Beacon Heights Restart Information

Greetings, Beacon Heights Family!

We are excited to welcome you back to Beacon Heights! We know this year is going to start out differently, but we have high hopes of seeing students back in the classrooms and hallways of the school soon. The faculty and staff will be working very hard here at Beacon to provide students the best education possible. Be assured, whatever the circumstances, Beacon Heights is ready to support you!

If you haven’t done so already, please review the 2020-2021 School Restart Plan. It is posted on the Salt Lake City School District Website at Instruction will be delivered remotely until October 30, or until conditions allow us to return to the classroom. The first day of school for students has been changed to September 8. Teachers will begin their contracts August 18. They will be developing coursework and inviting individual families into the school to orient each student and parent about online instruction this year. Students will also be invited to specific assessment sessions prior to Sept. 8.

We are hoping to return to school on the hybrid model as soon as possible. If you have not already done so, please register your student(s) online using the registration link on our website. We are still planning on kindergarten registration and testing to be held here at the school next week, August 13 & 14. New student registration will be held on-site next Tuesday, August 11. We will be posting class lists on the doors of the school August 18.

If we can be of further assistance, please e-mail our wonderful secretary, Maggie, at, or me at See you soon!

Principal's Message

Tim Miller

Dear Beacon Heights Community, 

My name is Tim Miller, and I am excited for the opportunity to be principal at Beacon Heights Elementary. I appreciate Principal Rae Louie and the talented faculty and staff at Beacon Heights. There is great tradition here! I am confident, through a teamwork approach, we can continue to provide excellence and equity to all our students in this wonderful, caring school. 

Beacon Heights is a high performing school. It is obvious there is great dedication among teachers and other professionals within the building, supportive and engaged parents, and motivated and enthusiastic students. I am excited to be part of this dedicated TEAM. I appreciate the extra opportunities afforded students here in music, arts, and science. It is well documented in research that kinesthetic movement, music, and art programs, integrated into a strong core curriculum, improves a student’s growth and knowledge in all academic areas. 

I have a bachelor’s degree in secondary education, with a biology major and a physical education minor. I also hold a master’s degree in education with an endorsement in school administration K-12. 

I have enjoyed 27 rewarding years in public education. I have taught biology and college biology to high school students. I have coached high school baseball and taught physical education and health. I have been an assistant principal at the middle school and high school level. I served as an elementary school principal for ten years at Ephraim Elementary School, where Snow College was a great neighbor and partner. I also served as a middle school principal in Ephraim for six years. Recently, I have also been involved with adult education. I am passionate about providing a balanced, exciting, inquiry based educational experience to every student—giving them the skills and knowledge to be successful lifelong learners and contributors. Supporting teachers and interacting with students each day brings me great joy in this profession. 

I have been married to my wife, Fawn, for 29 years. We have five children—3 boys and two girls. We have one grandchild and one on the way. Our youngest child, Brooke, is a freshman in high school this year. We enjoy traveling, the outdoors, Broadway shows, and sporting events. My hobbies include reading, running, mountain biking, motorcycling, and camping. My family and I look forward to being part of the Beacon Heights community!

Feel free to contact me by email should you have any questions.
