Dear Beck Parents,

We officially completed the first marking period and are in the middle of Parent-Teacher Conferences.  If you have not yet made an appointment to meet with your child's teacher yet, we still have two more conference sessions coming up:  Wed., Nov. 15 and Thurs., Nov. 16.  Please call the Beck office to see what times are available 586-797-3900.

Half-Day School - November 16 -  School is dismissed at 11:29 a.m.  (for parent conferences)

Report Cards - The first marking report cards will be distributed electronically to families at the end of the day, Tuesday, Nov. 21.  The report cards will be automatically e-mailed to the address that is used to register the PowerSchool account.  If you already have a PowerSchool account, you do not need to take any further action.  The cards will be sent automatically. 

Number Talks - On our Professional Development Day, Nov. 7, the Beck staff was in school learning about "Number Talks" - 5-15 minute conversations specifically led to help students visualize mathematics, ultimately helping them to be more flexible thinkers mathematically.  So if your child is flashing dot patterns in front of you and asking you what you see . . . they're engaging you in a "number talk"!  Be sure and ask them what they 'talked' about today!

Mod Pizza Family Dinner Night - Thanks to everyone who came out last week for dinner at Mod Pizza.  I have to admit, it was a lot harder than it looked to whip up those delicious pizzas!  Thanks to BFV for organizing that fun evening for us - and hopefully we made some donations as well!  Our next family dinner is in March (15th) when we'll be at Art and Jakes.

Lunch with Mrs. Wilson - I thoroughly enjoyed my luncheons with our fund raiser winners this week.  I forgot the simple pleasures of a McDonald's cheeseburger and sharing fun stories with happy kids!

Happy Veteran's Day tomorrow and enjoy your weekend!
