"Safe Kids" Event - November 3rd

posted Oct 24, 2016, 8:29 AM by Ryan Cox   [ updated Oct 24, 2016, 8:29 AM ]

The Becker School District is hosting a "Safe Kids" event on Thursday, November 3rd from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm in the district's Performing Arts Center. The Sherburne County "Families First" group is sponsoring this event in Becker and other surrounding school districts. The discussion topics are geared toward parents of students in fifth grade and above, however, any interested community members are welcome to attend. Experts in the areas of internet safety, chemical use, mental health, and human trafficking will be on hand to discuss these topics.

There will also be several displays including a "Hidden in Plain Sight" exhibit, featuring a mock teenagers bedroom with items laying around that could indicate a teen engaging in risky behaviors. Educators and other professionals attending this event can acquire 1.5 continuing education credits by simply signing in upon arrival. This will fulfill the mental health professional development requirement for the renewal of a teaching license. Doors open at 6 pm on November 3rd and refreshments will be available.

One School One Book

posted Oct 3, 2016, 10:29 AM by Ryan Cox   [ updated Oct 3, 2016, 10:29 AM ]

Becker Intermediate is once again embarking on a special project, an all school book club called One School, One Book. Thanks to the PTSA, every family received a copy of the same book – Jacqueline Davies’ The Lemonade War – and we are asking you to read it at home over the month of October. Please make the time so your family can participate in this special activity.

Reading aloud at home is valuable because it better prepares your child to be an effective reader. But it is also a fun, worthwhile family activity. With the One School, One Book program, we aim to build a community of readers at Becker Intermediate. Everyone – students, teachers, even administrative staff – will be participating, and we can all reap the many benefits.

You child received a copy of The Lemonade War at the kickoff on Thursday or in their classroom on Friday. There is a reading schedule on the bookmark they received and also on the other side of this letter so you can keep up at home. Please read a chapter a night – it will take about 15 minutes.

In school, your child will be invited to answer daily trivia questions to encourage and reward attentive, aggressive listening. You will soon find that your child will take pride in knowing and anticipating the details of the story. You will want to make sure your family keeps up so your child can be included. We will be talking about The Lemonade War for the whole month of October!

One School, One Book is a novel program in that children at all grade levels will all be listening to the same book, and it makes sound educational sense. Reading professionals recommend reading material out loud that is beyond a child’s own reading level. And we also believe that you can and should continue reading chapter books with your older children, even when they are able to read by themselves. We have selected a title that can be followed, understood, and enjoyed by younger students, but will still captivate and stimulate older children.

Good luck! We hope everyone will be talking about Jessie and Evan and their lemonade stand competition – and maybe even a little about math and economics! “When a whole school reads a book, there’s a lot to talk about.” With your help, we can build a Community of Readers at Becker Intermediate School.

Sincerely,
The Becker Intermediate School Staff
