From The Principal

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  


The mission of Beck Centennial Elementary is to provide a respectful environment that enables children to communicate effectively, forge connections, and create opportunities for success within the global community.

Yearbooks – Last call on pre-ordering yearbooks for this year.  The cost is $16.00.  The deadline was today, but we’ll accept orders on Monday, May 1.  If you miss this opportunity we sometimes have extras for sale, but they go quickly – you won’t want to miss out!
