September 18 – 22

Curriculum Night, September 27

Mark your calendars, Beckett Farm P.S is hosting our annual Curriculum night on Wednesday September 27, from 6:00 – 7:45 pm.

This evening will be an opportunity for the families to come see our school, visit classrooms and meet the teachers. Teachers are enthusiastically preparing to engage you in the instructional program. You will be able to learn more about our efforts in the areas of mathematics instruction, modern learning strategies as well as mental health and well being initiatives.

Teachers are looking forward to meeting all the parents of their students and as a result will not have the time or privacy to speak about individual student progress. We will have an opportunity to discuss specific students in a more intimate setting; parent teacher interview night later in the year.

October 2: School Council Meeting

Our first School Council meeting will be held on Monday October 2 from 6:30-8:00pm. All parents/guardians are welcome to attend.

Pizza Day starts on Wednesday October 4 and runs every Wednesday until December 20 for all students who have paid and registered on SchoolCashOnline.
