Bernardston Elementary School

Serving the Communities of Bernardston & Leyden


Dear Families of Bernardston Elementary School,

I am excited to start off the 2019-2020 school year at Bernardston Elementary School (BES). At BES we have an impeccable group of staff members who give 110% to support not only their students but each other. We are working hard to make sure everyone feels welcome and part of the school community. BES staff have provided a warm welcome to myself and all of the new staff who came over from Pearl Rhodes Elementary School. Together we are forming a stronger network of educators. Everyone has worked tirelessly to get ready for this upcoming school year.
