Dear Beresford Families!

The rain and pumpkin spice lattes are a sign we are in the fall season! Thank you to all the students and families for supporting our school wide effort on raising student achievement, creating a safe and welcoming community, and increasing family engagement. We want reading to be like eating chocolate and we want to encourage all students to read independently every day over break. Families, please encourage your students to select books they enjoy, are able to read and understand. Thank you for working together and stressing the importance of LIFESKILLS and academic success. Also please use our online subscriptions PTA has purchased: (k-5) and (k-2).

Review of the Week and Thank You’s

It was a great day yesterday learning all the LIFESKILLS and Life Long Guidelines with all the teachers and students. Thank you to all the parents who volunteered in each classroom to ensure students went to the correct classroom and had their passports stamped! Please ask your student about each activity and how they can incorporate LIFESKILLS into their lives.
