Principal’s Message

Dear Bel Aire Family,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 academic school year!  Once again, I am honored and privileged to preside as the proud Principal of Bel Aire Elementary School.  I am eagerly anticipating meeting new faces, revisiting with familiar ones, as well as hearing all about your summer adventures!     

Despite the challenges that we continued to face the last academic year, our students, teachers, and staff proved to be hardworking and resilient.  Our school not only met our projected academic goals, but we surpassed them significantly.  Bel Aire Elementary achieved 55 percentage points and earned a “B”.  We were recognized as an i-Ready Super School, Master Heart School, and No Place for Hate School, and are awaiting our STEAM designation.  I am beyond proud of all that was accomplished during the 2021-2022 school year.  We are going to move mountains in 2022-2023!!! 

Prepare yourself for an adventurous year…a year where only greatness awaits and where children achieve their maximum potential.  The faculty and staff at Bel Aire Elementary are committed to providing our students with the tools and world class education needed to build and sustain positive relationships, set and attain academic goals, and foster social and emotional growth. 

Please know that we are here to serve you and to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of all our students.  I encourage you to continue to partner with us throughout the year by visiting our school’s website and social media accounts to remain abreast of school news, activities, and events.  I invite you to join our school’s PTO, as well as take advantage of the many opportunities that will be afforded for you to become actively involved in your child’s learning journey.

Once again, I look forward to working alongside a warm, caring, dedicated staff, and exceptional student body and community! 

Thank you for being part of the BAES family and joining us in our continued pursuit of excellence!
