|PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCE SCHEDULING
IS ONLINE - REGISTER FROM FEBRUARY 8 - 21
Following a pilot at the elementary level this past fall, all five T/E elementary schools will now provide online scheduling for parent-teacher conferences this February (24 - 26). On February 3, a personalized letter was mailed to each parent with an individual username and password. Parents will sign up for conferences within the provided timeslots on the online form. The online system opens on Monday, February 8 and closes on Sunday, February 21. View sample letter and an example of the online form.
The main office will be able to assist you with any questions that you have and will help anyone who does not have internet access. There are directions for scheduling siblings. Please also know that conferences continue to be 20 minutes with 5 minutes added for transition time. Thank you for your support of the new system, and we hope the online features will add convenience to this process.

BEAR GEAR ORDERS UPDATE

We will be meeting with the vendor over the next few weeks to work out all of the growing pains and will host a spring bear gear sale soon. We expect these issues to be resolved and a much smoother sale in the spring. Thank you to all of our supporters and for your patience with the Fall/Winter sale. Please contact Cara Weichecki
or Courtney O’Brien
with any questions. Thank you. Go Bears!
, Beaumont students have an opportunity to show just how much love they can spread through good deeds, acts of kindness and service. The school lobby will boast the "Philly Love Wall
", where students can put up hearts with their names and good deeds over the course of the month
. As parents, we can show some Philly Love by sending in any extra unopened school supplies
you may have in the house, which will be donated to Philadelphia schools. Thank you for your donations.
