What is the Beacon program all about?
Mrs. Angela Heckart inspires students to think creatively! Unique to Beattie Elementary, the Beacon program provides rigorous and engaging learning experiences for students in grades K-5 who are identified as Gifted and Talented as well as for Talent Pool students who rank in the top 10-20% of their grade level, viewing literacy and math separately. Creativity is embraced in Beacon, and at each grade level learning objectives are multi-faceted and viewed through a creative lens. Project-based learning is the cornerstone of Beacon, and students are encouraged to explore their interests and passions.
