M-Step testing begins for 5th graders in April - The first day of testing will be Wed., April 10. If you have a 5th grader, please make sure they are well rested and eat a good breakfast before coming to school.  We appreciate it if you try to avoid absences during the testing window.  Grades 3, 4 and 6 will test in May.

April is Autism Awareness Month – Our team has prepared many activities to help our school community be more knowledgeable about Autism and others with disabilities.  Join us for our “Walk for Awareness” on Friday, April 12 at 9:45 a.m.  There is a flyer coming home with a calendar listing all the activities for the month.

Last call for Yearbook Orders! – If students want to purchase a yearbook, you’ll want to pre-order it.  Order forms are available, (but not required, as you can send in funds in a plain envelope with your child’s name and classroom). The yearbooks are $17 – and can be paid by check (payable to "Beck") or cash.  Orders are due by tomorrow, March 29.  A LIMITED amount of yearbooks will be available for sale in June, when yearbooks are delivered.

6th Grade Photo – an example of the Beck 6th Grade composite photo is in our lobby.  We are also accepting pre-orders for these photos.  They are a great keepsake from their last year at Beck.  These are available by order only.  We will not have any available for sale afterwards.  These photos can be ordered from the flyer – and send in funds, or online at www.kaiserstudios.com (Select the pre-pay option, and enter School ID code "BECKGC")

National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) – Newest members will be inducted April 10 at 6:00 p.m. here in our Multipurpose Room.  Those students who have qualified should have received their invitation.  NEHS is for students in grades 4-6 with As & Bs, 1s & 2s, and proficient M-Step scores.  The application process was completed this month.

Bagel Sale – Thursday, April 11.  Pre-orders due Monday, April 8.

Enjoy your time off!  See you April 8!
