New BES Website Set to Launch on Tuesday, January 31st!

We are thrilled to share with our families and friends that we will be launching a redesigned website on Tuesday, January 31st! For the last four months, we have been working with C7 Creative, an outstanding web design company in Jacksonville Beach, to design a new look and improve navigation and functionality. A new BES Blog will give you the opportunity to read articles and research from our faculty and staff about various educational subjects and trends. Ms. Melody Harding, PreK4 teacher, will begin with an article about "Giftedness: Finding the Joy and Uniqueness in Every Child."

The new site will also contain the "Portrait of a BES Graduate," a list of characterists which we hope will be embodied in every student who graduates from our school. The site will also boast an improved calendar of events, an easier to read interface for mobile devices, and intuitive forms for requesting information and making pledges to the school's annual giving campaign.

As always, we hope you will stay up-to-date on current happenings, events, and special moments in the classroom by following Beaches Episcopal School on social media and video/photo websites. Here are the links for you to add as bookmarks for your browsers or home screens if you haven't already. 


We hope these changes will make information more accessible and help you stay connected with your child's educational experience at Beaches Episcopal School!

BES "Readers are Leaders" Open House/Art's Night on Wednesday, January 25th!

The BES Open House and Art’s Night will take place on Wednesday, January 25th from 6:00-7:30 p.m. In line with the school's "Readers Are Leaders" theme, each class has been studying a particular author. This evening is a chance for families to tour the school with your students by embarking on a scavenger hunt through all the classrooms. Be sure to stop by Hope Hall where you can visit the movement room and music room for additional activities and the art room/hallway where you can view or purchase your student's framed art on display. We hope to see all of you there!
