FIRST GRADE: AUTHOR'S SHARE (PUBLISHED BOOKS) -
JUNE 9, THURS., 9:00 - 9:30AM
For over 20 years, Beaumont Elementary along with other T/E elementary schools have been publishing individual students' books. Each Beaumont First Grader has written and illustrated his/her own book entitled "All About Me." This year, we collaborated with the publishing company, Studentreasures, to professionally bind the books. The HSA has generously paid for one book per child. The Author's Share is on Thursday, June 9, from 9:00 - 9:30am in the students' classrooms, where the children will share their books with their parents. For questions on book orders, contact Claudette McCarron.

LIBRARY BOOKS DUE BY JUNE 10, FRI.
A note from Beaumont Librarian, Mrs. Porsche Davis-Taylor: All books are due on Friday, June 10. To encourage students to have all of their books returned by June 10, they will have an opportunity to win a Barnes and Noble gift card. Once a student has returned all of their books, they will write their name on a ticket and put it in the jar that corresponds to their grade. On Monday, June 13, one ticket will be chosen from each jar and that student will win a gift card. For questions, contact Mrs. Taylor.

NOTES FROM FINAL HSA MEETING ON JUNE 1
Thank you to Principal Dr. Stephanie Demming, Mrs. Trish Plunkett (Math Support), and Mrs. Amy Romani (Reading Specialist) for joining our HSA meeting last week to talk about Volunteer Clearances, and Math and Reading resources over the summer. We also approved the HSA Budget for 2016 - 2017, which we will post on the HSA website soon.

Volunteer Clearances:
A note from Principal Dr. Stephanie Demming
Dear Beaumont Families,
Beaumont truly values its volunteers, and they support a variety of school programs and events. The District has revised the policies and regulations related to volunteer clearances in relation to current state law. Here is the District's regulation #1300 "Volunteers". In this regulation, you will find many details about the parameters for which types of volunteers need to have clearances on file and which do not.

In summary:
• At the elementary level, all field trip chaperones/volunteers will need to have their clearances on file.
• Generally, classroom party or classroom volunteers do NOT need to have clearances.
• No clearances are required for volunteers at HSA/PTO events or programs.

Again, please see the attachment and the link to the T/E Human Resources Department for more information and how to send in your clearances.

Math Resources:
Students will receive a Math in Focus Summer Packet. We know that you are busy over the summer, but Mrs. Trish Plunkett (Math Support) recommends that children work on a few pages per chapter or lesson to ensure that math facts are not forgotten. View presentation given by Mrs. Plunkett for tips on summer math and visit her Teacher Page for links to other math resources.

Reading Resources:
Mrs. Amy Romani (Reading Specialist) shared essential tips on how parents can help children stay interested in reading over the summer. View presentation given by Mrs. Romani for tips on summer reading and visit her Teacher Page for links to other reading resources. In addition, visit the HSA website to download issues of Reading Connections, which BES has a paid subscription.

BES MINI-THON RAISED OVER $10,000
The BES Mini-THON in May raised over $10,000 for pediatric cancer, which was double the amount of our $5,000 goal. Thank you to all who donated their time and money for a worthy cause.

TERRACYCLING
Over the past year, we have collected nearly 200 pieces of oral care waste and 1500 juice pouches!  We will continue to collect juice pouches, oral care waste and Crayola markers until Wednesday, June 15. Please be sure to drop off all your floss boxes, empty toothpaste tubes, juice pouches, etc. in the bins at the front desk (where greeter sits) and in the cafeteria.
