Beaumont Blast 4/3/16

FATHER-DAUGHTER DANCE - APRIL 9, SAT., 6:00PM
Beaumont's 13th annual Father-Daughter Dance is on Saturday, April 9, from 6:00 - 8:30pm. It's a memorable night for girls to invite their special dates (fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or brothers) for an evening of dancing, being with friends and savoring yummy treats. If you did not RSVP and pay in advance, tickets will be available at the door. We need volunteers to decorate, donate food (including leftover Easter candy), and help during the dance, so please sign up on http://vols.pt/vVFVAb. For questions, contact Lesley Dente.
TESD'S WELLNESS POLICY (FOOD ALLERGIES)
In regards to food allergies, a letter from Principal Dr. Demming was sent home last week. For more detailed information, please read TESD's updated document created by the Wellness Committee. Highlights include:
• NO food is allowed to be brought to Elementary schools in recognition of birthdays, holidays, or celebrations
• Students may still bring in an individual breakfast, lunch and snack that should NOT be shared
• Staff members should NOT give out food to students (including lollipops, treats, etc).

HSA NEEDS VOLUNTEERS
The HSA is looking for more volunteers to chair some of our HSA-sponsored events and activities. Please consider getting more involved and we can team you up with a friend! Please contact Courtney O'Brien or Ann McCarthy if you are interested in helping us. Thank you.

FIRST GRADE: PUBLISHED BOOKS, NEED SIGNED RELEASE FORMS BY APRIL 6, WED.
If you have a First Grader and would like to purchase additional copies of your child’s "All About Me" book, you can pre-order them directly from Student Treasures. They make great memorable gifts. There is no obligation to purchase an extra book, but we need to make sure that each child's parent/guardian signs and returns the Release Form to the student's teacher by April 6. Mark your calendars for the Author's Tea on Thursday, June 9, at 9:15am, when the children will present their books to parents/family. For questions on book orders, contact Claudette McCarron.

SPRING PLANT SALE - ORDERS DUE BY APRIL 6, WED.
The simplest way to plan and accentuate your home garden is to place an order at Beaumont's annual Spring Plant Sale, sponsored by the HSA. There are dozens of flowers and plants to choose from at a discounted price. Please submit the Order Form by Wednesday, April 6, but do NOT send in your money. Cash and checks payable to BES HSA can be given when you pick up your plant order on Thursday, May 5, from 2:30 - 4:30pm. There will also be a Children's Plant Sale of $2.00 per plant on Friday, May 6. For questions, contact Kristen Baker, Colleen Mahoney and Kathy Moynagh.

T&E CARE IS LOOKING FOR KIDS CLOTHES -
COLLECTION UNTIL APRIL 8, FRI.

T&E Care is looking for donations of new or gently used clothing for infants through teens for its upcoming Kids’ Clothing Grab Bag. There will be a collection box at Beaumont from March 31 - April 8. Clothing for all seasons, plus good quality shoes, boots, coats, belts, or other accessories will be accepted. There will be a teen girls Pop-up Shop again this year – so we’ll need lots of teen girls clothes to help make this special! The Kids' Clothing Grab Bag will take place on April 15 and 16 at St. Matthew's United Methodist Church. This fundraiser for T&E Care is a great chance for everyone to restock your kids’ closets with great quality clothes. A suggested donation of $10/bag is appreciated. For questions, contact clothes@tecare.org. For more information, visit T&E Care's website. Groups or individuals looking for community service hours? Help sort the T&E Care grab bag donations. What a great way to help your community! If interested, contact Autumn O'Reilly.

COUNTDOWN TO EARTH DAY - APRIL 22, FRI.
The Community Service Committee invites you to participate in our Countdown to Earth Day celebration. Beginning Wednesday, March 30 and ending on Earth Day, Friday, April 22, we will be asking students and staff to participate in activities that help our planet. This may include bringing in waste to be Terracycled, turning off the water when they brush their teeth, turning off a light when they leave a room, etc. Each time a child participates in an earth-saving activity, they can write down what they did on a blue or green colored square and attach it to our "Earth" that will be in the lobby. Also, we will begin recycling Crayola markers; the collection bin will be next to the Oral Care Waste Terracycling bin by the sign-in desk. On Earth Day, we hope to have filled our "Earth" with color and present how much we have Terracycled over the course of the year. For questions, contact Valerie Cheng, Jen Bacani, Becky Pitofsky, and Jean Allen.

WALKING CLUB DURING RECESS - VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Spring is in the air and it's time to get some exercise. Walking Club begins on Tuesday, May 3, and ends on June 9. We need volunteers to help check students' cards on Tuesdays and Thursdays during lunchtime recess. It is simple, easy and requires little time. Most of all, you get to see your children during the school day. Sign up to volunteer on Volunteer Spot. For questions, contact Bobbi Foster or Courtney Dunkle.
 
MOTHER-SON BASEBALL GAME - MAY 22, SUN.
Take Me Out to the Ball Game. Save the date for the upcoming Mother-Son Event. Mothers and their sons will feast on hot dogs, pretzels and other goodies while watching the Reading Fightin’ Phils take on the Trenton Thunder. The baseball game is on May 22, 2016 (buffet is at 1:00pm and game starts at 2:05pm). Don’t strike out on this event and put the date on your calendar for a fun afternoon! For questions, contact Angie Polizzi.

UPDATE ON VOLUNTEER CLEARANCES
For the 2016 - 2017 school year, only volunteers with regular and repeated contact with students who are responsible for the care, supervision, guidance or control of children will need clearances. Visit TESD's website for security clearance updates which includes a list of volunteer positions that require clearances.

T/E’S GOT TALENT
Bravo to our teachers and staff who participated in T/E's Got Talent last week and represented Beaumont by singing "Best Day of My Life" with other elementary schools, and also dancing to "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" in glow in the dark suits. Proceeds benefit ARCH and support future community programs. Thank you to BES families who attended and showed your school spirit.
