Summer Principal Update

June 23, 2021

Summer is Here!

Wow, what a year we have experienced. Together we were able to establish a plan to support our students and families. We could not have done it without you! Thank you parents for supporting your students with CDL and Hybrid.


Thank you, for the donations to the Beaumont Resiliency Fund, this new way of supported many in our community. It is really exciting to see how our community supports each other in a time of need.


Thank You Beaumont PTA, Beaumont Foundation, and Beaumont Parents for Racial Equity for sticking with the initiatives to support the school. We could not have done it without you!


We are currently working on the logistics for the Fall Jump Start Program for the 6th and 7th graders. The date of the Jumpstart is scheduled for August 20th. More details will come out shortly. We will send out a survey to see who would like to participate. This will help with organizing transportation, nutrition services, and programming.


Below you will find Reverse Parade Pictures, for the transitions for the AP position at Beaumont. As we say goodbye to Ms. Davis, we are welcoming Mr. Ethan Kramer. Mr. Kramer worked at Rigler, one of our feeder schools this year.


We look forward to seeing you in the fall.

Have a safe summer!!!

Message From Ms. Davis

Dear Beaumont Community,


I hope this letter finds you well. Many of you know that I will be transitioning into a Principal role in just a few short weeks and thus, leaving Beaumont. This is bittersweet for me, as I have truly loved being part of our community for the past year.


I have learned so much as a leader since being at Beaumont and I feel extremely fortunate to have gotten to work with such amazing students, staff, and of course families. The pandemic has been interesting, to say the least, but it has been truly beautiful to see how our community pulls together in support of our kids and each other.


Beaumont for sure is a special place and will forever be in my heart.


Farewell and take great care of yourselves,

Ms. Davis

Message from Mr. Kramer

Greetings BMS Community!!


It is a pleasure to introduce myself as your Assistant Principal for the upcoming school year. My name is Ethan Kramer and I am thrilled to be coming back to some of my old roots as a BMS student (‘79 - ‘82), GHS (‘86), and BMS student teacher (‘08).


After graduating from GHS, I joined the military which led me to the United States Military Academy Preparatory school and then West Point the following year. Sadly, due to family circumstances, I resigned and left after my 2nd year and did not go back to college and finish my degree until 1998. I received my BS from the University of Phoenix while working full-time at Franklin-Templeton Technologies in1999. From there I got my MBA from the University of California Sacramento in 2003. After some life-changing experiences, I moved back to Oregon in 2004 and started doing business consulting and coaching soccer. In 2007, I decided to make working with youth my priority and got my MAT from Concordia University in 2008 and then my Administrator Licensure in 2016.


My prior teaching experience includes teaching Math (6th - 8th, HS Algebra, & HS Geometry) and Science (General Earth Sciences) at Scappoose MS from 2008 - 2015 and then middle school math (7th - 8th, Compacted Year 1 & 2) at Harrison Park (PPS) until 2018. And for the last three years, I have been the AP at Rigler Elementary (PPS).


As an educator, I believe that building positive relationships and doing so with my students, families, and staff is one of the most important and foundational things that must be accomplished. Without building trust and rapport with those you serve, it is more difficult to get the harder work done well. I also value feedback and input from those I serve and work with so I too can continue to grow and improve my own practice as an educator and leader. I firmly believe that all of our students are capable of achieving and succeeding at the highest academic levels as long as they are given the time, support, and encouragement they need so they can also believe and see themselves as successful academic learners. We must all remember that not everyone learns at the same pace or in the same way, so it is up to us as educators to find what works best for each individual student. I know this to be true because I had a hard time seeing my own value and academic success as a youth. If it was not for the amazing educators and coaches I had in my youth I would not have had the success and opportunities that I have been blessed with over these many years.


I am married to my lovely wife, Andee Kramer, and have a 23-year-old step-son Colin Farver. Some of my favorite pastimes include going to the beach or mountains, watching the Timbers, Thorns, and Blazers, and attending live music and theater performances. I believe in a growth mindset, so I am always finding books to read to expand my knowledge of education, culture, and the world at large. I also enjoy reading and listening to a broad range of genres for fun and entertainment.


