It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost here.
For many in our community with stressed budgets
and financial challenges, a Thanksgiving dinner just
isn’t possible. Your support of BES's annual Thanksgiving Basket Food Drive will help make a fulfilling holiday possible for our own families this season.
We appreciate your gracious donations to help make this happen.
A response from a Thanksgiving recipient:
“I am in awe of the people at BES. This basket will make it possible for our family to give thanks and remind us how lucky we are to be a part of the Bartlett Elementary family.”

We have been fortunate enough to receive federal Title 1 funds for the past several years at BES. These funds have provided our little panthers with additional programs, personnel (Seven positions), student devices, and supplies that we would not have if we were not a Title school. In order to remain Title 1 eligible, 40% or more of our students must qualify for free and reduced meals. Even if you are not going to use the meal program offered at school, your child will continue to benefit from the additional funding through the resources we are able to provide our students with due to Title money. Please take a few minutes to help BES secure our Title status for next year!
We greatly need and appreciate your support!
