I love to learn new things and this week I have been learning a little bit of Japanese! Our Japanese visitors and their chaperone have had an enjoyable first week in Cleveland. Our eight families who volunteered to host these students have provided warm and welcoming accommodations. The visitors have enjoyed the field trips we planned and it has been especially exciting when the host sisters tag along the trips. We have many more field trips planned for next week and I am expecting to learn a little more Japanese!
 
  • Congratulations to Josie Zucca who has been selected as Beaumont School's Phi Beta Kappa recipient for the Class of 2016. This award is presented to a student from the top 10% of her class in recognition of academic honesty, inquiry and creativity beyond assigmnents and who also renders service. 
  • Christa Kieley has been selected to fill one of eight spots in the Ocean Exploration Research Program. This prestigious program works alongside the Nautilus Exploration Program (founded by Dr. Robert Ballard) and the University of Rhode Island. This program is offered to rising high school seniors and provides an opportunity to study at the URI Graduate School for four weeks in the summer, followed by one week aboard the Nautilus Research Vessel. Students work alongside trained professionals and receive experience with STEM, oceanographic research, geology, biology, archaeology, chemistry and computer science. 
  • The cast and crew of Noose's Off were amazing this past weekend as they provided five performances for our school community. They started off entertaining a large number of our freshmen during their final dress rehearsal on Wednesday and concluded on Sunday with an afternoon performance. These young women do a phenomenal job balancing their studies with the strenuous rehearsal schedule that is involved in a production like this. 
  • Our Voices of Harmony girls will be singing at the District Large Group Choral Festival at Mentor High School tomorrow. Last year this group qualified for states after singing at this competition. Once again, I know the girls will represent Beaumont well. 
  • Mrs. Riley took three of our students to the Catholic Schools for Peace and Justice (CSPJ) Mini-Summit on Economic Forms of Slavery held at St. Joseph Academy on March 7. Sixteen Catholic schools in Cleveland participated in this program. Our girls enjoyed the summit and brought back many ideas that the CSPJ organization would like to implement over the next few months. 
  • Thanks to Mrs. Santo, our students had the opportunity to meet with representatives from the Internship in Medical Research - Summer 2016 Harrington Discovery Institute at University Hospitals. Mrs. Natalie Haynes and Dr. Tony Prosdocimo spoke with interested students during their lunch period and shared more about the program and requirements. This is just another example of the many quality programs and co-curricular activities our teachers reach out to in order to provide opportunities for our students. 
  • Our National Honor Society raised over $750 this week through their basket raffle. The baskets were on display during lunch periods and were too tempting not to participate. The baskets were themed and definitely well stocked. Baskets included a Movie Night, Fair-Trade, and an All Around Cleveland basket. I was lucky enough to win the Cleveland basket and will be happy to share some of the contents with our Japanese students as take-home souvenirs. The Mitchell's Ice Cream gift card will not be one of the items I share! 
  • Congratulations, Quiyanni Smith who qualified in the recent Veale Youth Entrepreneurship Forum. Only ten students from the area were selected as finalists. This event was held at Case Western Reserve on March 8. Quiyanni is the owner/founder of Cakies Custom Creations. She is among the students in the Veale program who have moved past pitching a business concept to actually starting a business. We are proud of her accomplishments. 
  • Four of our seniors were invited to attend the awards ceremony at MetroHealth Medical Center for the Girls Go Red CPR video they recently produced and shared with the student body. Molly McCann, Lauren Milkie, Caitlyn Lux, and Alena Prcela represented Beaumont well. Mrs. Santo accompanied them to this ceremony. 
I am grateful for our Admissions team and I pray for them during this very busy season of registration. Both Allie Primish and our newest associate, Kelsie Gerardi have put in numerous hours of planning, preparing and organizing the upcoming Registration Nights for students in the Class of 2020. I ask for your continued help in spreading the good news of Beaumont.
 
As always, Beaumont is blessed.

