Mission Mondays

We are trying something new this year to better engage our students and create a more positive culture at Beadle and in our community. I will send out a video each Friday that will detail the challenge for our students for the following week. I think this will be both beneficial and fun at the same time.

Picture Makeup Day - Tuesday, August 20

For Students who did not have their picture taken during Fall Orientation. Pictures will be taken in the morning. Remember to bring your picture order envelope if you plan to order pictures. This is not a picture retake day.

Beadle Open House -- Thursday, August 22
