Principal's Corner

Principal's Corner

I want to personally welcome you to one of the most outstanding schools in the State of Alabama.  Blountsville Elementary School (BES) is the home of a tremendous faculty and staff who are willing to do whatever it takes to provide students with the necessary resources to be successful both inside and outside the classroom.  There are approximately 700 students kindergarten through sixth grade who come each day to start the journey of discovery.  Some students' highlight each day may be conducting an Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative (AMSTI) experiment.  Others may be engaged in a strategic Alabama Reading Initiative (ARI) lesson.  Students experience time travel as they learn about characters from the past in history.  And yet, there are still more students who could be elbow deep in a fun game in their Physical Education (PE) class.  Students may have to take a break from all the wonderful exploration and consume something delicious from the cafeteria.  Students' journeys carry them down the various paths of the blue lined halls while at school.  Each day when they walk through the door they never know where the path is going to take them, but they keep coming to explore.  I look forward to you one day coming to see what the journey of a lifetime may hold.
