Welcome to Beach Elementary!Top of Page

Dear Beach Families,

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!  The weather this summer was just perfect, I hope you had a chance to enjoy some of the sunshine and make some memories together.  I spent my time off going to the zoo, at the beach, and eating lots of ice cream!

This is such an exciting time of year...parents are ready for the littles to get out of the house and back to school and we are so ready to receive them back into our classrooms!  We have already spent weeks preparing for September 4th!

A new school year always brings new opportunities and that is what makes this profession so dynamic!  It is privilege to be an elementary school Principal in Cedar Springs. I have the privilege of working with dedicated, caring, and inspiring staff, parents, and children each day.  Nothing beats that!

We look forward to seeing you at our Open House on August 29 from 5:30-6:30 pm.  The office will be open beginning August 21 from 8:00-3:30, if there are any questions we can answer for you, please do not hesitate to call.  Be sure to also visit us online at for important updates and current information.

Go Redhawks!!

Ms. Tricia Shenefield

Principal, Beach Elementary
