Spotlighting – Beacon School


Hello from the Beacon students and staff. We enjoy sharing our fall activities with you. Many of our classes have enjoyed nature walks and a recent trip to the Sweet Apple Farm near Belpre. Our students are continuing to develop social skills with trips into the community to enjoy local restaurants and upcoming holiday shopping. In the classrooms, many students are working on writing, reading, communication and math skills. The students really enjoy coming to school and working with all the staff. We always seem to have an abundance of energy and happy smiles!

In December, we are looking forward to our holiday performance by the ATCO Choir and holiday movie. We are especially excited about our visit from Santa on December 20. We are all on our best behavior! On behalf of the students and staff, I would like to wish all our readers a Merry Christmas and Peace in the New Year. – Cathy Hunter

It’s been a busy year for the Primary I class. The students are learning the letters of the alphabet and learning to “sign” each letter. They participate in pre-writing and writing skills several times a week. In October, the class enjoyed going to Sweet Apple Farm, seeing the animals, and riding the hayride. In November, the class had a field trip to Lowe’s, toured the store, and got to build a monster machine to take home. Afterwards, they had lunch at Burger King. What fun they’ve had! They have plenty more learning and activities to look forward to throughout the rest of the school year! Happy Holidays! – Jennifer Trotta
