Last Month of School

It is hard to believe that the last month of school is here. I wanted to take this time to thank every parent, guardian, family, student and staff of BES for a great year. This year has been one like no other, but each step of the way, we worked together to keep everyone safe, every student learning, and Bluebonnet running. "It takes a village" is such a true statement, and without our community's support and understanding, this year would not have been successful. I am so very blessed and honored to be the principal of this amazing school. It is a privilege to serve you and your family. Thanks for all you do!

Sincerely,

Rhonda McGee

Principal
