Mr. Bill Kessler

Greetings to all Bessemer City Primary families! We are so excited for another great year to start. The past two years, Bessemer Primary students have grown in reading more than nearly all other elementary schools in the district. Last year, we had our highest reading growth ever. We are excited this year for the opening of Stinger Park and the opportunities for our children to enjoy the tremendous new facilities. 

Every teacher at BCP is committed to all their students and seeks to fulfill the school vision: Believe in the success of every student, Care about the total child, and Promise to provide a safe learning environment for all children. We are dedicated to working together to achieve excellence. This year, BCP’s theme is ONE SCHOOL, ONE TEAM, ONE FAMILY. Every day, BCP Honeybees say the Pledge of Allegiance. Next, they say the school pledge, which begins, “Today, I pledge to do my best to be the best.” At BCP we strive to be the best teaching team daily to help your child be his or her best. We believe every child can be their best, especially if teachers, staff, and families work together. That is why we chose our theme to be: ONE SCHOOL, ONE TEAM, ONE FAMILY. If you ever need anything, let me know, as this team is ready to help students be their best.
