"Breakfast Door" - For Breakfast Only

Sometime during our inclement weather, many students began going in the 'Breakfast Door' each morning - but not to eat breakfast. Unfortunately the problem has grown and now we are experiencing way too many students in the cafeteria each morning. Students should go to their designated door to line up every day - unless they are eating breakfast. Students will be asked at the door if they are here to eat. If they are not eating, they will be directed to their outside classroom door.

Since students line up outside, please do not drop your child off too early. School starts at 8:40 and our doors open to admit students into the building at 8:35 a.m. Families should plan your drop off close to 8:30.

The "Breakfast Door" will stop admitting students for breakfast at 8:35.

Have an Unused Tricycle in your Garage?

If you have a tricycle in your garage that is no longer being used - please consider donating it to Beck! We are looking for some recreational equipment for our Young 5's and our CORE+ kindergarten students to use for recess times. If you have a tricycle you are willing to donate, please give us a call (586) 797-3900.

Spring is Around the Corner - and so are muddy wet clothes!

As the snow melts, we are finding more 'accidents' with students falling into wet areas, or getting pants/shoes muddy, during recess times. If you have 'outgrown' clothes from your children, and would like to donate a few, please let us know!

Our 'clothes closet' of loaner items is very low right now. We are in need of:

  • Boys Sweatpants or pants both large and small sizes
  • Underwear - boys and girls
  • Socks - boys and girls
  • Girls sweatpants or pants - size 6x or above

Having a loaner closet of clothes helps parents not have to run to school to provide dry clothing for their child if they fall in a puddle or have their chocolate milk fall on their lap at lunch! If your child needs to borrow some, simply wash them and send them back for another future user.
