This Week in Kindergarten

We have had another exciting and successful week here in Kindergarten at Beck. Next week, we are looking forward to celebrating Grandparent's Day. Information went home in white binders this week regarding our plans for the day.

Let’s Celebrate Grandparent’s Day

Friday, September 11

The Kindergarteners at Beck Elementary would like to invite their grandparents and or/grandfriends to come to their classrooms on Friday, September 11 at 9:30 am. At that time, grandparents will complete a special activity with their grandchild. At 10:00, students and their grandparents will head down to the lunchroom for our Grandparent’s Day lunch. Grandparents are welcome to bring lunch, buy lunch from the cafeteria, or simply join their Kindergartener for a visit during that time. Student lunches are $2.10, and adult lunches are $3.25 if purchased in the lunchroom. Please fill out the RSVP below and return to your child’s teacher by Tuesday, September 8.
