elcome to Beadle Elementary School. We are affectionately known as the “Beadle Bugs.” Beadle Elementary was named after General William Henry Harrison Beadle who was known as the “savior of our school lands.” Our mission is to optimize student potential for success in a global society. Beadle was erected in 1926 and has been remodeled and updated many times throughout its 80 plus years of educating students in the Yankton area. Beadle has approximately 400 students and three classrooms for each grade level. Beadle boasts a caring, educated and veteran staff that works to help each child maximize their potential. Beadle’s programming includes a balanced literacy approach to teaching language arts. We offer full-day kindergarten, Reading Recovery, a district-wide EBD program, and extra-curricular activities and clubs in addition to the strong foundation students receive in Math, Reading, Social Studies, Science, and the Arts. Breakfast is available to students before school each morning. The local Boy's and Girl's Club offers a before and after school program called The Academy (housed at Stewart Elementary with bus service to and from Beadle Elementary) for parents that are in need of child care.
