Dear Parents and Friends,
   Welcome to Bee Log Elementary School where we stand by our vision statement, "If you believe it, you can achieve it!".
   While viewing our school website and report card you will access data regarding student performance, class size, attendance, school safety, instructional resources and teacher quality.  (You may access our school's full report card on the NC School Report Cards' website at  However, that information represents only part of our school demographics.  We have many other programs and initiatives which help to make our school unique.  For example, we offer the following afterschool programs which also enhance our instruction;  4-H, beginner guitar (grades 3-5 known as "The Front Porch Pickers", technology, and after school wide WOW (Working on Wellness) Club, as well as our Greenhouse Program.  We are very lucky to have many volunteers within our community to help us provide such wonderful programs for our students.
   During the 2013-14 school year we will continue to focus on North Carolina's high standards for achievement.  We will have a strong focus on the K-5 Science Curriculum, and Writing across all grade levels, and immersing our students in literature which is visually displayed through out the school.  We will continue implementing Literature Circles and Paideia seminars into our guided reading lessons.  Also, grades K-5 will continue to implement elements of the 4Blocks Language Arts Program.  There will be a strrong emphasis on mathematical concepts such as number sense, measurement, data and probability, algebra and probleming solving.
   We are continuing to work on the implmentation of the PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Support) Program within our school.  Bee Log Elementary was awarded the status of a "model" school this year and we are now trying to attain the status of an "examplar" school.
   We are encouraging our students to show their "PAWS" (Pride, Attitude, Working and Safety), throughout the day.
   At Bee Log Elementary we encourage all parents to become more informed about school's progress, as well as welcome them to become an active volunteer within our school.  Please feel free to contact me directly to discuss any aspect of our school that interests you.  Thank you for allowing me to share this information with you, and thank you for supporting our efforts to provide the children of Bee Log Elem.  with a high-quality education.  We welcome you to join our team and show your PAW PRIDE!
