Month of October: Islamic Heritage Month
In 2007, the Government of Canada declared the month of October as Canadian Islamic History Month. The province of Ontario passed the Islamic Heritage Month Act (2016) to recognize and affirm the important contributions that Muslims make in Ontario as part of the vibrant social, economic, political and cultural fabric of our province.
Please connect with the Alliance of Educators for Muslim Students (AEMS) and Inclusive School and Community Services for information about upcoming events including our Islamic Heritage Month – Beyond the Month Community Event for staff, families, and students.
Month of October: LGBT History Month
The month of October commemorates the impact that gay, lesbian and transgender individuals have had in our local communities, nationally and internationally. It is an opportunity to build awareness of the contributions the 2SLGBTQ+ community has made in Canada and abroad.
The affirmation of gender diversity in our learning and working environments means that we recognize the diversity within our 2SLGBTQ+ communities and acknowledge the presence of Indigenous, racialized, disabled and other diverse identities among our students and staff. Likewise, knowledge about 2SLGBTQ+ history helps to address the systemic barriers that contribute to heterosexism and cissexism.
The Farm’s Funny of the Week:
Mathies Home Supports contains a variety of activities that families can work on at home to build fluency with mathematical concepts.
Additionally there are stories that can be read to help families and caregivers explore math concepts with children aged 5 to 7. These stories are also available in French.
Together, with the support of all our families, students, staff and community, we not only reached our goal, but we surpassed it!!!

Students will enjoy a Pajama Day at school!!!!

October 9: Diamond Day- Yom Kippur
Yom Kippur, the day of Atonement, is the most solemn of the Jewish Holy Days.
At synagogue, the evening service is called Kol Nidre. People ask for forgiveness of their
sins and forgive others of theirs. Jews refrain from all eating and drinking on this day.
In this period of celebration, reverence, and prayer, we wish a Happy New Year to staff,
students, parents/guardians, and members of the community who observe this High
Spring 2018-2019 EQAO Results: Beckett Farm Outperforms again!
Each year our grade 3 and grade 6 students participate in EQAO standardized testing. We commend the efforts of our students and those who support them, including our staff and families. EQAO results are one of the many ways we measure student success and provide a snapshot of results across our Board and the province. This data is a source of information to support the ongoing improvement of student learning.
The 2018-2019 results have been released this month and we are pleased to see that as a school, Beckett Farm P.S. is performing above both the York Region District School Board and the province of Ontario in most areas. Please see the table below, extracted from our full school report.
