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,

Absences Add Up

Your child’s daily, on-time attendance is critical to their success in school. And while some challenges to your child’s school attendance are unavoidable, it’s important to understand the impact of each absence.

A student is considered chronically absent if they miss only two days of school per month (18 days in a year), whether the absences are excused or unexcused. This is true for children as early as elementary school, when they are at a higher risk of falling behind in reading. Even one year of chronic absence can cause a child to fall behind academically and decrease a child’s chances of graduating from high school, which can have long-term consequences on their financial independence, physical well-being and mental health.

The good news? Attending school every day increases a child’s chances of success in school and in life.
