Welcome to the Beadle HAL Home Page!

                     Beadle HAL Facilitator: Mrs. Julie Hahn  
The High-Ability Learners (HAL) program at the middle school level is different from the elementary program. HAL at the middle level is not a pull-out program in which the students meet regularly with the HAL Facilitator. Instead, the majority of differentiation takes place in the classroom under the guidance of the classroom teacher.

Students may meet with the HAL facilitator for special projects or units at various times throughout the year. Students also have the opportunity to participate in enrichment activities such as math competitions, quiz bowls, and the Scripps spelling bee. HAL students have the opportunity to attend seminars throughout the year.

The best way to contact me is by email:  jlhahn@mpsomaha.org

Academic Talent Identification Programs/ACT/SAT 6,7,or 8th grade 

    Many of these programs offer a one-step registration option that combines registering for the academic talent search program with registering for the ACT. In some instances, additional test centers have been established that are available only for students participating in the academic talent search program. Talent search participants are advised to follow the instructions they receive from their respective program to register for the ACT. This may require registering directly with the talent search program rather than using ACT online registration or an ACT registration packet.  MPS does not encourage or discourage students from participating in the Academic Talent Identification Programs.  Programs are listed on the website below:
