Dear Parent or Guardian:

During the week of May 21-24, 2019, your child will be participating in the Education Quality and Accountability Office’s (EQAO’s) Assessment of Reading, Writing and Mathematics, Junior Division, Grade 6 and the week of May 27-30, 2019, the Primary Division, Grade 3.

In six one-hour sessions, students will complete a variety of assessment activities designed to allow them to demonstrate their skills and knowledge relating to reading, writing and mathematics as described in The Ontario Curriculum. The assessment is administered province-wide and is developed by Ontario teachers and assessment experts to reflect curriculum expectations.

PLEASE ENSURE YOUR CHILDREN ARE AT SCHOOL AND ON TIME FOR ALL THOSE DAYS!

EQAO has developed a “Parent’s Guide to EQAO Tests” and “Questions and Answers for Parents” (available in 20 languages) to give you more information about the assessments and an understanding of what to expect. To access these resources, go to the EQAO Web site (www.eqao.com), click “Parent Resources” and then select “Primary Division (Grades 1–3) and Junior Division (Grades 4–6).”

If you have any questions, please call me or your child’s teacher.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. Prebtani

Vice-Principal

Lunch container safety at Beckett Farm 

Image result for no glass containersDear Families,

A gentle reminder to please refrain from sending glass containers of any kind with your children to school (lunch containers, water bottles, etc) as this does pose a safety concern. We have had on multiple occasions broken glass due to such containers being brought to school.  If you have any questions, please see the office.

Thank you for your support to maintain a safe environment for student and staff.
