Q: Anything else that you want to tell Beall PTA? Compliments are welcomed!
A: I think you have really reached out alot to the community, in a more personalized way. I think it is great that you even have interpreters, as Beall is such a diverse community. I do like that you have helped to organize the coffee with Mr. Alter as I think that really helps with the school communication. Letting teachers know that volunteers can assist them if they want to do more fun-learning in the classroom or the school as a whole Ex: (I have heard of schools that create craft fairs by kids where the kids sell their items to other kids utilizing the skills they are learning in school). Making the 100th day of school a bigger celebration at Beall. Thank you for all you do!
