A Message From the Principal

It is a pleasure to welcome you to Bethel-Hanberry Elementary School, where we are nurturing learners to lead and succeed!  The first four days of school have been phenomenal and a wonderful way to start the school year.  

The faculty and staff at BHE are committed to providing each student with a high quality education that starts with rigorous curricula, research-based teaching strategies, and personal student accountability.  We are instructing and developing the whole student...academically, socially, and emotionally while providing opportunities for enrichment and extracurricular involvement.

Together with parent and community involvement, we are fueling the flame so that our students are well equipped to be successful learners and leaders!

Thank you for sharing your children with us.  We look forward to a fantastic 2017-2018 school year!