"Live in harmony, united together, all of one heart and one will.  Be bound to one another by the bonds of charity, esteeming each other, helping each other bearing with each other in Christ Jesus."
 
Hope that Helps: Throughout the Lenten season, we are challenged to uphold our Lenten promise by reflecting on the forty days of suffering Jesus endured for us and to seek internal enlightenment on what really matters most.  

St. Angela instructs us to "seek to spread peace and concord wherever you are" (Counsel 5).  Through her words, she guides us on a deeper mission to create peace by connecting with one another to offer hope and help.  Knowing that the hardships and complications of today's society are a burden to many, it's our calling to recognize this suffering and serve as pillars of peacemaking.  By following in St. Angela's footsteps, our increased awareness to her calling ensures that we actively spread the peace and love that the Lord has instilled in us.

What's Cooking In The Kitchen?  From the Lorica of Saint Patrick "Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me, Christ in the eye that sees me, Christ in the ear that hears me." 
St. Patrick (ca. 377)

parentsgalaBeaumont Gala - Attention Parents!
 
Preparation for the Beaumont Gala is in full swing and many of you have asked-how can I help? 

Here are a few easy ways to ensure the Gala is a success for all our girls!
 
To guarantee we have an exciting Live and Silent Auction, featuring Mobile Bidding  by Qtego, we need one of a kind items!

View our complete wish list, the current item request form; here are a few key items:
  • Tickets to concerts, plays, sporting events
  • Vacations-time share, condos, resorts, hotel stays
  • Gift cards--$25 restaurant cards (or larger)
  • Services-Lessons, Spas, Home improvement 
To make our Event Sponsorship goal, we need to secure two more $5,000 Platinum Sponsors (table for 10), two more $3,000 Gold Sponsors (table for 10), seven $1,800 Silver sponsors (table for 6), and six $500 Bronze sponsors (2 tickets). If you know anyone that may be interested in being a sponsor, please let me know and someone from the Advancement team will reach out to them. If you would like to be a sponsor, you can do so online or email me and I will send the necessary information.
 
Wine always works! Stop into the Wine Spot at 2271 Lee Road in Cleveland Heights, or call (216) 342-3623. Mention Beaumont and one of their wine experts will guide you through the process. They will even deliver the bottle to Beaumont for you!  
 
Attend the Gala! Invitations will be mailed on March 1. Plan to attend or volunteer-but don't miss out on this very special night when we will celebrate the women of Beaumont and recognize Coach Jim Emery the 2016 Beaumont Award recipient.
 
Thank you for supporting the Gala and celebrating the value of a Beaumont education, thus ensuring its future for generations of women!

notessMusic Notes
Thank you to all who came and supported our Beaumont musicians in our very first Chamber Music Concert this past Tuesday. The girls performed beautifully and we were treated to some gorgeous music that featured our young musicians in smaller ensembles and solos. Chamber music is designed for just that, and it helps to develop independent musicians who learn to collaborate in thoughtful, creative ways.

Tomorrow, Voices of Harmony performs at District Large Group Festival at Mentor High School at 5:10 PM.  The performance is free and open to all. Saturday, March 19, Voices will be singing at the 5:00 PM mass at Immaculate Conception Church in Willoughby, followed by a spaghetti dinner and raffle, all for just ten dollars. 

The dinner will include meatballs, pasta, marinara sauce, dessert and beverage. The baskets to be raffled are already coming in and looking fabulous. They will feature some very unique and one of a kind items.  Voices will supply entertainment and the dinner starts at 6:00 PM. This is a fundraiser for our choir tour to the British Isles in April. Come out for a fun evening and support our first ever choir tour. Contact me or any Voices member for tickets or more information.

Finally, do you love beautiful manicured nails? Do you hate it when your manicure doesn't even last a week? Consider Jamberry nail wraps. Voices girls are selling them right now until Easter Monday. There is a huge variety and they are really easy to apply. Take my word for it- I put them on last week - it was easy and they still look great. Contact me, Voices members, or Ms. Aimee Kluiber. We will be glad to help you.
