Beacon Heights Halloween Costume Parade

Thursday, October 31
9:00 am

PARADE INFORMATION -- Inviting all ghosts, goblins and ghouls to our annual Halloween costume parade on Thursday, October 31, at 9:00 am.  Weather permitting, the parade will take place outdoors.  We encourage parents to find a spot along the parade route to watch students parade by.  Let your neighbors know! 

As a reminder, here are our guidelines for student’s costumes:  Masks (which do not obscure vision) are allowed in the parade but need to be removed before or after the parade.  No look-alike weapons or items that replicate shooting are allowed at all, even if it is part of a student’s costume.  These include but are not limited to plastic guns, plastic swords, plastic Ninja weapons, etc.  No blood and gore costumes. 

If you have any questions about your student’s costume, please talk with your student’s teacher.  After the parade, students will return to their classrooms and teachers will let them know what the rest of the day’s activities will entail.  

PARADE ROUTE -- Principal, Rae Louie, and Assistant Principal, Linda Lesue, will lead the parade, pick up classes and exit the building using the main doors on the upper level.  We will parade around the block and return to the school re-entering the building using the main doors on the upper level.    CLICK FOR MAP

Extended Learning Program Q&A

Message from Principal Miller

We appreciate the patience of our students and families this week, as we have been trying to start online instruction but have been unable to do so due to this windstorm and the associated power outages.  Power remains out at Beacon Heights Elementary, but we are hopeful it will be restored soon.  We know many of our Beacon families are without power and heat, as well, and our thoughts are with you.  We do anticipate starting school online this Monday, September 14, at 8:45 a.m.  Teachers have been resilient and wonderful during the frustrations of the past few days.  They are excited to get the school year started and to finally see their students over Zoom.  We fully anticipate being ready to begin Monday morning, and we look forward to next week with enthusiasm.  We wish you and your families the best this weekend.  We hope power and internet will be restored to your homes, and we hope any damage to your residences has been minimal.  Please let us know if you need anything. Be safe and take care of your wonderful families! 

Library Book Hold Pickup

Library Book Checkout

Dear Parents and Students,

We are excited to allow students to begin a holds service to get physical books from the Beacon Heights Library.  This is the procedure we will follow.

  1.  Students can place holds on books through the Beacon Heights library catalog located on the library page of the Beacon Heights website.
  2. Students can have up to 5 books at a time.
  3. Any holds placed before Wednesday at 10 am will be pulled on Wednesday.
  4. I will email your child in canvas to let them know their books are available for pickup.  You can pickup books on the table outside the library anyday from 9-3.
  5. If you would like help selecting books for your child, please fill out the form Book Request Assistance and I will pull a random selection of 5 books based on your child’s grade level and book interests for you to pick up.
  6. I am including a video that shows how to login in and place books on hold.

If you have questions, please email me at
