The Beaumont Halloween Parade begins at 2:00 PM on Monday, October 31. The parade will begin at the main front entrance, continue along the carline, and into the carpool circle doors. Please do not park your cars in the car pool circle so we can have enough room for all parents to see the parade. There is extra parking available across the street at Hilltop Park. Please be aware that any parent visiting the parade or parties must be immediately recognizable in accordance with our district safety guidelines. Any parent choosing to wear a costume should not wear any part of the costume that covers the face.
The classroom parties are scheduled for 2:15. Parent/volunteer dismissal will be at 3:00. The morning Kindergarten students’ parade will begin at 9:30 AM. They will parade through the hallways of the school and in the car pool circle. Their party will begin immediately following the parade.
Remember when choosing costumes please avoid costumes that include:
1. gory subjects – costumes depicting monsters, blood, death, horror creatures, controversial political figures, or other frightening characters.
2. weaponry – items resembling guns, swords, rifles, knives, or other weapons
3. avoid full face coverings – material or masks that inhibit vision or breathing or cause students to be unrecognizable. Latex masks are not allowed.
Police presence is scheduled for this event to follow our schools and district’s safety

1. Indoor Beautification - For 2017-18 school year, we need two volunteers to help decorate the school lobby at the beginning of each month to go with a current theme. Current chairs: Elena Williamson and Carey Gillis are ready to pass the baton after 2 years and will help with the transition!

2. Cultural Arts - For the 2017-2018 school year, we need two volunteers to work together to plan all school assemblies. These people will coordinate schedules, contracts and assembly day details with lead teachers and staff at Beaumont as well as with the assembly providers. Chairs will also attend periodic Delta meetings at Easttown Library. This is a fun and rewarding job that gives chairs an opportunity to bring assemblies into our school and see firsthand the children's enthusiasm and excitement about being exposed to different cultural and art related experiences. Current chairs Alicia Asselta and Lindsey Weber.
