This Week in Kindergarten

Our Kindergarten Graduation Ceremony will be held on Thursday, June 2 at 8:30 am in the gym here at Beck. Invitations went home in white binders on Wednesday. Please return all RSVP forms by Wednesday, May 11 to your child's classroom teacher. We are looking forward to celebrating our fantastic kindergarteners!
Hurry and sign up to volunteer for Career Day 2016 before your preferred time and teacher are no longer available! You may sign up for one or as many volunteer opportunities as you’d like as long as they don’t overlap (different classrooms). We welcome all parents, family members, friends, and co-workers to volunteer for Career Day. Presentations should be between 15-20 minutes with about 5-10 minutes for questions and answers. We look forward to having you at Beck for Career Day 2016 on Tuesday, May 17, 2016!
