EARTH DAY - APRIL 22, FRI.
Earth day is this Friday and we still need to color our Earth! Here are some great earth-saving tips from some of our Beaumont students: "I take short showers to save water; When I go to the grocery store with my mom we bring our own bags; I reuse by using the back of paper; and I play outside on my basketball hoop instead of the iPad." Encourage your child to share their own eco-friendly tips so we can fill the rest of our "earth" with color! For questions, contact Valerie Cheng, Jen Bacani, Becky Pitofsky, and Jean Allen.

WHAT I WANT TO BE WHEN I GROW UP DAY -
