Weekly Updates and Principal Messagehttp://tbe.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/293Weekly Updates and Principal Message<p>We have an exciting week ahead before we move into the Winter Break on December 21st. Please see the schedule below for each of our upcoming spirit days.  <strong>We would also like to ensure everyone has a good look through Lost and Found.</strong>  Students are reminded to check Lost and Found before the holiday but if you recognize any items below, please send a message to the school or drop by to pick up.  Any left over items will be donated on December 20th<br></p><p><strong style="text-decoration:underline;">Parking Lot:</strong></p><p><strong style="text-decoration:underline;"></strong><span style="background-color:#ffffff;color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;">We would like to remind those driving in our parking lot our procedures in an effort to keep students, staff and visitors safe.  <span style="text-decoration:underline;">The entrance loop into the front of the school during the beginning and end of day are for School Buses and Vans only</span>. Students can be dropped off at the crosswalk through the Kiss and Ride Lane only.  <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Please do not park in the Kiss and Ride Lane.</span>  Alternatively, if parking spaces are available, you may park and students may use the sidewalks and crosswalks to arrive safely at their destination (to school in morning, to car at end of day). There have also been a number of occasions where people have parked in the safety zones and in front of accessible spots.<span style="text-decoration:underline;"> Please do not park at the end of rows, across hatched lines or where no spot has been designated.</span>  We would ask that parents/guardians please follow the directions of our staff on duty in the parking lot, before and after school. We are providing direction in the interest of student safety and to ensure we are able to keep the parking lot open during drop off and pick up.  Thank you for your support in ensuring parking lot procedures are followed as we would like to continue to keep the parking lot open during drop off and pick up.  </span></p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong style="text-decoration:underline;">Late Arrival & Early Pick Up:</strong>  Our yard supervision begins at 9:15 am and our day promptly begins at 9:30am.  In almost all of our classrooms, the day begins with a dedicated 100 minutes to literacy.  If your child is arriving late to school each day, they are missing a substanial amount of literacy instruction which is key to their overall development as a student.  Please arrive on time, ready for learning each and every day.  We would also appreciate it if you would use the natural breaks to pick children up for appointments and early dismissal, when possible. <strong>Our natural breaks occur at 11:10 and 1:30</strong>. Interruptions to classes, especially at the end of the day are disruptive to student learning and end of day routines.<br></p><p><strong></strong><br></p><p><img

How to Translate Documents to Any Languagehttp://tbe.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/292How to Translate Documents to Any Language<p>​<span style="color:#252a40;font-family:"gotham narrow", -apple-system, "segoe ui", system-ui, roboto, "helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:17px;background-color:#f5f5f5;">The app (<a href="https://translate.google.com/?sl=en&tl=pt" style="text-decoration-line:underline;">https://translate.google.com/?sl=en&tl=pt</a>) is fairly straightforward to use and it defaults to the translate screen. On the left is the language you are translating from and on the right the language you are translating to. The app will attempt to identify your recently used languages automatically, but you can just tap on either language to get a big drop down list of possible choices. To make it faster the next time you use it, your recently used languages remain at the top of the list. You can also reverse the selected languages by tapping the two arrows in the middle. </span><br></p><p style="background-repeat:no-repeat;box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:1.41176em;margin-bottom:1.41176em;max-width:100%;padding-right:10px;color:#252a40;font-family:"gotham narrow", -apple-system, "segoe ui", system-ui, roboto, "helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:17px;background-color:#f5f5f5;">Once you have selected the languages you want, you can tap in the box below to bring the virtual keyboard up and type in the word or phrase that you would like to translate. The app will translate it as you type. It might suggest another phrase if it thinks you have mistyped, and you can just tap that if it is what you were looking for.</p><p style="background-repeat:no-repeat;box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:1.41176em;margin-bottom:1.41176em;max-width:100%;padding-right:10px;color:#252a40;font-family:"gotham narrow", -apple-system, "segoe ui", system-ui, roboto, "helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:17px;background-color:#f5f5f5;">You’ll also see a small speaker icon on the left-hand side of every translation. Tap it and your device will speak the translation aloud. This can be incredibly useful when you are unsure of pronunciations. If you don’t have the speak aloud, text-to-speech option then you may need to install Google’s TTS app. On Android, you should also go into<em style="background-repeat:no-repeat;box-sizing:border-box;"> Settings > System > Language and input > Text-to-speech output</em> and make sure that <em style="background-repeat:no-repeat;box-sizing:border-box;">Google Text-to-speech Engine</em> is selected. That route may vary slightly on different phones, for example, on a Samsung Galaxy, it’s <em style="background-repeat:no-repeat;box-sizing:border-box;">Settings > General management > Language and input > Text-to-speech</em>.</p><p style="background-repeat:no-repeat;box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:1.41176em;margin-bottom:1.41176em;max-width:100%;padding-right:10px;color:#252a40;font-family:"gotham narrow", -apple-system, "segoe ui", system-ui, roboto, "helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:17px;background-color:#f5f5f5;">You’ll also notice four options at the bottom of the text box and they allow you to switch to the camera for real-time translations or to take photos to upload, enter handwritten text, open up conversation mode, or turn on voice to speak your required phrase or word instead of typing it.<br></p><p><span style="color:#252a40;font-family:"gotham narrow", -apple-system, "segoe ui", system-ui, roboto, "helvetica neue", helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:17px;background-color:#f5f5f5;"><br></span></p>
