Beacon Principal Ryan Bruder greets students on the first day of school

Welcome to Beacon Elementary, one of  two young five through second grade buildings in the Dexter Community School district.

Our mission is to provide a rich, stimulating, diverse, and caring learning environment. Everyone here celebrates the growth and success of our students. Everyone here cares and takes the time to invest in the individuals that walk through our doors. However, we cannot do this important work alone! Beacon is  very fortunate and thankful for the support it receives from incredibly engaged parents, families, and  partnerships from throughout the district.

We are on Twitter!
