Principal Update

11/13/20

Greetings Beaumont Families,

The transition to quarter two has been pretty smooth. We provided additional tech support on the first day of the new quarter to ensure that students were able to find their class. This next quarter our student will be able to continue to utilize the skills that were developed in quarter one with the new platform, CANVAS.


As the weather changes, and the COVID Pause continues. I encourage everyone to follow the Governor's suggestions so that we can work towards decreasing the uptick of cases. I am wishing you all health and wellness as we go into week two of the Pause. Together we can make a difference.


In this newsletter, you will find resources and information for PPS Meal Service, the Native American Youth, and Families organization, The PPS Task Force for All-Gender Restrooms, TAG, and Childcare. There are a few additional resource links. We invite you to investigate the items that interest you and your family.


The PPS High School Information Night will be held on November 18th at 6 PM More information can be found in this communication.


Finally, important dates are listed at the bottom. Thank you for your continued support for our community.


Take Care,

Harriette Vimegnon

More updates about our services in December will be provided later. Home meal delivery sign-ups will remain open this week.

PPS All Gender Restroom Stakeholder Advisory Task Force

We recognize that everybody has basic needs, including using a restroom. Transgender, non-binary, and gender-diverse students and staff often face barriers when trying to access PPS restroom facilities. All Gender restrooms help create safer, more accessible spaces for everyone. PPS is working to remove restroom access barriers of all kinds throughout the District.

To that end, please consider joining the newly forming PPS All Gender Restroom Stakeholder Advisory Task Force. More information about the Task Force, including time commitment, potential impact, and the application to apply can be found at PPS All Gender Restroom Stakeholder Advisory Task Force.

If you have any questions about this new Task Force, please contact Nicole Kappes-Levine at nlevine1@pps.net.


Native American Youth and Family Center Resources

We invite you to review the current resources for Native American Youth. Contact information for the program coordinators is available on each document.

If you have a child that you feel is performing at a level that might qualify them for TAG please contact Tracy Temple at ttemple@pps.net


Once I have received your request I will send the online form to the parent requesting the assessment for their child and the child's math or language arts teacher. In your email please let me know in what area you feel your child is exceeding expectations (ie. math or reading or intellectual). If your child has already qualified for TAG it will not be necessary to re-evaluate them. All forms must be completed and sent to the TAG facilitator no later than December 4, 2020. If you have additional questions please let me know.


Thank you,

Tracy Temple, TAG Facilitator.
