Patricia Beatty Elementary School opened the doors to students on August 27, 2007 and was named for the local author of the children's books. A small orange grove on campus commemorates Beatty's most famous work, The Queen's Own Grove . Our beautiful campus was built in one of the oldest sections of Riverside where students and teachers enjoy access to some of the most recent educational technology. Our classrooms have technology devices such as Promethean interactive boards, Acti-Vote devices, Acti-States, iPads, tablets and netbooks for enriching our students' educational experiences.
Patricia Beatty looks forward to our future with enthusiasm. To help prepare our students for College and Career Readiness, Beatty is now an AVID Elementary school. To find out more about AVID for elementary students, click on the following link: http://www.avid.org
Three Beatty students helped Mayor Rusty Bailey during the city's Fireball Run. Our students and their classmates enjoyed Lunch with the Mayor on Tuesday, February 18th. Students had an opportunity to ask the mayor questions and share their experiences in the classroom and in our community. Thank you, Mayor Bailey, for your service to Riverside and to our students.
