China Connection News
I would like to thank the members of the School Board, administration, faculty, staff and entire Beecher Road School community for helping to make last week's visit by the two principals from China, Mr. Wong and Mr. Li, a positive experience. The feedback from the principals about our educational system and the reception they received, both inside and outside of school, was extremely positive. Because of the strong ties that have been built in such a short time with our colleagues from China, we have established a strong relationship with two additional schools in China. Mrs. Prisco and I discussed with our visitors the opportunity for a future exchange of administrators, staff and possibly students and parents. There is the possibility of two (2) teachers from our new brother schools coming for a 2-3 week residency at BRS in May. If this were to happen, it would constitute another step forward in support of our district goal of developing a generation of good local and global citizens. The children of Beecher Road School and our partner schools in China will be the real beneficiaries of our efforts.
