From the Beaumont Principal, forwarded by teacher Fred Fox:
Dear Beaumont Portland (AF) Families,
As you are aware schools have become more creative in ways to support the needs of high achievement for students. Our library has been in dire need of new books, technology and media instruction. Through our new 8th grade elective, Media Literacy; the students have written a script, produced a video and submitted their product to a contest. The contest is through Bing Corporation called "Our School Needs Contest". We received the news this morning that out of 700 entries across the country, the Beaumont video has made the finals. We are the only school in Oregon. We are one of only 15 finalists. The entire student body is really excited about this. The final winner will be based on votes only. Below are the directions on voting. Thank you in advance for supporting the students of Beaumont.
Beaumont Middle School has made it into the FINAL ROUND for the Bing "Our School Needs" $100,000 grant. In order to win we need to collect the most online votes. You can find the 3 simple steps to vote for our school at this website.
You can vote once a day starting today until November 5th. Please vote for our school and tell your friends and family to vote as well.
