JOIN THE BEAUMONT HSA BOARD FOR 2016 - 2017
Due to several of our board members reaching their maximum years of service in their positions, we are seeking new board members! Nominations are currently being solicited for the following 2015 - 2016 HSA board positions:
• Co-President (new role)
• 1st Vice President (leads Committee Chairs)
• 2nd Vice President (leads Homeroom Parents)
• Vice President of Communications (writes Beaumont Blast)
• Assistant Treasurer
• Secretary
We are planning to change the President's role and make it more of a team approach by having 2 Co-Presidents. If you or someone you know is interested in serving Beaumont in one of these roles in the fall, please contact HSA President,
Courtney O'Brien. Thank you for considering joining and helping our school.

VALENTINE'S DAY PARTIES - THANK YOU TO PARENTS

RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE FUNDRAISER -
FEBRUARY 17, WEDNESDAY, 3:30 - 4:30pm (Gr 3 - 4)

Who knew socks could be SO MUCH FUN? If your child attended the RMH fundraiser last Wednesday, no doubt you have heard all about that fun and joy-filled afternoon. We had 69 students laughing and playing in red and white socks all for a great cause! The HSA wants to give a big shout-out of THANKS to Mrs. Melissa McConaghy (Gym Teacher), Mrs. Sherri Bolger (2nd Grade Teacher) and Miss Tracy Simmington (1st Grade Teacher) for their generous gift of time (and student control). We could not have done it without you! And for those of you who have 3rd and 4th graders, just ask a parent of any K, 1st or 2nd grade student who attended – your kid will want to be there next Wednesday, February 17. And we do have a few spots left to hit our fundraising goal for the families RMH supports. So here is the flyer again. Many, many thanks for everyone's generosity! Note: We will dismiss children at the FRONT of the school.

AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS WILL END AT 4:15PM -
FEBRUARY 17, WEDNESDAY
The Animal Club, Lego Club and Reading Olympics will dismiss earlier at 4:15pm on Wednesday, February 17, in order to ease the traffic flow, since the Ronald McDonald House Fundraiser takes place on the same day. Please pick up Animal Club students at the FRONT of the school. Pick up for Lego Club and Reading Olympics is at the carpool circle. Thank you to parents/guardians for your flexibility and patience with the earlier pick up time. Contact Paula Cardenas (Hodgman) for any questions on the After School Clubs.
