Principal's Message's Message<p>​60's Day, Birthday Day, House Colour Day, First Nations dance presentations, Future Day, 50th celebrations and cupcakes …. and the list goes on - wow, it has been a busy few weeks preparing for and celebrating our school's birthday!  As a school, our goal was to ensure our 50th celebrations were both meaningful for all and student centred and we hope that our students have made some wonderful memories to share with future Tec Beeton generations to come. As many guests entered through the doors last Thursday, they shared such fond memories of their time as staff or students at Tec Beeton - apparently we have several time capsules on the property to prove it!  I think we need to draw up a map of these special treasures for someone to discover one day, perhaps in 50 years from now!  I am most grateful to the organizational committee and the volunteers who were absolutely amazing in supporting this event.</p><p>Now that our 50th anniversary celebrations have come to an end, our focus shifts and we prepare for upcoming Progress Reports and student led conferences.  On November 16th, Progress Reports will be coming home and on the Thursday night and Friday (PA Day) of the following week, student led conferences are being scheduled.  A note would have come home on Monday asking families to select their choices for dates and times and we do our best to schedule those first choices in for you.  Students have been working hard at preparing for their conference and are looking forward to sharing their learning.</p><p>Our fundraiser package came home a couple of weeks ago and we are already at the end of one of our first options with Deli Dudes and Recipes in a Jar.  Fresh from the Farm should be in soon and I know I am excited about baking with those delicious apples! We look forward to seeing Mabel's Label's ( pop up around the school and know that the students will be very excited when Charlie Horse comes to visit from the Barrie Colts during our assembly in late November.  At our second council meeting this week, we talked about the positive feedback we are already receiving around the variety of fundraisers we have this year and they have already started to benefit the school - Some of the money gained through fundraisers have helped to support the cost for the First Nations dance group presentation Visions of Turtle Island and we also voted to purchase much needed jerseys for our sports teams.  We thank you for your on-going support of fundraisers!</p><p>On Nov 15th, the organics and waste department from Simcoe County will be visiting our school to kick off our green bin launch. Every classroom has been using garbage and recycling bins and we are very excited to be adding green bins to the list.  In the future we hope to start adding 'lights out lunches' and other various student challenges to increase our eco friendliness and awareness.  </p><p>Gotcha braclets are coming to Tec Beeton soon and we hope to start up our character education assemblies by the end of November.  Stay tuned for further details! <br></p><p>Lastly, but of great importance, we have been working hard as a school team to set our School Action Plan goals and monitoring plan.  Once the final document is complete, look for our Math, Literacy, Equity and Well-being goals posted in our school. <br></p><p><br></p>
