Welcome Back

Happy New Year!

We would like to welcome you back to the remainder of the 2018 school year. We hope all of you stayed warm and enjoyed a safe, and restful holiday together with family and friends. We are eager to continue our learning journey with all of our students as we begin 2018.

Reminder: Windchill

Now that the colder weather has finally arrived, it is important that all students come to school prepared to spend 30 minutes outside at morning recess and 40minutes outside at lunch recess. Dressing warmly for the weather will increase the enjoyment and benefit of outdoor play. As per Board policy, we will not go outdoors if the temperature with the wind chill is -20°C or colder. On days when it is close to -20°C we may shorten the outdoor portion of recess.

Tamil Heritage month

January is recognized as Tamil Heritage month. This year at Beckett Farm, we will be having various workshops, displays, and festivities showcasing and introducing our staff and students to the Tamil culture and heritage. If you are interested in being a workshop presenter or would like to help in any other way, please contact Ms. Logendran at (289) 746-3276 (Ext.226) or sriniranthari.logendran@yrdsb.ca by January 12th, 2018.
