Happy May Beaumont Families!

I am pleased to say, we had another strong week of participation for CDL and Hybrid. We appreciate your support during the various transitions. Students, staff, and parents have shared with us their successes for CDL and Hybrid.

This week our students received Social-Emotional Lessons prior to period one. The theme that we explored was anxiety and how that sometimes might manifest. In addition to learning about what and how anxiety can look, students also learned strategies to begin identifying and coping with some of their feelings. Each week, we will review an SEL lesson with students at the beginning of the Cohort session for the week. We invite you to check in with your students to discuss the Theme for the week.

We also practiced earthquake and fire drills. Students moved through the exercises successfully thanks to the teaching and review of protocol conducted by the teachers.

We invite you to review the Beaumont, Alameda, Rigler Parents for Racial Equity Newsletter. Click on this link.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Asynchronous Assembly

Assembly Information

Join us on Wednesday, May 5 at 9am for an assembly, counselor lesson, and band and choir performance. The assembly is an opportunity to recognize students nominated at Beaumont Middle School who have demonstrated compassion or empathy this school year. Our counselors' lesson is about empathy and perspective taking. We look forward to celebrating with you.

Assembly Link

*Please note: Students are expected to attend the assembly. However, it is an asynchronous assembly, thus, it will not be live streamed, but students will have access to the recording and site until the end of the day. Instead, students are encouraged to click the link and navigate through the assembly, complete the tasks attached on their own. Upon completion of the embedded assembly tasks, students' names will be entered into a raffle to win either gift cards or BMS swag.

Welcome, Young Writers, incoming grades 6-9! Join us for an exciting time of writing, talking, reading—and more writing! In these online writing workshops, students will turn their digital notebooks to a new page. They will locate the stories they carry, take risks in writing, learn to turn memory into fiction, fiction into poetry. They will write to a wide variety of prompts while honing their writing skills through craft lessons that build both language dexterity and knowledge of genres. Students will join an OWP writing instructor with other students in their age group. After reading and discussing prompts, students will write online. During class time, learners will also use digital video conferencing to share their writing with other students and the instructor to get live feedback and support in their writing. Groups will be separated by incoming grades 6 & 7, and incoming grades 8 & 9. See flyer below.
