Kepner Beacon Community,
“God's dream is that you and I and all of us will realize that we are family, that we are made for togetherness, for goodness, and for compassion.”
Desmond Tutu

The month of January has brought many challenges. The seemingly never ending pandemic, cold harsh weather, and evenings that get dark way too soon. But together as a family we are thriving. This week in community meetings we talked about the value of education and how we can leverage knowledge to reach our dreams. We are heading in the right direction because we are a family. Enjoy your weekend everyone. Back to learning on Monday.

Thank you for all of your donations for our food pantry this week! It is overwhelming to see our school community show up for one another in this way. Families in need are able to take whole bags of food home, and hungry students will always be offered a granola bar so they can stay focused in class! Your generosity makes this resource possible, thank you.

Families - we need your help. Please ensure that your student has only one Chromebook and one charger. These were checked out to students at the beginning of the year. Also make sure these items are in good working order without damage to the keyboard, screen etc. If your student needs assistance with his/her/their Chromebook for any reason, a "Helpdesk" ticket at the top of the Moodle page should be completed. If your student has more than one Chromebook or power cord, please return the extra to our tech support (GB - Mr Peek, KB - Mr Lilo). We are trying to avoid confusion or unexpected charges for these items at the end of the school year, and would like your help now to avoid unpleasant surprises. Thank you.

8th Grade Kepner Beacon students will participate in NAEP on March 1st. NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects. NAEP is different from our state assessments because it is a common measure of achievement across the country. The assessment is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the U.S. Department of Education. The results are released as The Nation’s Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.  This brochure contains more information. Not all 8th graders take the assessment. Students are randomly selected. You will receive a letter IF your 8th grader was selected to take the assessment.

Both the Boys and Girls Basketball teams were victorious in their games against Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy this week. You can watch a replay of the games on our Facebook page!
It’s fundraising season! We are gearing up and excited for our annual Enriching Lives fundraising event to be held April 11 - April 22. Save the date for a special celebration event on April 21, 2022 from 6:00 - 8:00pm! We had previously announced this event would be held at the Grant Humphreys Mansion and have since decided to seek a more cost friendly venue so that funds donated can go directly to providing enriching learning opportunities for our students. There will be refreshments, student artwork and performances, a live auction, and more! You won’t want to miss this event.
