Holocaust Education Week
The week of November 2 to 9 marks the 36th annual Holocaust Education Week. The purpose of this week has been to raise awareness of the atrocities perpetrated against the Jewish people during the Nazi regime, in the hope of encouraging remembrance and denouncing intolerance of all people. Through various age-appropriate lessons and resources, we hope that our students can learn about the Holocaust of World War II, and most importantly discuss the many different people who stood for social justice for all, and also the many other forms of genocide, world-wide in the past and present, as means of working towards the end of intolerance, discrimination and hatred.

Halloween at Beckett Farm
This is a time of great excitement for all of our students. We encourage everyone who is interested to dress in costume or in orange and brown to reflect fall colours. We would like to remind all our parents that Halloween treats are NOT to be brought to school as the risk of allergies is too great. This year, due to recent events in the news, we are asking students to refrain from wearing clown costumes and also, it is important to remember that no weapons or masks are to be part of costumes, even plastic ones. The Student Council will be selling candy jar raffle guesses at 1st recess from October 24-27. For just 25 cents per guess, students will have the opportunity to win a jar of nut-free Halloween candy.
