BES 4TH GRADERS VISIT BELL AVENUE ELEMENTARY
Throughout the year, Beaumont 4th Graders have been writing to their pen pals at Bell Avenue Elementary in Yeadon, PA. Beaumont has had an enduring 18-year relationship with the school since 1998. This week, the children had a chance to meet in person and get to know each other better for a fun-filled day of activities at Bell Avenue Elementary. The Bell Avenue students will reciprocate and visit Beaumont at the end of May. Thank you to 4th Grade Teachers, Mrs. Bernadette Kearns, Mr. Pete Ricci, Mrs. Alex Thompson, and Mrs. Kristin Weinrich, as well as HSA parents, Tory Stagnaro and Autumn O'Reilly, for coordinating all the activities and events. Thank you to 4th Grade parents who volunteered and help make the activities run smoothly. View thank you email from Bell Avenue.
