Hello Beck Families!

Happy Tuesday Everyone,

This was a short week! Everyone is excited for the Thanksgiving Break. Remember no school tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov. 23 through Sunday, November 27. School resumes on Monday, November 28, 2022.

The newsletter today contains information about our upcoming projects - Giving project, Mitten/Hat tree, and Toys for Tots collection. The Elf Shop (formerly Santa Secret Shop) is getting ready to open for students beginning Monday, Dec. 5. Teachers will sign their class up for a 'shopping trip' during the week of Dec. 5-8. The flyer should have gone home yesterday.

Lastly, if you purchase poinsettias each holiday, consider buying them from our BFV and let your purchase support our school! The Poinsettia sale kicked off this week and runs through December 8th! The flowers will be delivered on Dec. 14.

Don't forget - Picture Re-Take is Nov. 30!

I hope everyone has a wonderful, long and peaceful Thanksgiving weekend!
Christine Wilson

Toys For Tots!

Program Sponsor, Mr. Kurmas, 3rd Grade

The 3rd grade is sponsoring Toys for Tots this year. Toys for Tots is a charitable program that delivers gifts of toys around the holidays to less fortunate families. The program was developed by the Marine Corps 75 years ago. Beck has a long history of partnering with the Marines for the last 10 years to help those in our community. To make a donation, please just send in a new, unwrapped toy and leave it in our labeled collection box here in the Beck front hallway.

Marshall Music, and our music teacher, Mr. Andersen, will be here and assist students in selecting the best musical instrument for them, as well as provide information about the instruments. The event is scheduled, Dec. 6 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. in the Beck Cafeteria.

Emergency Numbers Up to Date in PowerSchool?

This fall our school staff has been working with our district administration and security team to make sure we are prepared in the event of a school emergency - of any kind. School safety is everyone's priority - staff, students and parents. Our Beck staff have a bag always ready to take with them, should we ever need to leave their class, or our school. Parents, we need you to be ready, too. In the event that we need to contact parents, we would use PowerSchool to provide us with parent contact information. It is very important that those numbers you list are up to date, accurate, and reflect who you would trust with your child in the event we cannot reach you. Please take a moment and look at what emergency contacts you have listed for yourself, your spouse, and any others you name to pick up your child. You can easily go directly to PowerSchool by clicking the link below:
