Thank You for All Your Support in 2018

Way back in July 2018, when the sun was shining and the days were long, we asked BEAM students at our summer programs to take a moment to reflect on what they had learned, how they had grown, and to say thank you to all the supporters who make BEAM possible.

Today, in December 2018, having just passed the shortest day of the year and with 2019 just around the corner, we thought we would brighten your day by sharing some of their thank yous.

To those of you who have donated to BEAM in 2018 or a past year: these thanks you are written to each and every one of you. Your support is what makes BEAM possible.

At this time, we also want to encourage new donors to get involved and returning donors to increase their contributions. All new or increased donations are subject to our π Matching Campaign.

Without further ado, here are the words of BEAM students sharing what they learned at BEAM and what they are thankful for.

Emely, 7th grade: I learned to play Splendor.  Ethan, 7th grade: Because of you, I made new experiences.

Erick, 7th grade: I learned the Pythagorean theorem.

Kaitlyn, 6th grade: I was not interested in math at first. I only did it because I was good at it, but BEAM has taught me that  math  is so cool and used all around us. Thank you for donating and opening this opportunity for me.  Liz, 6th grade: I love the fact… that BEAM teaches us math that is more advanced than our grade level.  l love math!  Thank you for donating.

Ousmane, 6th grade: “In my experience at BEAM I learned many new experiences and sequences at “Weird World of Numbers.” For example, Fibbonaci, geometric, also arithmetic.  Ousmane chose to be photographed with Giselle, who taught his class on the “Weird World of Numbers.”
