Bahrain ES: Principal's Corner

Dear BES Family

Welcome back to the 2020-2021 academic year. I am excited to welcome some new staff to assist your children. There are several new teachers, paraprofessionals and support staff joining us throughout the building.

Many diverse learning opportunities are in place for your children this year. Our goal is to challenge your children intellectually, help them grow them socially, and guide them toward independent thinking and problem solving. As we strive to promote healthy development in all aspects of each student’s life, we also strive to develop a student body of good character; students who make good choices and decisions resulting in successful and healthy outcomes. We encourage students to demonstrate the best of themselves every moment of every day and to make positive contributions to their classrooms and grade levels. We strive to instill within our student body a sense of personal pride as well as love and collective pride for our school. Your children will have many opportunities to display their strengths this year. We welcome you to become a part of a successful school year.
