Welcome to Beaver Creek Elementary!

Beaver Creek proudly serves 650 Kindergarten through fifth grade students enrolled in our school, along with another 120 preschool students.

Beaver Creek was built in 1997 and was the third elementary school in Johnston. The school building is also a source of pride for the Beaver Creek community. It boasts 96,000 square feet of state-of-the -art learning space available for students, including two computer labs, two art studios, two music rooms, a full sized gymnasium, a separate lunchroom, and over thirty-five classrooms. A new, secured entry was completed this summer, paid for with Physical Plant and Equipment Levy funds.

Eric Toot is the principal at Beaver Creek. He, along with 70 teachers and staff members, are committed to students and work hard to ensure every student makes growth during the school year. There are 25 kindergarten through fifth grade homerooms at Beaver Creek. The school has a full time guidance counselor, a full time teacher librarian, and a full time nurse.

Every student at Beaver Creek goes to PE, Art, and Music classes every week. The Extended Learning Program (ELP) serves our students requiring academic enrichment. There are reading support personnel to assist our students with reading/literacy skills, and four different special education programs are available for students who present unique learning needs.

This year, the Beaver Creek building goal is to have 93.2% of students, kindergarten through fifth grade, attain a proficient or higher end-of-year benchmark level using the Fountas and Pinnell benchmarking kits.

We welcome you to visit our school! All visitors to the building will be directed to the front office to gain access to the rest of the school. Please call our office (515-278-6228) to arrange a visit.
