Beard Elementary School - A Lighthouse School

Beard teachers are great because they not only teach us things we need to know in school, but also in life. — Bailey

Welcome to Beard Elementary School!

At Beard Elementary, we are focusing on creating student leaders.  Leaders that are accountable and responsible for their own academics and behavior success.  We are helping our students obtain these skills by teaching the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  Each student will be taught the 7 habits but the ultimate goal is that the 7 Habits become the way each of us live our daily life at school and at home.

My professional philosophy includes the belief that education experiences should challenge students to perform beyond what they previously believed possible. These challenges, opportunities and subsequent successes will define Beard Elementary as a positive influence in the lives of the students who pass through these doors.  Beard Elementary is a school that has set high expectations for all students.  Beard takes pride in providing a quality education. At Beard we will focus on doing what is in the best interest of every child. Every student is fortunate to work with a staff that is dedicated and truly interested in the students that attend Beard.  As building administrator, I believe in focusing on each and every child, each and every day. 

Pam Siebenmorgen , Principal

This School is accredited by the North Central Association and the Arkansas Department of Education.
