Parents Have Glowing Review of Beaver School
Feb 25, 2015
Editor, Ceres Courier, We are the parents of two children who are students of Patricia K. Beaver Elementary School, in Ceres. We made the decision to have our children attend Patricia K. Beaver Elementary, a leadership school, because of the premise of the schools emphasis of the book, "The Leader in Me," written by Stephen R. Covey. Along with the Common Core curriculum, Beaver Elementary offers teachings from "The Leader in Me," which instills the seven habits from its leadership program for children of all ages. This program is geared for children to be goal oriented, prioritizing and to be a positive contributor to the world. Piloted by other schools in the country, "The Leader in Me" and the "Seven Habits of Leadership" shows how effective this program truly is and has positive potential for all the students.

Oct 23, 2014
After careful thought and planning last spring, the staff and students at Country Oaks Elementary decided it was time for a new school mascot. Since the building opened in 1993, the school has had a sun as its unofficial mascot. “Country Oaks Kids Shine” was the school mantra, and the sun would make appearances at school events like Jump Rope for Heart, the Fun Run, and Community Time.
