PTO Meeting Update Thank you to our executive board members for their time and efforts in working together for the benefit of our students and staff: Susan Nash, Jaclyn Cleary, Stephanie Maxwell, and Carolyn Russo. We will be looking for parents/guardians who are interested in running for election to an office as our board members move on to other schools or school activities. If you would like to know more so you can consider a treasurer or secretary position, please come to the Monday, June 4 at 7PM meeting in the Beaver Brook cafeteria. Keep collecting and sending in Box Top labels. We recently earned $397.30. Booster Thon Fun Run funding continues to support teaching and learning with hundreds of books added to classroom and library collections, including the addition of Portuguese/English books being ordered for students to borrow. Funds are also being used to support Student Field Day, which showcases exercise and play activities with opportunities to practice good sportsmanship. If you are doing spring cleaning, bring old clothes, shoes, sheets, blankets, and stuffed animals to our Bay State Textile boxes in the parking lot. Beaver Brook receives a check from the company for these textile deposits in our white box. Staff would like to thank the PTO for decorating and providing food during Educator Appreciation Week.
