A Note from The Principal

Welcome back parents and students!

It’s going to be a great year, and we’re excited to be working with your children and your family. As we are preparing for school starting just around the corner, I would like to make sure that everyone is as prepared as possible. Our COVID-19 protocols are subject to change, and I will keep you updated on any changes.

We will be starting in person for kindergarten through 5th grade on Monday, August 16 with breakfast being available from 7:35 to 7:50 a.m. School will run until 3:50 p.m., and we will release students at that time.

There are many opportunities for you to be involved in our school. From helping out in the classroom by working with small reading groups or assisting with administrative tasks to organizing classrooms, we hope you will find a way to be involved that is comfortable for you. Contact your child’s teacher or school secretary at the front desk for more information about how you can get involved this year.

We look forward to starting a new school year!

See you soon,

Alex Meyers

Elementary Principal

New Staff Members at BES

Paraprofessional Mrs. Eldridge

Hello my name is Amee-Lynn Eldridge, and I’ll be the new Paraprofessional at Bruneau Elementary. I am so excited to be part of the Bruneau Grandview family, and working with the Kindergarten and First Grade Class with Miss Wampler! First, allow me to share a little bit about myself. My husband and I moved to Bruneau Idaho from Northern California in 2015, and we have been calling Bruneau home ever since! We are the parents to 3 wonderful children, Maybelline, Crawford, and Aden, and I’ve had the privilege of staying home with them for the last 6 ½ years. This will be my first year as a Paraprofessional, and I’m so excited to be a part of the success of our children!

2/3 Mrs. Fouts

Hi, my name is Mrs. Fouts. I am so excited for the opportunity to be the second/third grade teacher at Bruneau Elementary. It has been my lifelong dream to become a teacher. I accomplished my goals in 2019 with my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education from Idaho State University. I cannot wait to help your student with their journey to become a lifelong learner. In my spare time I love to explore this gorgeous state of ours with my husband and family. I have two grown children and a two year old grandson, that I absolutely adore. I look forward to meeting all of my students and their families and start this amazing adventure. Thank you so much.

4/5 Miss Davis

Happy new school year, I am looking forward to having every student in my class! My name is Ms. Davis and I am excited to teach the 4th and 5th graders at Bruneau Elementary this year. My goal is to provide an atmosphere that encourages rich learning and growing.


I was born in Idaho but spent most of my childhood in a small, rural town in Missouri. I moved back to the Nampa area about 8 years ago. I graduated this past spring with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Northwest Nazarene University and had a great learning experience student teaching a 3rd and 4th grade combination class in Nampa, ID. I enjoy most things that are outdoors including hunting, fishing, camping, and four wheeling.


I strive to create a calm and creative place in the classroom with many different opportunities for students. I am going to do my best to provide an enriching education that will help every student reach their full potential in and out of the classroom.


Thank you,

Andrea Davis
