Principal's Message

Welcome to a great new year and new system!

A Hundred Years From Now

"A hundred years from now, it will not even matter what my bank account was,
the sort of house I lived in, or even the kind of car I drove...
but the world may be different  because I was important
in the life of a CHILD!"

At Bartlett Elementary, we ALL make a difference.
Together for the children of BES,