Weekly Updates and Principal Messagehttp://tbe.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/291Weekly Updates and Principal Message<p>​This is national bullying awareness week and we have a week focused on building empathy, self confidence and kindness planned.  We will be 'painting Tec Beeton pink' again and covering our hallways with words of kindness, caring and compassion.  'What lifts you' is one of our themes and students have already been identifying the things in their lives that 'lift them' and help them rise above negativity.  Students have also been working on their pledge against bullying and have started discussions in classrooms around what bullying is and anti-bullying strategies. Ask your child about what we have been doing during this week in our stand against bullying.  <br></p><p>A friendly reminder about our parking lot.  As the winter weather approaches, it is all the more important to ensure the utmost safety to students.  Please take care and travel through the parking lot with caution.  If you need to leave your vehicle, please park it.  If you are in the kiss and ride lane, this is meant for quick drop off, no parking.  Do not park in front of the accessible spots and at no time can vehicles enter the bus loop while student transportation vehicles are present.  If you are arriving to school late, we have noticed some are using the bus loop to drop off and sign in students - through later parts of the day, this can be permitted but during the first 60 minutes of school entry (9:15 - 10:15) we still have school vehicles arriving and therefore need to keep this lane free of any other vehicles.  We thank you for your co-operation.  <br></p><p>Our weekly update is below:<br></p><span><br><div dir="ltr" align="left" style="margin-left:0pt;"><table style="border:none;width:540pt;table-layout:fixed;"><colgroup><col /></colgroup><tbody><tr style="height:0pt;"><td style="border-width:1pt;border-style:solid;border-color:#000000;vertical-align:top;padding:5pt;overflow:hidden;"><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.2;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:arial;color:#000000;background-color:transparent;font-weight:700;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre-wrap;">Monday November 18 ~ Day 3</span></p><ul style="margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:0px;"><li dir="ltr" style="list-style-type:disc;font-size:11pt;font-family:arial;color:#ff00ff;background-color:transparent;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre;"><p dir="ltr" role="presentation" style="line-height:1.2;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:11pt;background-color:transparent;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre-wrap;">Paint Tec Beeton Pink for Anti-Bullying Awareness Week </span></p></li><li dir="ltr" style="list-style-type:disc;font-size:11pt;font-family:arial;color:#ff00ff;background-color:transparent;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre;"><p dir="ltr" role="presentation" style="line-height:1.2;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:11pt;background-color:transparent;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre-wrap;">Share your anti-bullying messages through twitter with #painttecbeetonpink </span></p></li><li dir="ltr" style="list-style-type:disc;font-size:11pt;font-family:arial;color:#000000;background-color:transparent;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre;"><p dir="ltr" role="presentation" style="line-height:1.2;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:11pt;background-color:transparent;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre-wrap;">Math PLCs -

Weekly Updates and Principal Messagehttp://tbe.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/290Weekly Updates and Principal Message<p>​It is hard to believe we are already into November!  The snow reminds us of the looming seasonal change and there has already been so much to update everyone on at Tecumseth Beeton ES.  Thank you to our School Council and our volunteers (Carol Conway, Stephanie Maclellan, Heather Goodson, Ginette Shaw, Jennifer Dupuis, Jen McPhee, Erin Pittman , Lisa Elliott-Aldred and Jenny Walker) for organizing and running a fun filled Halloween Dance-a-Thon and Bake Sale.  We would also like to thank all those who donated goods or items for our sale!  It was a great success but most of all, our students enjoyed every moment of this yearly tradition!  This past week we were able to sponsor, through the efforts of fundraising such as the Dance-a-Thon, full school participation in our 3 Day Grotto Climbing experience.  This event not only offered students with an opportunity to reach outside their comfort zones and perserve through some challenging tasks but gave other students a leadership responsibility as they developed their climbing skills and were invited to support and mentor others.  It was a great experience shared by many!  <br></p><p>Over the course of next week, classrooms will be engaged in specific anti-bullying goals from our School Action Plan around Equity, Diversity and Well-Being as we enter into Bullying Awareness Week.  We will be "Painting Tec Beeton Pink" again and sharing positive, uplifting messages around the school written by students for students.  Keep a watch on our school Twitter feed at Tec_Beeton_ES for updates throughout the week.  Our Twitter feed in also linked to our school website if you are not connected through Twitter.  <br></p><p>We are running our next round of Professional Learning Communities for effective and efficient math instructional strategies starting next week.  As a Ministry of Education identified School Effectiveness Framework school, we are happy to be involved in Teaching and Learning Cycles in collaboration with the Board Math Strategy supports.  We continue to post and update our School Action Plan and Monitoring Plan and you are always welcome to come in the school and check it out.  <br></p><span>Of note, if you subscribe (top right of the home page) to our Tec Beeton website, you will receive notifications of new items added such as our monthly newsletter -

