Mobile Ed Productions will present the STEAM Museum for K-5 students with a parent or guardian. This is not a drop off event.
Preregistration is required. More Details to Follow in backpack mail.
The STEAM Museum has something for all grade levels and interests. Students are encouraged to explore the museum at their own pace and manage their time between stations that appeal to their individual interests. Adult supervision from the Mobile Ed presenter and parent volunteers will be present at some of the stations to focus the students and to positively enhance the experience with small group instruction. 

Annual Book Award Scholarships
The Beverly Education Foundation offers two $500 Book Awards each year to a female and male Beverly High School senior who are continuing their education at a college or university. Each year, the Foundation receives many compelling applications from talented seniors. The board of directors reads all applications, discusses the various candidates' qualifications and ultimately votes for two recipients. In 2017, the Foundation is honored to announce that the Annual Book Awards were handed out at the Beverly High School Scholarship Night in June to Abby Murphy and Matthew Enos, who is attending Johnson & Wales. Congratulations and good luck to these two worthy, accomplished and deserving seniors. 
The Annual Honor A Teacher Campaign has been a huge success thanks to you!

Each year, the Beverly Education Foundation encourages people to recognize a teacher, administrator, coach, paraprofessional, librarian, custodian or staff member who has made a difference in a student's life. For only $10, $25 or any amount, people can "honor" an outstanding, dedicated educator. Educators who students recall made a difference in their lives and careers can be recognized in memorium as well. This year, the Beverly Education Foundation raised over $8,000 in the Honor A Teacher Campaign. All proceeds from this effort are used to fund the Teacher/Parent Grants each spring.

Thank you to all who contributed! 

Beverly Education Foundation Awards $15,000 in Teacher/Parent Grants for 2017-2018!
The Beverly Education Foundation awarded $15,000 to Beverly Public School educators for its Annual Teacher/Parent Grants Program. This is the highest amount the Foundation has ever awarded. The Foundation supports the wonderfully creative ideas of our educators which enhance teaching and learning in a 21st century global environment.  Grant awards support a wide variety of curriculum-based topics and projects that benefit all students. All monies raised from the annual Honor A Teacher Program are used to fund the grant awards. Many thanks to all who supported this appeal.
