The Swearing Rule

As the new year rolled around, some students found that they have not yet adapted back to school behaviors, and continued their foul language. This quickly prompted a rule to be set in place in order to both help reduce the use of inappropriate language in the classroom, as well as educate them about the usage of that particular word throughout history. This rule requires that if a student uses a word that is deemed foul and/or extremely unkind, they have to write a 500 word essay regarding the true meaning about that word, how the meaning has changed throughout history, and also the usage of that word in history.

As soon as this rule has been emplaced, the usage of foul or cruel language has rapidly dwindled, with the rule only having been used once so far. Hopefully this successful trend continues on into the future, abolishing certain foul words from our classroom.


Well, WE have made it through the first 4 months of the BETA Minischool.

It was been a privileged to teach your children this fall and we are excited to see what the new year brings. 

Thank you to all students and parents for the wonderful gifts and delicious treats. 

We hope  you all have wonderful holidays full of festivities, fun, and family. 


Kind Regards, Mr. Murray and Ms. Neumann

Report Cards

Hello BETA Minischool,

We hope that you are all doing well and hope that your child is enjoying the program thus far. As many of you know, we have report cards coming home soon and we just wanted to clarify what you will see. You may have noticed that they are not directly attached to MyEd. This is because we have physical copies that will be handed out on the 23rd of November. We have reviewed the reports with the students to ensure they know where they are at. Please email myself (Mr. Murray) if you have any questions or concerns!

Hello Parents,

Hope you are all doing well and that your child is enjoying this class so far (we do like to give them work;)). I have attached a form for the Volunteer Criminal Record Check (click the Mentorship Letter link above) if your child does have a mentor that is not either myself or Ms. Neumann. It is a fill in the blank style document but please feel free to contact me if there are any issues. Thank you very much.

Looking for Parent Volunteers: Bottle Recycling

Hello Parents!!!

One of our classroom roles is for students to go around the school and collect the recycled bottles. They help our janitor with separating garbage from the recycling. In turn, we get to keep the money collected from the bottles. 

We are looking for parent volunteers to help us drive the bottles every 2 weeks to a local bottle depot. It takes about 1 hour to load up the car, sort the bottles, and take in the collections. This is our way of fundraising money in the mini school for Minischool parties or special events. 

If you are interested in helping us out, please contact Ms. Neumann @

Thank you for your continual support!