Welcome Back!http://tbe.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/287Welcome Back!<p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-3"><strong>Welcome Back!! </strong></span><br></p><p>It's been a great summer and we are super excited to see everyone again!!  We have already started to plan out a great year and can't wait to hear about all your adventures. <br></p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong>First Day of School (September 3rd):</strong></p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong>SK Students:</strong> Please meet your teacher in the Kindergarten fenced in area.  Teachers will be in the yard by <strong>9:15am.</strong><br></p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong>Grade 1- 8 students</strong>: On the first day of school (September 3rd), families are invited to escort their child(ren) to the tarmac area at <strong>9:15am</strong> bell where staff members will be standing by the grade posted signs.  Please drop off your child(ren) at their grade designation, they will meet their classroom teacher and then relocate to their classroom.  <br></p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong>First Day of School – JK Students: On the first day of school for JK students (September 5th):</strong>  Our newest little ones are asked to come to the kindergarten fenced in area by <strong>9:15am. </strong> Each teacher and Designated Early Childhood Educator (DECE) will be there to meet your child. JKs will then be asked to line up and make their way into their new classroom.  We would ask parents/family members to depart once saying goodbye to their child. </p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong>Initial Organization and Re-organization of Classrooms:</strong> We are staying steady with a population around 300 students and while it is nice to be a smaller school for a little bit longer, it also impacts the organization of our classrooms.  Many of the classrooms will be starting up as a split class due to overall population in each grade and ministry limits in a particular division. </p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">It is also important for our families and students to know that as our student population changes, re-organization of classes at the end of September is always a possibiltiy. Therefore, we want to make students and families aware that where pupils are placed on the first day of school, will may change prior to the end of September. We need to ensure that our classroom numbers adhere to Ministry sizes. Preparing students for this likely change will ensure a smooth transition when the time comes to re-organize classes. </p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">PARKING LOT:  Our parking lot continues to remain open to families for drop off and pick up.  We ask that everyone adhere to our parking lot expectations so that we can continue to keep it open at the beginning and end of day.  <br></p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"></p><blockquote style="margin:0px 0px 0px 40px;border:none;padding:0px;"><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">1.  Student and pedestrian safety is #1.  <br></p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">2.  Please enter and exit through the indicated pathways<br></p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">3.  All traffic proceeds in one direction only.  <br></p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">4. There is no parking in the Kiss n' Ride lane - if you enter this lane, it is meant for quick drop off/pick up and proceed.  <span style="text-decoration:underline;">At no point can the driver leave the vehicle, park or block the accessible spots. </span> <em>The Kiss n' Ride lane must be in constant flow.</em> If you need to stop and exit your vehicle to assist your child, please use one of the parking spots to do so.<br></p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">5.  From 9 am to 9:30 am and from 3:30 pm to 4:05 pm, the bus/van loop is closed to regular traffic.  </p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;">6.  At no point, can vehicles exit through the side parking lot by driving over the sidewalk. <br></p></blockquote><p><br></p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong>Walking To School/Entering the yard:</strong>  Tecumseth Beeton Elementary School is a designated walking school for most of our students and we would ask those families make a concerted effort to have students walk to and from school. This would help to elevate the pressures of the parking lot and establish healthy routines for students while promoting an environmentally friendly practice. When students are entering the yard, they may do so through either the north or south entrance points. There is renovation work planned for the kindergarten area and fencing upon which the only entry point will be at the south end of the yard - this is also where all bicycles can be parked and locked up.  Until then, students will be permitted to enter at the north entrance by the kinder yard.  <br></p><p><br></p>
