September 22

Good Afternoon!
Happy First Official Day of Fall!  Although, it feels like the first day of summer outside!  Let's remember these extra warm days when we're freezing in February!

Lots of good things happening to tell you about:

Curriculum Night - Hopefully everyone was able to attend our evening event and meet your child's teacher(s).  It was also an opportunity to sign up for a time in November for Parent-Teacher Conferences (Nov.9, 15 and 16).  If you were not able to attend, please contact the teacher directly to set up your appointment and to get important information about the classroom.

Picture Day -  On Tuesday our school photographers came for fall pictures.  If your child was absent, we have scheduled "Make-ups & Re-Takes" on Oct. 27. 

Fun Run - Updates come in daily on how our school fundraiser is going.  Looks like we're making great progress, with over $16,000 donated so far.  Our goal this year is $25,000.  Students have incentives and tell me daily how they can't wait to make me into a 'Human Ice Cream Sundae!"  I already have tricycle races scheduled with about 12 students so far.  If you have not registered your child with the "Get Movin' Crew" - you can still do so.  Registration online will earn them a pedometer to wear on race day.  Donations can also be made in cash or check (Payable to BFV) directly to school.  If you need another Fun Run packet, click here:  Fun Run Donation Packet 

Language Club - Students who are in grades 4-6, can still enroll in the Beck Language Club.  It will meet every Friday after school.  The students from the International Baccalaureate School are the instructors.  They have 6 different languages planned this year, along with geography, food and culture.  Registration forms were due today, but will still be accepted through next week.  If you need a registration form, click here: Beck Language Club Application  

Jump Team - Beck Jump Team is holding try-outs this coming Wednesday, Sept. 27.  Team coach and sponsor, Mr. LeMerise, will be in the gym at 7:00 a.m. to welcome 4th, 5th and 6th graders interested in being on the Beck team this year.  This team goes out to other schools to demonstrate their expertise in jumping and sharing the benefits of this fun and exciting form of physical fitness.  Jump ropes will be provided for the tryouts.

Looking Ahead to Next Week:

Monday, Sept. 25  Eisenhower Marching Band visits   8:40 a.m.

Tuesday, Sept. 26   6th Graders - Music fittings with Marshall Music (12:30-3:00)

Have a great weekend everyone!
