A message from the Principal

Greetings Eagle Nation!

I am amazed at how nothing seems to phase our children. They have been the most vulnerable during this period of the Pandemic, yet they keep pushing through because they have a focus unlike anything that I have ever seen in my 25 plus years of education. Thank you, parents, for raising the best of the best and better than the rest, as I tell them each day during the morning announcements. And thank you teachers, paras, and all other staff for nurturing, protecting, and teaching them when they enter the school. For these reasons, and so many more, I am proud to be the Principal of White Bluff Elementary School, where we are soaring to even higher heights. We are not perfect, but we are striving for perfection!

Together We are Stronger!

Educationally yours,

Robert Lewis III, Ed.S.
