PARENT SOCIAL - Friday, February 3, 7-10p

RSVP:  We hope that you are considering attending our upcoming parent social event. This is a very casual, laid back gathering to get our parent community together. We will be hosting fun raffle prizes, chances to bid on wonderful school experiences for your children, homemade corn holes with special themes, and last but not least, some class level artwork with a special touch from every Beaumont Student. Please get your RSVP's in asap so we know you are coming!
WINE RAFFLE:  If you are interested in donating a bottle or two to the wine raffle, you can arrange to drop off at the homes of Courtney O'Brien and Cara Wiechecki at any time.  The more we collect, the more people can win! 
VOLUNTEERS: We can use your help the day of the event. We are looking for volunteers to setup, sell raffles, check out and clean up. Please contact Ann McCartthy or Courtney O'Brien if you are interested.
We hope to see you on the 3rd :)

At the January 23, 2017 School Board meeting, the Tredyffrin/Easttown School Board adopted a resolution opposing legislation that would eliminate school property taxes. This proposal is currently being considered by state legislators and, if passed, has the potential to leave schools dramatically underfunded by eliminating property taxes and replacing them with increases in personal income tax and sales tax, which are subject to shortfalls during economic downturns. Click here for more detailed information.

It's priceless to look back and see how much your child has grown from Kindergarten to 4th Grade at Beaumont by purchasing a Yearbook each year. This year's Yearbook is the same price at $22.00. For questions on Yearbook orders, contact Magan Pilato. If you would like to submit photos (with 2 or more students smiling) to be considered for Yearbook, contact Claudette McCarron. Please visit the School Office or Library if you would like to see a copy of last year's Yearbook. The Yearbook volunteers are conscientious to ensure that every grade and each child are represented in many of the school and classroom events.
To help the environment and for your convenience,order a Yearbook ONLINE by March 31.

The 2nd Grade Classes celebrated Chinese New Year this week with a visit from Master Hou-Tien Cheng (Paper Cutter), who has been visiting Beaumont for over 10+ years. It's remarkable that Master Cheng does the paper-cutting in free-form, without any prior sketching on the paper. If parents would like to purchase Master Cheng's art work which starts at $5.00, you may email him directly to place an order. Celebrations continued with a Chinese New Year Parade where all the students wore handmade lion masks and walked with their noise makers. View Chinese New Year photos taken by Yearbook volunteers on the BES HSA website.

These people will coordinate schedules, contracts and assembly day details with lead teachers and staff at Beaumont as well as with the assembly providers. Chairs will also attend periodic Delta meetings at Easttown Library. This is a fun and rewarding job that gives chairs an opportunity to bring assemblies into our school and see firsthand the children's enthusiasm and excitement about being exposed to different cultural and art related experiences. Current chairs Alicia Asselta and Lindsey Weber.