Principal's Messagehttp://tbe.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/283Principal's Message<p>​The last few weeks have been busy and we still have a ton planned for the last 9 weeks of school!  The Spring Dance-a-Thon and Bake sale were a big success and out of fundraisers such as these we have been able to support many student initiatives throughout the year.  Through fundraisers we have been able to pay for school wide events such as Pancake Tuesday and subsidize every field trip this year, keeping costs to families as low as possible.  We have also been able to purchase sensory flooring materials for our Learning Centers as well as in one of our main hallways for all to use.  Additionally, we have added a button maker to our STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) collection which we were able to use to initiate a school wide project of sending out positive messages for Day of Pink projects.  We are especially grateful to Davis Orthodontics as they have fully funded new reversible jerseys for all our teams!   Thank you Davis Orthodonics!   <br></p><p>While it has been a busy year with a solid focus on Well-being, Equity and Diversity, we are staying the course with our Math and Literacy goals as well.  Check out our School Action Plan goals clearly displayed by the front office of the school - We are happy to share our learning goals with you anytime - just let us know! <br></p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong>FUNDRAISING</strong>: Have an old TV you need to get rid of?  What about that desktop computer from 1991 sitting in the basement taking up space?  On May 1 through 3 we will be <strong>collecting electronics waste</strong> and will have a bin available for drop off. Spring cleaning will help support the school!  We need a minimum of 2000 lbs to be able to start raising funds so if you have the electronic waste... we will gladly take it!  </p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">Items Accepted</strong><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">: </span><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">C</span><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">omp</span><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">uting (laptops, personal computers, servers) </span><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">Mobile (smart phones, tablets, cell phones) </span><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">Display (tvs, monitors), </span><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">Pr</span><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">inting (desktop, multifunction, toner/ink cartridges), </span><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">P</span><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">eripherals (keyboards, mice, speakers, scanners, USB sticks), </span><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">Audio/Visual (stereos, receivers, projectors, players), </span><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">Networking (routers, switches, modems, UPS backups), </span><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">Cables (adapters, chargers, power cords), </span><span style="background-color:rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.85);color:#444444;font-family:"segoe ui", segoe, tahoma, helvetica, arial, sans-serif;">Batteries (single use or rechargeable alkaline only)</span></p><p><strong>Items not accepted: </strong>Household Appliances (ovens, dishwashers, toasters, blenders, etc.), Appliances containing coolant (bar fridges, water coolers, dehumidifiers), Car Batteries/non-alkaline Batteries, Exercise Equipment (treadmills, ellipticals, etc.), Toy and Musical Equipment (video game consoles, remote control cars, electronic pianos, etc.)<br></p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong>PARKING LOT:</strong> We would like to remind those driving in our parking lot our procedures in an effort to keep students, staff and visitors safe.  The entrance loop into the front of the school during the beginning and end of day are for School Buses and Vans only. Students can be dropped off at the crosswalk through the Kiss and Ride Lane only.  Alternatively, if parking spaces are available, you may park and students may use the sidewalks and crosswalks to arrive safely at their destination (to school in morning, to car at end of day). There have also been a number of occasions where people have parked in the safety zones and in front of accessible spots. Please do not park at the end of rows, across hatched lines or where no spot has been designated.  We would ask that parents/guardians please follow the directions of our staff on duty in the parking lot, before and after school. We are providing direction in the interest of student safety and to ensure we are able to keep the parking lot open during drop off and pick up.  Thank you for your support in ensuring parking lot procedures are followed.  </p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong>KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION</strong>: Do you or someone you know have a child born in 2015? Registration for Junior Kindergarten students for the 2019-2020 school year has begun. New this year – the registration process will be online! Visit www.scdsb.on.ca for further information or contact our school office for support! There will be an upcoming Kindergarten Orientation Session in May for Families and our future JK students – you will receive information, once you’ve registered. </p><p style="color:#595959;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;"><strong>ARRIVE ON TIME & EARLY PICK UP:</strong>  Our yard supervision begins at 9:15 am and our day promptly begins at 9:30am.  In almost all of our classrooms, the day begins with a dedicated 100 minutes to literacy.  If your child is arriving late to school each day, they are missing a substanial amount of literacy instruction which is key to their overall development as a student.  Please arrive on time, ready for learning each and every day.  We would also appreciate it if you would use the natural breaks to pick children up for appointments and early dismissal, when possible. Our natural breaks occur at 11:10 and 1:30. Interruptions to classes, especially at the end of the day are detrimental to student learning and end of day routines. <br></p><p><br></p>