I look forward to meeting, working, and learning with all of you so we can prepare our children/students for their next academic adventures in High School and beyond. If you have any specific questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to reach out to me - I’d love to meet and hear from you.

Saludos comunidad BMS !!


Es un placer presentarme como el subdirector para el próximo año escolar. Mi nombre es Ethan Kramer y estoy encantado de volver a algunas de mis antiguas raíces como estudiante de BMS (‘79 - ‘82), GHS (‘86), y luego como estudiante maestro en BMS (‘08).


Después de graduarme de GHS, me uní al ejército, lo que me llevó a la escuela preparatoria de la Academia Militar de los Estados Unidos y luego a West Point al año siguiente. Lamentablemente, debido a circunstancias familiares, renuncié y me fui después de mi segundo año y no volví a la universidad y no fue hasta 1998 que terminé mi título. Recibí mi licenciatura de la Universidad de Phoenix mientras trabajaba a tiempo completo en Franklin-Templeton Technologies en 1999. De ahí obtuve mi MBA de la Universidad de California Sacramento en 2003. Después de algunas experiencias que cambiaron mi vida, me mudé de regreso a Oregon en 2004 y comencé a hacer consultoría de negocios y entrenar fútbol. En 2007, decidí hacer del trabajo con jóvenes mi prioridad y obtuve mi Maestría en Enseñanza de la Universidad de Concordia en 2008 y luego mi Licencia de Administrador en 2016.


Mi experiencia docente previa incluye la enseñanza de matemáticas (6th - 8th, álgebra de secundaria y geometría de secundaria) y ciencias (ciencias generales de la tierra) en Scappoose MS de 2008 a 2015 y luego matemáticas de secundaria (7th - 8th, año compactado 1 y 2) en Harrison Park (PPS) hasta 2018. Y durante los últimos tres años, he sido subdirector en Rigler Elementary (PPS).


Como educador, creo que construir relaciones positivas con mis estudiantes y personal es una de las cosas más importantes y fundamentales que se deben lograr. Sin construir la confianza y la simpatía con aquellos a quienes se sirve, es más difícil hacer bien el trabajo más duro. También valoro los comentarios y aportes de aquellos a quienes sirvo y con quienes trabajo para que yo también pueda seguir creciendo y mejorando mis propias habilidades como educador y líder. Creo firmemente que todos nuestros estudiantes son capaces de lograr y tener éxito en los niveles académicos más altos siempre que se les dé el tiempo, el apoyo y el aliento que necesitan para que también puedan creer y verse a sí mismos como aprendices académicos exitosos. Todos debemos recordar que no todos aprenden al mismo ritmo o de la misma manera, por lo que nos corresponde a nosotros, como educadores, encontrar lo que funciona mejor para cada estudiante en particular. Sé que esto es cierto, porque me costó mucho ver mi propio valor y éxito académico cuando era joven. Si no fuera por los increíbles educadores y entrenadores que tuve en mi juventud, no habría tenido el éxito y las oportunidades con las que he sido bendecido.


Estoy casado con mi encantadora esposa, Andee Kramer, y tengo un hijastro de 23 años, Colin Farver. Algunos de mis pasatiempos favoritos incluyen ir a la playa o las montañas, ver los Timbers, Thorns y Blazers, y asistir a representaciones teatrales y de música en vivo. Creo en una mentalidad de crecimiento, y por eso siempre encuentro libros para leer para ampliar mi conocimiento de la educación, la cultura y el mundo en general. También disfruto leer y escuchar una amplia gama de géneros para divertirme y entretenerme.


Espero reunirme, trabajar y aprender con todos ustedes para poder preparar a nuestros niñxs / estudiantes para sus próximas aventuras académicas en la escuela secundaria y más allá. Si tiene alguna pregunta, comentario o inquietud específicos, no dude en comunicarse conmigo. Me encantaría conocerlo y escucharlo.

As the 2020-21 school year is nearing the close, a reminder that Chromebooks and hotspots will need to be collected from seniors and students who are moving. If a student or parent has informed the school they are moving, the Chromebook and/or hot spot should be collected from the student prior to their departure.


If your child will attend a PPS school next year, they may keep their devices for summer use.

Thank you,
