PIZZA BINGO - JANUARY 22, FRIDAY
Let’s Bingo! Join us for Pizza Bingo on Friday, January 22, 2016 (click here for the registration flyer). Our fantastic bingo callers will be Mr. Parrotta (1st session) and Mrs. Capriola (2nd session). Every child is guaranteed one prize! Speaking of prizes, we are collecting new prizes (crafts, sports balls, games, toys) in the collection bin in the front lobby. This is a great way to get rid of any unwanted gifts. We also need parent volunteers for the event and middle school students to check bingo cards. Click http://vols.pt/y9boLX to sign up or contact Angie Polizzi, angie_polizzi@hotmail.com.

P.A.L. PROJECT MEETING FOR 4TH GRADE PARENTS -
JANUARY 15, FRIDAY
4th Grade parents are invited to the Cafeteria on Friday, January 15, from 1:30 - 2:15pm for the P.A.L. Project Kickoff Meeting. Teachers will share details and steps to completing the project, as well as give some tips and helpful hints for students. Parents who have never had a 4th Grader at Beaumont before are especially encouraged to attend.

ORDER YOUR 2015 - 2016 YEARBOOK
It's priceless to look back and see how much your child has grown from Kindergarten to 4th Grade at Beaumont by purchasing a Yearbook each year. This year's Yearbook is the same price at $22.00, but we are also offering several packages and options to choose from including: a Personalized Cover with your child's photo and name, a Zoom Current Events Insert (so you remember what was happening in 2015 - 2016), and Stickys (stickers for decorating). View flyer for more details. If you have questions on Yearbook orders, contact Magan Pilato, maganpilato@yahoo.com.

GIRL SCOUT ORGANIZER NEEDED FOR BEAUMONT
BES is seeking a Girl Scout Organizer to help parents learn what to do to start a troop and place kids in existing troops. Please contact Mary Hashemi (a Beaumont parent), mvhashemi@gmail.com, if you are interested in this volunteer position.

PHILLY LOVE WALL OF GOOD DEEDS AND KINDNESS
In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., from MLK, Jr. Day through Valentine's Day (January 18 - February 14), Beaumont students will have an opportunity to show just how much love they can spread through good deeds, acts of kindness and service. And the best part is, it doesn't require anything but being their kind, loving and generous selves! 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. Teachers will have hearts available for students to write on. So when you "catch them in the act" of kindness at home, please remind them they can add a heart to the Philly Love Wall when they get to school. If you have a chance, pop in and be inspired by just how kind and generous our kids are. 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.

UPDATE: THANKS FOR VOTING FOR MRS. CAP
Unfortunately, Mrs. Shari Capriola (3rd Grade Teacher), did not win the Multiplier of the Year Award for Education, sponsored by the Wiseman Group. Congratulations to her for making the short list and thanks to Mr. Dominic Parrotta (2nd Grade Teacher) for nominating her. Mrs. Cap and Mr. Parrotta are two of the best teachers in the TESD and we're fortunate to have them as they continue to inspire us.
