Dear Beck Parents,

We made it through the last few days before break!  The energy level in an elementary school before the holiday break is something we should harness as an alternative energy source!  J  I’m sure it could solve the world’s energy crisis!

This week we had many exciting things happening:

Kindness Club – Candy Cane sale ran all week.  The students in KC worked during their lunch to sell candy canes.  Proceeds are being donated to the C.S. Mott Children’s hospital.

5th Grade – Vocal Music concert was this week.  Our 5th graders shared Christmas music as well as music from other countries and cultures from around the world.  It was a lovely musical evening – and many thanks to Mrs. Burris!

Eisenhower Show Choir – The students from Eisenhower’s Show Choir visited us yesterday for a wonderful morning of music.  The students and staff enjoyed their musical talents and started our day on a positive note (bad pun?).

6th Grade Band – Some students from our very own 6th grade band played holiday music for our lunchroom today!  It was so exciting to hear them playing.  All the students enjoyed being serenaded while they ate! 

Mother-Son Cosmic Bowling – The permission slips went home this week for the new Mother-Son event scheduled for Jan. 13 at 9:00 a.m.  The reservation slips had an error, however – THE DUE DATE IS FRI. JAN 5, 2018.  If you plan to attend, please get your reservations in right away!

Daddy-Daughter Dance – The invitations for this event also went home this week.  The special event scheduled for Friday, Feb. 9 is for current Beck students and their father (or responsible adult) at this time. 

Winter Break – Begins today.  No school December 25 – January 2.  School resumes at our regular time on Wednesday, January 3, 2018!
