Lost & Found Becker Transportation

posted Sep 12, 2017, 12:20 PM by Megan Ramola

School has started, and with that comes lost items and a loss of your money in YOUR pocket. There is a Facebook group called “Lost and found Becker Transportation”; you are invited to join this group if your child rides the bus. As items come into the lost and found, they will try to put a picture of the item on that page. Please tell others about this group. Also remember, the schools get tons and tons of lost items. If you don’t see your child’s lost items on the transportation page, please take a walk in the lost and found at the schools. Thank you and have a good year.

Congrats to Becker Middle School's three prize winner in the "Summer Bingo Bongo" contest.  Kids received bingo cards in May and received drawings into their entry bongo every time they achieved a BINGO on their card (which was full of different ways to read, kinds of reading to do, places to read) this summer.  A few kids even achieved BLACKOUT (13 bingos)!  Congrats to Samantha Rimmer, who placed first and received five new books and two Kit Kats.  Second place went to Colette Koscielniak, who received three new books and two Kit Kats.  Third place went to Cassidy Paumen, who received a free book and two Kit Kats.
