Welcome to another exciting and wonderful school year. My name is Blake Lipe. I thought you may want to know a little bit about me, so here we go. This is my 7th year of teaching here at Beckemeyer Elementary School. I graduated from Eastern Illinois University, in Charleston, with a degree in Elementary Education and a focus in Mathematics. I have several hobbies; however anything in the outdoors is probably my favorite (if you see my room you will know what I am talking about).
In preparation for an incredible experience in this room, I ask parents to read and review the student handbook with their children so everyone understands the policies of this room and the school as a whole. Please encourage your students to do their best and aid them in anyway possible as we continue on through this journey called 4th grade.
Please feel free to contact me with any clarifications or concerns you may have with your child and I assure you I will do the same. The best way to contact me is simply to email me. Another way to contact me is to call the school and leave me a message at extension #104.
I am very excited to be working with you and your child towards a school year full of promise, education, and fun!!!
