Welcome to Bechtel Elementary School!

Hello there, Bulldog Nation Families. I hope you are enjoying these final days of summer; and I hope your summer has been energizing, relaxing, fun, and has you ready to start a new school year. I am so grateful that you are part of our amazing Bulldog Nation Learning Community that is committed to helping every child reach their full potential in a culture of mutual respect, cooperation, kindness, and care. I welcome and appreciate your enthusiasm, value adding efforts, and dedication to excellence in education as we work together to ensure Bechtel Elementary School remains a celebrated and successful school and a place where children feel safe, supported, respected, and loved.

I feel certain we are going to have another productive, thriving school year! Our amazing, talented, child-loving, dedicated staff will be planning and preparing for your children soon. Our effective and enthusiastic administrative and office team are working to register new families and do all things necessary for the beginning of the school year. Our amazing, generous, hardworking Bechtel PTO is already making a positive difference and planning meaningful volunteer opportunities. We are indeed a kind-hearted, value adding community with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting high-level learning.

Families, thank you for your selfless, heroic, valiant service. We are deeply grateful to you for all the sacrifices that you and your family make. We cannot thank you enough for all you do for us each day. It is a privilege for us to work with you and your children.

I am excited to see you all soon, and I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal. Together, I believe robustly, we will make school year 22 – 23 an awesome one!

Thank you!

Scott Tefft
Principal of Bechtel Elementary School
