Hello parents! 

 

It is with pleasure that I welcome you and your child to my class.  We can all look forward to a very exciting school year. I am Mrs. Candice Long, a first grade teacher here at Beecher Hills Elementary.  I have been teaching with Atlanta Public Schools for 21 years and at Beecher for twelve of those years.  I have taught first and second grades my whole teaching career.  I am really looking forward to having a great year of learning with your children!!!  I want to thank you in advance for your support and cooperation.  If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at chlong@atlanta.k12.ga.us.                                                                                             In order to provide my students with the excellent educational climate they deserve, we have developed the following Essential Agreements that will be in effect throughout the school year.

  • Follow directions quickly
  • Raise your hand for permission to speak
  • Raise your hand for permission to leave your seat
  • Make smart choices!
  • and
  • Keep your dear teacher happy!
Beecher has also developed a system for collecting "Bee" Points that is reinforced daily in the classroom and rewarded on Fridays.  Your child can earn a  "Bee" Point daily by :1. Being present and on-time, 2. Completing homework and returning important forms, 3. Being focused and on-task, 4. Respectful behavior, and 5. Wearing uniforms.  Any student who has earned at least 23 out of 25 points by the end of the week will be rewarded.
 
Sincerely,
Candice Long
