Friday Letter - November 1, 2019

Dear Families,


School will be closed for students on Monday, November 4. We will hold parent conferences from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Advisors have been reaching out to families of students who have a D or lower in any subject area. At this meeting, families will be updated on why the student has the grade he/she has and make plans for how to improve in upcoming quarters.


The weather is getting colder, so it’s time for scholars to bundle up. In the morning, we will still be on the yard until 8:15 a.m. for scholars who are here early. Students must be in uniform throughout the building. This includes all sweatshirts which must have The Belair-Edison logo.


Tuesday through Friday next week, our students will take their first round of interim assessments. These assessments let us know how scholars are doing towards mastery of grade level standards. Students will take these assessments again in January and in March. Teachers will use data from this assessment to inform instruction and to determine supports needed for students to be successful.


On Wednesday, November 13th the Heart Market will come to our school! Heart Markets are fun, high-energy, interactive events with nutrition education, music, and meal preparation demonstrations to teach children how to turn wholesome foods into something tasty that their whole family will enjoy. Students will have a chance to shop at the market and enjoy the experience.  Parents are welcome to come but only students are allowed to shop.  The event takes place at 5:00PM! If you need more information, reach out to Coach Johnson at 410-485-2102.


The Belair-Edison School is excited to welcome back Ms. Mia Beuattah! Ms. Mia is entering her 18th year in education. She began as a language arts teacher and is thrilled to return to The Belair-Edison School as a school counselor. "When I came to middle school, I looked at the students in my class. Out of the fourteen boys I had in my room, nine of them had a mental health crisis every day. I knew that I did not have the tools in my toolbox to help them. That was when I decided to become a school counselor. I wanted to help kids - especially Afya/BE-Brendan kids."  Welcome Ms. Mia!  


The Korean after school club had lunch at a Korean restaurant on Saturday. Special thanks to Mr. Wood for organizing this amazing experience.
