After School Enrichments are LIVE for next semester!

Please sign up and spread the word. There are some new classes (like Mad Science, Middle School Guitar and early grade French) and old favorites (teachers create new lessons, so kids can enjoy taking classes again!)  This program is a way to build community, expand kids' interests and support working parents after school. The PTA provides partial scholarships: Just let the school counselor or after-school teacher know and they will coordinate it. Families will remain anonymous to the PTA.
After-school programs are provided to families as a resource and are not endorsed or sponsored by Beverly Cleary School or the PTA.

The BCS Theatre program is in the planning stages of it's Spring production of Clue!  If you would like to lend a hand, please contact Josh Tabshy,

Spirit Week is next week!
