Bill Lepp - Storyteller

Bill Lepp is one of the favorite storytellers at the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival. Beacon Heights was fortunate to have him telling stories to the 3rd thru 6th grade  students. He told the story of when he was in 4th grade and all the kids in his class thought their teacher was Wonder Woman. Lots of laughs.

Unusual Reading Spot Contest

The Beacon Heights Library is excited to host our First Annual Unusual Reading Spot Contest!  Students have their picture taken while reading in an unusual place or pose and enter their picture in our school-wide contest. Students might be found reading in a tree, near an important landmark, in a basketball hoop, or any place your imagination takes you. Our students read EVERYWHERE!

Click here for all of the details.

Here is an example:
