Patricia Beatty Elementary School opened the doors to students on August 27, 2007 and was named after Riverside's local author of children's books, Patricia Beatty. 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 Riverside's oldest communities. Our classrooms are equipped with the latest technology devices such as Promethean interactive boards, Acti-Vote and Acti-Slate devices, iPads, tablets and netbooks. Enriching our students' educational experiences daily is a priority at Beatty Elementary.
Patricia Beatty looks forward to the future with enthusiasm. Our goal is to help prepare our students for College and Career Readines s, 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
PEER MEDIATION PROGRAM CELEBRATION
Thirty of Beatty's fourth and fifth grade students participated in the Community Action Partnership of Riverside County's Peer Mediation Program. Students attended training sessions taught by Ms. Olga Sanchez, Program Manager, and learned how to actively listen and use conflict management strategies for helping their peers solve conflicts. The training culminated in a completion ceremony at Beatty that included our mediators' parents in attendance. Student received tee-shirts, badges and a certificate of completion. Beatty's mediators will be on call throughout the school year to share ways of working together, or co-mediation, to resolve conflicts. We are proud that our students have chosen this leadership building life skill and look forward to their valuable contributions.
