Welcome to the Beals Elementary School!
Our school is located on a scenic island in Downeast Maine. This is the home of a large lobster-fishing fleet where you can watch fishermen hauling their traps and delivering the day's catch at waterside markets. Our community offers spectacular views of the mainland.

EDGE After School Program is Held Tuesday and Thursday from 2 to 4!
Please Check Our School Facebook Page for Basketball Practice Dates & Times!

Bikes for Books for Spring 2023
Jonesport Masonic Lodge #188 is sponsoring "Bikes for Books." Bikes for Books is a reading incentive program where children can read a book, fill out an entry slip, and win a new bike. One girls bike and one boys bike will be awarded in each grade K-6. The program is for children in grades Kindergarten to Grade 6. In order to participate in the program, a permission slip must be returned to the school. Book slips are available from your child's classroom teacher.
The period for reading of books runs from March 20th to May 19th this year. Bikes will be awarded on May 20.  Links:   Bikes for Books Permission Slip (PDF )  Books Read Slip (PDF File)

                              Mission Statement
At Beals Elementary School, our goal is to create an environment that fosters a love of learning. Through collaboration, hard work, creativity, and fun, every student will achieve his or her full potential.

Our Core Beliefs and Values:

Student Assessment
The ­­­­­­­­Beals School Department utilizes all assessment data to help inform our practices at the district, school, classroom and individual levels for our students.  Although we encourage students and parents to participate fully in our assessment program, it is important to note that parents/guardians may opt their child out of state testing.  If you are interested in doing so, please reach out to your child's principal to make this request in writing.

ESEA Report Card -Elementary and Secondary Schools Act School Report Card 
The ­­­Elementary And Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires that schools should be able to be compared to each other in terms of academic performance. Please click on the link below to be taken to the Maine Department of Education website to look at Beals Elementary School's ESEA Report Card.
