A Closer Look
2019-2020 School Organization
We have already begun to plan for the new school year! We will make every effort to place students in the best learning environment where we take into account their individual needs, academic achievement, emotional/social development and work habits. Class placements will occur in May.
When teachers and administration meet, we strive to create balanced classes based on the following criteria:
- needs of exceptional students
- academic strengths and needs
- social/emotional needs
- parental/guardian input based on academic programming needs of their child (e.g. need to work in a certain structured environment)
As parents/guardians, if you have any input regarding your child, questions or comments, please share with the office- IN WRITING by Tuesday, April 23, 2019. It is important to note that the final decision regarding your child’s placement will be that of the School’s Administration and Staff.

Beckett Farm ECO TEAM- Announcement
Dear Parents & Guardians,
Did you know that more than 1 billion plastic shopping bags are given out across Canada every year, all of which can be reused and recycled?
With this in mind, we ask that your child bring in any plastic shopping bags you may have at home so that they can be sent away to be recycled into small pellets and used to make a variety of new products. With your support, we can help millions
of plastic bags get recycled instead of sent to the landfill!
Please send your child to school with plastic bags from March 25th to April 19th.

Please feel free to tweet pictures and words of support and/or post your stories through the Leading Edge as we raise our awareness for World Autism Day.
Our students and families appreciate your support. Thank you for joining in on World Autism Awareness Day celebrations on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019.
