The 2020-2021 school year is my thirteenth as a school-level administrator. I could not be more proud to serve as the principal of Baucom Elementary School. This school is a very special place for a lot of reasons.
To go along with decades of tradition, Baucom Elementary School is an inclusive school, focused on the current and future success of each of its students. Through engaging lessons in the classroom, targeted intervention or acceleration, a variety of learning opportunities, and a commitment to the social and emotional well-being of each child, our Aviators are able to grow and develop their talents within a safe environment. With our active families and community partners joining forces with our exceptional faculty, we represent the model of what one pictures when he or she thinks of a school of excellence.
Growing your son or daughter toward career and college readiness, while allowing them to explore the world around them, is an expectation here at Baucom and our annual school report card data bears witness to how well we do with this goal.
I understand, as a parent myself, how scary it can be to send your child to school and place your trust in all of us. We take our responsibility seriously and will provide the very best school environment and experience that you will find. It’s just what we do here at Baucom.
We hope to resume school tours in the Spring or Summer of 2021. I invite you to call us to register for one, once we do, so we can show off the experience we provide our most precious resource, our children. Thank you and best wishes!
