The Beechwood School Foundation held a festive evening at the Richard Nixon Library on February 24th. The event brought together parents, friends and supporters of Beechwood Elementary School, for a Dinner Auction. Said Kate Strauss, the Foundation’s President, “The night is about celebrating – celebrating our successes and looking ahead to the next chapter, the next dreams for our students.”
The evening also included recognition of the Cotsen Foundation’s contributions to Beechwood through the school’s participation in the ART of TEACHING. Beechwood Principal Julie Graham noted, “We are proud to be a Cotsen School, and grateful to the Cotsen Foundation for the plethora of resources and support. Through this model, Beechwood continues to provide students with a world class education.”
The ART of TEACHING’s Executive Director, Jerry Harris, was named the event’s Honorary Chair, and was in attendance at the affair. Commenting on the night Harris said, “It is always rewarding to see the school, parents and broader community come together in support of educating children well. Lloyd Cotsen has a passion that all children experience the magic and power of instructional excellence in their classrooms, and the Foundation is honored to work along with the Beechwood staff parents and community, and the Fullerton District to make Mr. Cotsen’s dream come true.
