This is key to understanding what arts integration is: “knowledge and skills in the use of the basic vocabularies, materials, tools, techniques, and intellectual methods of each”. When you join BEE’s programs, we integrate and rotate the arts electives within all of our core subject classes….

This year we are introducing two Track options, a Track 12 & a Track 16, that are applicable to all students to accommodate different time frames on campus. Each Track is explained in more detail below. Please see the School Calendar for specific starting, break, and finishing dates.
Check out how your student can participate next school year in either our cohesive program or individual class days by paying your fees to get started and learn more!
Why is a “creative” education important?
Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson explains that creativity is a “disciplined process that requires skill, knowledge, and control…It’s a process, not a single event, and genuine creative processes involve critical thinking as well as imaginative insights and fresh ideas.”1 Clearly, the arts embody creativity, and they are taking a central role in many national studies…

As I sit here ready to share my story, I realize that where I am today is due to the zeal and honor B.E.E. gave and continues to give me. I hope my life will do it justice.
In July 2013, I was connected with Donna Bixby of B.E.E. Though she didn’t know me, she believed in me and focused on my passion for computer programming. I was pressed to learn HTML and lured with an I.T. carrot that I could help create and maintain her website if I learned it well. From there, I assisted…
Join in the fun! Stay, shop and see the performance!
Treats and Tricks for all. Plan to come and stay from 10 – 2 pm.
A photographer will be here for school pictures. You as the Parent/Teacher can take an ID badge home. If you are wondering why, these come in handy at many stores that allow for teacher discounts. Michael’s, Barnes & Noble and Staples to name a few…
Even though the photographer is sponsored from Inspire – you can have your school’s name on your ID badge.
This event is being sponsored by BEE and Smart N Final. (normally a $4.00 per person cost available FREE for the first 50 sign-ups)
Picture time is from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm.
Schools today, often even home schools, seem to dismiss the arts as dispensable. While reading, writing, and math are of great importance, if we neglect the arts, what will our children read about? What will they write about? I believe the arts are paramount to a well-rounded education! Yet, often they are cost-prohibitive and not accessible to the average family…especially the average home school family.
We have homeschooled for nine years and B.E.E events and classes have played a significant role in my children’s educational experience. The performances represent an incredible value – high caliber live events at an affordable cost, making them accessible to families such as ours.
My son has been talking a lot about the business venture class. Since the whole class is participating as one company to sell jewelry, I want to work in partnership with what they are learning in class. I told our son about the wholesale district in LA and how much stuff they have there for making jewelry. I would like to take them to some stores so they can get ideas on things to sell, pricing and competition.
