Movie Night, Thursday April 10 for Beethoven students:  We will be showing a really cold, recently released, PG movie (for more details call the school). In the Beethoven Auditorium for grades K1-2nd grade.  5:30-7:30pm.  Pizza and snacks will be provided. Donations of mini water bottles are also needed. A flyer went home in students’ folders to RSVP.

Book Exchange for Beethoven Students: Starting immediately, you can send in your books for donation and Parent Council will fill the book exchange library bookshelves located on the stage in the gym.  There will be a box in the main office, as well as the Parent Room to collect the books. Parents can browse the shelves and borrow books too.  We ask only that once you finish with a book you return it for someone else to enjoy.
