Hello and welcome to the BES website.
Elementary School is where the learning adventure begins for children! We are
very fortunate to start with an outstanding and caring school staff to guide
children on their journey. Next, our classroom teachers mix in thematic units
with hands on opportunities. Then our specialists add enrichment to the week by way of art,
music, physical education, our library and technology. “The Friends of BES” is
our parent-teacher group that ensures every classroom is provided with a field
trip experience each year. BES also offers great after school programs like the
CODE Club and Mad Science. We also have great school events like the Turkey
Trot, and musical performances during the winter and spring. BES continues to
have great visitors such as local astronaut Cady Coleman, and, the marathon
team of Dick and Richard Hoyt. This great mix all adds up to a wonderful school
experience for children preparing them for the next step in their educational
journey, middle school!
Please call the school should you have any questions or
would like to schedule a visit.
