Superintendent's Corner

Dear Beverly Parents and Families,

Welcome to the Beverly Public Schools website. 
Good Afternoon Beverly School Community,

We are approaching the finish line for the 2023-2024 school year!  Congratulations to all of you and my best wishes for all our staff, students and families celebrating our last week of school in the coming days!  The past few weeks, I have been sharing amazing stories of our end of year celebrations in our school community. Our students have had the opportunity to demonstrate their remarkable growth over the year and teachers have joined in celebration of their successes!  This past Wednesday evening, our principals presented their school's accomplishments to the School Committee as they wrap up another school year and begin the process of looking ahead with new goals and preparations for the coming year.  It was amazing to watch as they found a way to encapsulate so many of the accomplishments of their staff and students in just a few slides! You can view the presentation here and for those interested, you can watch the Curriculum, Instruction, and Student Life meeting on Bev Cam!  It will certainly provide a glimpse into the life of our students at each level! 

With summer around the corner, I want to share my hope that you and your family enjoy time with family and friends. Summer also brings with it new opportunities for students to explore their passions and interests. I encourage all of our students to continue their journey of learning outside of the classroom.  Please join us in our efforts to ensure that all our students find time this summer to read, read, read!  At each level, we have created a summer reading program designed to foster a love of reading and to keep our students' minds active and engaged and to keep up on the reading skills they have worked so hard on throughout the year!  

We have created a diverse list of books that will transport you to new worlds, introduce you to new characters, and present our students with ideas that spark curiosity and adventure.  Attached is a link to information about our programs at high school, middle school and elementary school.  Included in the information are the book lists for middle and high school and title suggestions for our elementary students.  Our students have all attended book talks with their classrooms and should be familiar with the requirements of the reading program. For our older, independent readers, please consider reading some of the offerings alongside your child - it is a great opportunity to share your love of reading with them and to open up topics for new discussions.  And of course, for our younger readers, there is nothing better than reading aloud and enjoying a great book together!

I also encourage you to check out our public library with your child.  We continue to partner with the Beverly Public Library to ensure access to our summer reading books.  In addition to the reading program, the Beverly Library offers passes for free admission to local museums and activities throughout the summer for all our families to enjoy! 

Wishing you an enjoyable and productive summer! 

Warm regards,

Sue Charochak, Ed.D.
