Newsletter for Parents and Friends of
Beaumont School

October 21 - 27, 2018
Message from the Principal

Parents and Friends of Beaumont,

Tomorrow will mark the midpoint for this fall semester. Because we are on a semester calendar and not quarters, we will be sending out interim reports not report cards next week. The difference being that the grades included on the interim reports are not stored and do not get calculated into a student’s final grade point average. They do however, offer a good glimpse into your daughter’s progress and performance thus far. These interim reports will be mailed out early next week, so you have plenty of time to review them prior to parent/teacher conferences on Thursday, November 1. Conferences will take place from 3:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. that evening. As always, all parents are encouraged to attend. If your daughter is struggling in a class or is not performing up to expectations, we especially encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. Unlike past years, there will be no spring semester conferences, so this will be the only parent/teacher conferences night this year. Please know that teachers are always available by email or phone throughout the year. Our goal is that all parents have an opportunity to talk with their daughter's teachers. To help facilitate this, we have created this signup form for you. We look forward to seeing you.

Other Notes

The newsletter is moving! No need to worry, we will continue to email the letter each week, but we are now also placing it in our News section on our website, so you can easily find it whenever you want, without searching your email. But if you like searching for stuff, you can use the Search function when you click Menu on our website and type “newsletter” to find it as well.

Mission Integration

This week we celebrate the feast of St. Teresa of Avila, a doctor of the Church, who was a contemporary of St. Angela Merici. In her writings Teresa says, that God “looks not so much at the greatness of our works, as at the love with which they are done.” Like St. Angela, she believes that much more can be accomplished with kindness and concern than with harsh words or stern criticism. Teresa says “ May ours be the eyes with which he (Christ) looks with compassion on the world. May ours be the feet with which he walks to do good.” 
Campus Ministry News

Thanks to Peer Ministers, Eucharistic Ministers and Music Ministers who worked together for a smooth liturgy! Many guests joined us, including some Ursuline Sisters who worked in Salvador with Sr. Dorothy Kazel!

Beaumont’s preparations for the upcoming Kairos retreat (Nov. 8-10) continue with St. Edward’s staff. Those attending should have their permission slips and payment in by Friday, Oct. 26. Also, the Junior class retreat has been rescheduled to November 16 .

The Beaumont community is encouraged to join us in the chapel at 7:50 to pray together the 40 Days for Life prayer.
