Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! The staff of the Intermediate School invites you to join our T.E.A.M. (Together Everyone Achieves More) to make this an exceptional year for your child.
The Becker Intermediate School serves students in third, fourth, and fifth grade. We strive to provide a safe and respectful environment that promotes independent learners. We focus on positive student achievement in and out of school. We teach organizational skills and hold students accountable to be responsible for their own learning. We know our students learn and retain more when they have fun while learning. At the Intermediate School, we strive to engage our students in the learning process. We also sponsor activities throughout the year that are fun and encourage community building. We have end of the trimester celebrations to recognize outstanding academic and behavioral successes, and weekly school-wide Team ROCK gatherings. Each grade level has scheduled field trips, and we sponsor three student-only Friday Fun Nights during the year. These evenings help defray the costs of field trips and give our students and staff an opportunity to play for an evening.
We welcome the support and participation of parents. Many volunteer in our classrooms with book clubs, math support, and field trips. We also know that many of our parents are unable to come into the school to volunteer due to schedules. We sincerely appreciate your partnership in supporting the value of education and ensuring our kids come to school prepared with their homework complete. Thank you!
We work to maintain a Bully Free Zone at school and on the bus. Students, however, do not always let us know when they are being bothered on the bus or the playground. They often report this information to their parents. Please keep the school informed of bullying situations. We will deal with each and every incident.
Communication and positive relationships between staff and families is very important. We have two Assessment Days in the fall for parents, students, and teachers. This time together has allowed our teachers to learn a bit about each child on an individual basis. It also provides the time for us to gather assessment data needed to address the individual learning needs of each student. We strongly believe this day helps staff, students, and families start the year off positively. Each spring, we have a Move-Up Day so students can meet their teacher for the following year.
We are excited to work together to support your child! The staff at Becker Intermediate School is thrilled for the opportunities this year. Let us know what we can do to help make this a successful year for your child.
