Dear Bess Families,

Welcome to W.A. Bess Elementary School. I hope you all had a wonderful summer and are looking forward with enthusiasm to the new school year. W.A. Bess Elementary School has received dozens of awards and recognitions over the years as an Honor School of Excellence and a Blue Ribbon School.  We know this is due to excellent teaching, but we also know that it’s due to our strong parental support. Bess students receive strong parental support each evening when they are practicing those skills which were taught each day.  Thank you for partnering with us to help your child learn.  Every year we invite our parents – indeed, urge them – to volunteer at the school.  There are so many tasks that volunteers can perform.  Please join our P.T.O. and find out how YOU can help make a difference in the life of each and every Bess student.

It is our goal to deliver the following to each and every child:

·To create a safe nurturing environment that encourages students

·To accept and find the best in themselves and others

·To challenge students to reach their full academic potential

·To help students find the inner confidence they need to take risks and set goals in their lives

·To instill in students a sense of responsibility and respect for themselves, their school, and their community.

With your help, W.A. Bess Elementary School students will leave our campus prepared to be the teachers, leaders, and dreamers of Tomorrow.

We’re excited to start a new year with your family.
