It's always nice to see students and teachers entering the building for a new school year. Everyone has fresh, rested faces and all are eager to see what is in store for the new year...a fresh start.
So far it's shaping up to be a promising year with almost 100 new Kindergarten students starting their educational career with us here at the BESt school around. I'd also like to welcome the other 40-50 new students who have joined us from other schools...public, private and homeschool. To all of our returning students, help us welcome these new Panthers and make them feel like part of the BESt family.
I'm extremely happy to be back at the BESt school around. I couldn't ask for a better place to go to work everyday than Bartlett Elementary School. I worked at BES for three years as an ESL teacher and ESL facilitator prior to going to the Central Office as a Language Arts and Foreign Language supervisor. I was fortunate enough to return to BES last year (2013-14) as an assistant principal, and I feel blessed to work alongside Mrs. Watson and the rest of the faculty and staff here.
I look forward to seeing our returning students as well as meeting our new students this year. Go Panthers!
