From The Principal

Hello Beck Families,

If you have a child, who will be 5 years old by Sept. 1, please plan to attend this evening event. Registration packets can be found online at and click on the "2020 Kindergarten" tab at the top, or stop by the Beck Office
to pick up a printed copy. If you have any questions, please call our office 586-797-3900.

If your child has not yet had a chance to be featured on our wall for "Meet
the Student", you can still do so! Send in a picture of your child, along with information about their interests, goals, passions or future plans! This can be turned into the Beck office at any time. We need more students to feature on our wall!

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.

Circle September 17 at 7 p.m. in your calendar. Beck Elementary will be hosting its Open House on that night. More information will be shared with parents as we begin the 2018-2019 school year.
