COMMUNITY

A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM RHONDA & KELLY KELLEY...

Today is our kick-off for our 5 week Annual Fund “Allow us to say YES!” campaign! You are invited to participate! All Saints relies on our Annual Fund to allow us to make purchases that advance our mission to provide academic excellence.

  • Why do we have an Annual Fund?

Over 80% of our tuition goes towards salaries and benefits for our faculty and the remainder helps provide the essentials in our operating budget. Annual Fund allows us to respond to the needs of our students as we implement new strategies, techniques and resources.

  • What does the Annual Fund provide?

Gifts received help provide an abundance of items, including; Chromebooks, iPads, Professional Development opportunities for our teachers, daily field trips, and resources for drama, art and music programs to name a few.


WE INVITE YOU TO PARTICIPATE BY MAKING A PLEDGE TODAY! Our goal is 100%

participation from our parents, faculty and staff, and Board of Trustees. Simply mail

in your pledge card from the brochure, or make a pledge online at

www.allsaints-beaumont.org/development.

We are so grateful for your support!

Rhonda and Kelly Kelley, Honorary Chairs

ORDER YOUR CARNIVAL T-SHIRTS!

Envelopes were sent home with the oldest child of families who did not purchase Carnival T-shirts at School Supply Pick Up day. Parents may place their order for the entire family on that one envelope. Orders will be accepted until September 24th. T-shirts will be delivered to homeroom teachers and sent home with students. T-shirts are estimated to arrive by the 3rd week in October and may be worn every Friday to school as a spirit shirt. Please email Kristin Lostak or Claire Ripper if you have any questions! kristin.lostak@me.com or rippette@gmail.com.

LION KING PERFORMANCE DATES HAVE CHANGED!

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

Minecraft: No longer is it an excuse for not doing your homework... It IS your homework!!!! MinecraftEdu is HERE and the 5th Grade students are THRILLED! Our 5th Grade classes will pilot our newly implemented technology, using MinecraftEdu to build a "Native American World" during their unit of study on Native American tribes in Texas. Students will use the research they collect on their tribes to build online interactive habitats of Native Americans, with the ability of visiting each tribe within the "World." 4th Grade will get the opportunity to use MinecraftEdu to build a globe for their "Christmas Around the World" project later this fall. Wow! It is a GREAT time to be a student at All Saints! See the photos and video of happy All Saints students in Computer Lab and check out the informational videos below for an introduction on how Minecraft EDU is being used in education.
