Happy Thanksgiving to all that celebrate!
Thank you families!
Thank you to all our families for joining us on Curriculum Night last week! What a great turnout we had! The staff at Beckett Farm PS appreciate all that our families do to help make our learning environment one that prides itself in fostering a warm and inclusive place to be. We are fortunate to have the support and engagement from our families and are always hoping to continue to build our partnership with all our families.
A Closer Look
International Baccalaureate Programme
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme is student-centred with a focus on developing intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills for students who live, learn and work in a rapidly changing world. The Programme emphasizes critical, compassionate thinking, community involvement and intercultural understanding. It is founded on international standards and assessment. Students who complete the Programme earn both an Ontario Secondary School Diploma and an IB Diploma.
We invite students who will be starting Grade 8 in September to find their area IB School or Candidate School on the YRDSB School Locator (http://www.yrdsb.ca/schools/pages/school-locator.aspx) and join us for an information evening to discover what we can offer.
Please see the flyer for more info:
The York Region District School Board (“the Board”) is firmly committed to ensuring that the Board Community is provided with a barrier-free environment that affords independence and treatment with dignity to all. We believe that all members of the Board community have the right to experience inclusion, diversity, and equal opportunity in all aspects of their interactions with the Board.
An electronic reporting tool that provides all members of the school community an opportunity to identify and describe particular impediments they, or someone they know, are experiencing in obtaining access to Board services or buildings. The identified barrier is reviewed by the appropriate staff and responded to accordingly.
In November 2018, York Region District School Board will invite all students to participate in the Every Student Counts Survey (ESCS). The purpose of this census survey is to better understand YRDSB’s diverse student population as well as students’ experiences in school and outside of school.
Families with a child in Kindergarten to Grade 6 will be invited to complete the survey online with their child at home.
Students in Grades 7-12 will be invited to complete the survey online during class time. If you are a parent/guardian of child(ren) in Grades 7-12 and do not want them to participate in the survey, please contact CCI Research at 1-866-450-4907 no later than October 9, 2018.
The surveys are voluntary and confidential. Information about the surveys and the process is available at www.yrdsb.ca/escs. This important initiative will help us work together to create equitable and inclusive school environments.
