Reading, Writing and Running, Too! With the Beasley Community

Beasley students showcased their learning experience with their passion for books while stretching their brains and bodies.

Reading, Writing and Running, Too! kicked off with “picnic” lunches including an Italian ice treat. Students then engaged their family members with a variety of different activities. Lower Schoolers shared books they created themselves or selected from classroom shelves. Hands-on fun included games, craft projects and a wax museum that was part of a Third Grade drama unit. Family members pushed a “button” to see students perform as a historical figure or modern celebrity.

The community gathered in the McDonnell Athletic Center for the Beasley student parade and field day activities. Fun, exercise and teamwork were at the core of the field day experience. Whether students were sitting on balloons to pop them as quickly as possible or carrying large stacks of pizza boxes in the relay race, you could see how much fun they were having with their ear-to-ear smiles.
