Beechwood School is accepting donations through its website. Any amount helps!

This original Palo Alto Online story is only partially accurate. Only one building was destroyed in the fire. This building housed Beechwood's 3rd grade classroom, administrative office, faculty lounge, special needs office and additional small group workspaces. It also housed the storage closet for Beechwood's 3rd grade teacher. All of her supplies and curriculum have been destroyed.
