• Welcome to Beardslee Academy. It is going to be another wonderful year, filled with lots of learning and growing. Remember to encourage your children to keep a positive mindset everyday. The mind is a powerful muscle and is capable of making thousands of connections creating new pathways to develop new understandings. Help your children develop a love of learning by showing them how important education is and how always doing their best work shows pride in themselves and respect for their teacher and peers. Remember that "Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think." - Albert Einstein
