Month of the Military Child 2018


April is designated as the Month of the Military Child; a time to honor the sacrifices made by military families worldwide, with an emphasis on the experience of the dependent children of military members serving at home and overseas.   The Becker School District along with Beyond the Yellow Ribbon would like to honor our military families by celebrating Purple Up! Day on April 16, 2018.  Beyond the Yellow Ribbon (BTYR) is a comprehension program that creates awareness for the purpose of connecting services members and their families with community support, training, services, and resources within the Becker Community. 

Purple Up! For Military Families

“Purple Up! For Military families” is a day for communities to wear purple to show support and thank military children for their strength and sacrifices. Wearing purple is a visible way to show support and thank military youth for their strength and sacrifices. Purple indicates that all branches of the military are supported; Air Force blue, Army green, Navy blue, Marine red, and Coast Guard blue all thought to combine together as a single color, purple.

The Becker School District will be celebrating PURPLE UP! Day on Monday, April 16th.  Please wear purple this day!

Thank you for supporting our military families!

*Military families - please view the information attached regarding an event next Saturday, April 21, 2018.

School Fundraising Scams

posted Mar 11, 2018, 7:08 PM by Jason Borgstrom

Area school administrators and leadership have been alerted to a school fundraising scam targeting businesses in the area. These scams are being facilitated via phone and emails, predominantly. A high-pressure pitch is used. The offer appears to be a good deal,as it promises promotion via a low price for a lot of product.

If you are curious about school fundraisers, please contact Becker Public Schools and inquire if we have sanctioned the fundraiser.

CIS participated in the Lake Superior Regional this weekend in Duluth. They ended their qualification matches ranked 12th and were selected by the #3 alliance. Their day ended in the Semifinals with a hard fought fight. But the excitement didn’t stop there. They won the UL Safety Award and the prestigious Chairman’s Award for the 3rd year in a row. This qualifies them for the State and World Competition. CIS will compete in one more regular season competition in Minneapolis on March 29th-31st.
