Your student leaders have an exciting event for you at Sir Adam Beck. You should buy Wintergrams if you are looking for a sweet treat for your friend. Wintergrams are only 50 cents each.They come with a mint candy cane. An amazing holiday treat for you and your friend. EXCLUSIVE SALE ENDS TUESDAY! You can only get them at lunch in the lunchroom. We are selling the winter grams for a charity called A Beautiful World. We are helping to raise money to help girls in Africa go to school and buy school supplies such as  pencils scissors and glue. These things they cannot afford and only boys are going to school and getting educated.

First Day of School Routines

Welcome back for another exciting year of learning! If you’re wondering what happens the first day of school, here’s an overview:

  • Teachers (orange vests) will be on duty beginning at 0845 in both the West Colas and Kindergarten areas.
  • Classroom information (teacher, grade, and room number) can be found posted in the windows or on the walls of the colas areas (North and West windows and walls).
  • Students should line up where they find their classroom information. Teachers can answer any questions you may have concerning room location, entry and dismissal doors, or any other routine that you may have questions about.
  • Teachers with clipboards will help students and parents locate their teachers and lines.
  • Please do let your child enter the school without your supervision. This eliminates chaos and allows your child to begin the school year with confidence. If you must enter the school with your child, please speak with the classroom teacher first.
  • In the event of rain, we will move to the gymnasium where the teacher information will be posted on the walls.

The first week of school is always a busy one! Help us make it as efficient as possible by sending home forms that come home at the end of the day and throughout the week.

TDSB School Year Calendar

Welcome to the New SAB Website

The Sir Adam Beck Website has undergone a refresh! We’ve moved from one CMS to another one which is proving to be quite a bit more flexible for our needs. Please do bookmark this site and visit us often. As you’ve noticed, it is far from complete. Be patient! Within the next couple of weeks, it will transform to be the community portal we hope it will be!

One of the key features of this new website is the combination of both the school’s website and the School Council website. In fact, we will share a common calendar and resources so that you can visit one site to get all of your Sir Adam Beck News instead of two! Stay tuned!

We are also working on making the site as mobile-friendly as possible. We hope to have it optimized for mobile viewing by October 2018.
