Beaumont Blast 10/25/15


The Fall Book Fair is this week. This year’s theme is Monsters, and we’re planning fun events all week long in the Large Group Room. The Book Fair is a great experience for BES students and a fundraiser for HSA-sponsored projects and events. We need several volunteers to help the Book Fair run smoothly during class visits, Family Night and clean-up, so please help out if you can. To volunteer, visit VolunteerSpot. Click here for the Teacher’s Class Visit Schedule and consider volunteering while your child visits.

The Parent Social is on and only 3 weeks away so keep sending in those RSVP cards! It’s going to be a great night of fun, food and friends, while raising funds that will make a difference in our children’s education. In addition to taking home some of our fabulous Silent Auction items (including Eagles vs. Dolphins Tickets on November 15), you will have the opportunity to donate directly to the Beaumont Teachers’ Wish Lists, which is mostly about increasing the use of technology in our classrooms, including iPads and converters for projecting iPad lessons on the classroom SMART Boards and more. 

The proceeds raised by the Silent Auction and Wine Raffle will also be used towards purchasing the Teachers' Wish List items. This year’s Wine Raffle is another fantastic assortment of wine and champagne, including another bottle of Opus One! You do not have to be present to win the Wine Raffle. If you can’t attend the event, raffle tickets are a fantastic way to make a difference in your child’s classroom. We Really Hope you can make it. We promise a great time! Questions? Contact Jessica Weinberg,

The Halloween Parade for Grades 1 - 4 and PM Kindergarten is at 1:45pm on Friday, October 30. The parade will begin at the main front entrance, continue along the car line, and into the carpool circle doors. Please do not park your cars in the car pool circle so we can have enough room for all parents to see the parade. There is extra parking available across the street at Hilltop Park. Please be aware that any parent visiting the parade or parties must be immediately recognizable in accordance with our district safety guidelines. Any parent choosing to wear a costume should not wear any part of the costume that covers the face. Classroom parties for parents volunteering (only) are from 2:00 - 3:00pm. The AM Kindergarten parade will begin at 9:30am. They will parade through the hallways of the school and in the car pool circle and their party will begin immediately following the parade. For costume guidelines, please view the Halloween Flyer.

Find Box Tops on hundreds of products you know and love which are worth 10 cents each and will be donated directly to BES. They add up quickly. Cut them off participating products including Cheerios, Betty Crocker, Ziploc, Scott Paper, Kleenex, and Pillsbury. No need to count them, we will do that for you. Please have your child bring it to school by Thursday, October 29.

BES will be showing the animated movie Home, on Monday, November 2, from 6:00 - 7:30pm, sponsored by Beaumont Staff Cares, a group created by BES teachers and staff. It's on a Monday night, but there is no school the next day since it is a Staff In Service Day. Fill out the Registration Form and sign up by Friday, October 30. Please note that the Registration Form that was sent home has an incorrect date at the bottom of the sheet. It should be Monday, November 2nd. The HSA will also be collecting donations of cleaning solutions for Tredyffrin & Easttown Care, a wonderful organization providing financial and other other material assistance to those in need in our area. Thank you for contributing.

Cello Fury will be performing at Valley Forge Middle School on Friday, November 13 at 7:00pm. It is a cello rock powerhouse featuring three cellists and a drummer. Cello Fury's original music combines the emotive and symphonic sounds of the cello with driving rock beats to create a cinematic, progressive rock sound. To learn more, view flyer or visit Cello Fury's website.

Congratulations to Ann McCarthy (HSA Vice President) and husband, Scott, on the birth of Brennan Cornelius McCarthy last week. Brennan is welcomed by his older siblings, Conor (2nd Grade) and Molly (Kindergarten).

The HSA's Community Service Committee is pleased to announce the launch of two Terracycling collection programs.  Terracycle is a company that collects waste that would otherwise end up in landfills, and instead recycles or "upcycles" it into new products like lunch bags, backpacks, and scrapbooks (for more information, go to With each qualifying shipment we send in, Beaumont can earn Terracycling points to redeem on their website. Beaumont is collecting two specific waste streams: 1. Juice Pouches (any brand) 2. Oral Care Waste (any brand) including: empty toothpaste tubes, toothbrushes, toothbrush packaging, toothpaste boxes, floss boxes (Note: floss picks are NOT accepted). Please encourage your child to "Terracycle" their empty juice pouches (and straws) at lunch by placing them in the collection box in the cafeteria instead of the garbage can, and send in your oral care waste for the collection bin in the lobby. The more we collect, the more we help our planet and Beaumont.
