School Spirit & Pride Days

The last Tuesday of every month is a special day for our school community. It’s our SCHOOL SPIRIT & PRIDE DAY! On these days, students and staff (and visitors!) are invited to wear green and white or their favorite Beech Hill School spirit wear to show their school pride. On each SCHOOL SPIRIT & PRIDE DAY, our Student Council leads an afternoon assembly to promote an event, emphasize a message, recognize sports teams and/or appreciate the work of an individual or group. During this time, they also celebrate birthdays of the month and hold a “green card” prize drawing. Green cards are awarded to individual students who display respect, responsibility, caring, and honesty throughout the school year. Show your school pride by wearing green and white and/or Beech Hill gear every last Tuesday of the month!
