Conferences can be scheduled online using Home Access Center (https://hac.tesd.net/).  While HAC remains open throughout the school year, online conference scheduling will only be available from Friday, February 10th (10:00AM) through Friday, February 17th (11:59PM).  Please call the school’s main office if there are no available conference times for the teacher that you prefer to meet with or if you would like to make any changes after the scheduling window closes.

TESD ENCOURAGES RESIDENT INVOLVEMENT IN OPPOSING PROPERTY TAX ELIMINATION
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.

BEAUMONT AND THE HSA NEED HELP!

Please contact Courtney O'Brien with any questions about the openings below.

1. Creative Volunteers Needed -
We are looking for one volunteer from each grade. This volunteer will work with individual classes in each grade to create a themed art project that will be auctioned off at the Parent Social on February 3.  This should only take one afternoon of your time to go into the classrooms to "paint" your canvas which we will supply. If you are interested, please contact Erin Muhly or Ann McCarthy.

2. Book Fair - We need two additional book fair chairs for the 2017-2018 school year. Please consider joining this fun group to lead the two 📚 book fairs sponsored by the HSA. Both Mary Hashemi and Renee DelViscio will be leaving Beaumont at the end of the school year and will help with the transition. 

3. Cultural Arts - For the 2017-2018 school year, we need two volunteers to work together to plan all school assemblies. 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.

4. Pizza Bingo - We need two or more chairs to lead Pizza Bingo for the 2017-2018 school year.  This is a popular event that is fun for all involved.  Current chairs: Katie Galef, Min Lubiniecki, and Angie Polizzi.
