Hello Beck Families!

Today wraps up the final full week of the 2nd marking period. Our school year is officially half over! Report cards will be out in January.

Thank you for all the generous donations to all 3 of our Beck Giving Projects again this year! Below you will see some pictures of our proud students and their Giving Projects!

The Candy Cane sale was a big hit this week! Student Council and BFV teamed up for some sweet treats and fund raising! See the pics below.

Our 4th and 5th graders went to Lansing to visit the State Capital and tour the Michigan History Museum. They were even fortunate enough to visit with our local State Representative Mr. Jeff Yaroch. They learned about the history of our state government, toured the capital building and even had the opportunity to sit in the House Chamber! You can see some of their pictures below.

Report Card Changes Coming! December 21, 2022 marks the end of the 2nd marking period, with report card links typically emailed out the first week in January. However, USC is changing that process and now report card links will not be emailed to parents anymore! Instead, parents will find them loaded on their PowerSchool account. More information on this change can be found below!

Remember the Winter recess (no school) begins Wednesday, Dec. 21 with a half-day. Dismissal is at 11:49. No School Dec. 22 - Jan 2, 2023! School resumes on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

Enjoy your weekend!

Fifth and Sixth Grade Vocal Music Concert!

We will be holding our first evening concert in a long time! Our 5th graders and our 6th choir, under the direction of our Music Director, Mr. John Andersen, will be performing for parents the evening of December 20, 2022. The concert is holiday themed and sure to put everyone in a festive mood! Parents of 5th graders or of a 6th grade choir students, will want to mark your calendar for this important event!

Note to 3rd & 4th Grade Parents re: Sing Along on Dec. 20

Mr. Andersen, our music teacher, is having our 3rd & 4th grade students sing along with our 5th graders and 6th grade choir students, on Tuesday, Dec. 20 at a school assembly. This is not their grade level performance. They will be having their own concert and evening performance later this year.

Our school assembly on Tuesday morning, Dec. 20, is not a public performance. It is just a dress rehearsal for our 5th/6th grade evening performers, and holiday school sing-along for our school!

Parents and families are invited to attend the evening performance, which is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.

Report Card Changes Coming

Luckily, all Beck Centennial parents have a current PowerSchool account, so the changes will only be how report cards will be available to parents beginning with this current marking period's report - due out Jan. 9, 2023.

Report card links will no longer be emailed out. Rather, parents will be able to access the report cards directly from their PowerSchool account. However, this will not work via the PowerSchool app on phones. The link will only open when using a browser. Please read the information below:
