  • Welcome to Beverly Park

    One of our Four Essentials for Success at Highline Public Schools is families and community partners with strong connections to our schools. We value good communication and collaboration. Families and community members are encouraged to participate in school activities and in educating students in school, at home, and in the community.

Mission

The staff and families of Beverly Park strive to create a safe, motivating, and respectful learning environment, where students realize their potential while developing academic skills through teamwork and an appreciation for the talents of all.  Beverly Park Elementary is a vibrant community of learners. The 550 students, staff, and families focus on relationship building, personal growth, and learning.

Principal

It is a great honor to join the talented staff, amazing students and richly diverse community of Beverly Park! I am excited to lead in a school where student learning is the primary focus and adults work tirelessly every day to help all students achieve their potential. As a new leader, I am committed to the following actions and beliefs for the 2013-14 school year, for myself and for all Beverly Park Eagles:

1. Learning: as a leader, I will spend this fall and all of the 2013-14 school year LEARNING about the many ways that Beverly Park teachers, staff, students and families work together.

2. Communicating: our district has identified WRITING as an area of focus for 2013-14 and I am excited to lead and participate in these efforts. Strong communicators LISTEN, SPEAK and WRITE with clarity and purpose which I will model with my own communication skills, while supporting all Eagles to do the same.

3. Critically Thinking: as a leader and a problem solver, I will model my own questioning, applying, analyzing and synthesizing skills in support of Beverly
Park’s commitment to implementing more critical thinking in classrooms.

4. Belonging: Beverly Park’s community is strong because of hard work to define what positive relationships and behaviors look like. Our students’ feeling of belonging is our shared priority. I will be a cheerleader and an example for this important work!

Beverly Park’s teachers, staff and community have been focused on improving student learning by regularly reviewing student data and working together to plan for how to teach better every day. I am thrilled to join this work and honor the School Improvement Team’s efforts to collaboratively refine our structures for independence in reading as well as in writing and math.

Beverly Park has monthly traditions for Family Fun Nights every third Thursday- we will continue this year with these events and look forward to seeing you there! We will also be growing our after school programming to include more community partners, cultural learning and enrichment activities. Stay tuned for more on that soon.

It will be a great year at Beverly Park, thank you for welcoming me and thank you in advance for all of our hard work together!
