumia wakati fulani kujitolea, familia ni sehemu muhimu ya Jumuiya ya Shule ya Beech Street. Utafiti unatuambia kuwa wanafunzi waliofaulu wana familia ambazo zinajihusisha kikamilifu na masomo yao.

Kundi la Wazazi-Mwalimu hukutana kila mwezi, kawaida Jumatano ya pili ya kila mwezi saa 8:45 asubuhi. Mikutano inapea familia habari juu ya yote yanayotokea katika shule hiyo na mipango ya PTG na inashiriki katika hafla kadhaa za kufurahisha, za masomo kwa familia kwa mwaka mzima wa shule.


Fursa za kujitolea ni pamoja na popcorn za kila wiki, upigaji picha, kuomboleza, msaada wa darasa na miradi maalum. Kwa kuongezea, Beech hutoa matukio kadhaa maalum ambayo huwaalika wazazi kutembelea madarasa, kuchunguza masomo, na kujifunza njia za kusaidia kujifunza nyumbani. Ikiwa una nia ya kujitolea, tafadhali tembelea Ukurasa wa Kujitolea kwenye Wavuti ya Wilaya ya Manchester.
