Hello, my name is Richard Dupont, the proud principal of Bunnell Elementary School, home of the Bull Pups. Our mission is to prepare our students for success in an ever-changing and challenging world. We will accomplish this by preparing our students to meet the expectations of the new Common Core State Standards. These standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world. Our students will gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in college or a career of their choosing.
Like the saying goes, “It takes a village to raise a child” and as we begin the new school year, I want to thank and recognize you for your part in making BES a safe, positive, and challenging learning environment where all students can succeed. Our faculty provide engaging lessons that make their students really think. Staff support teachers, students and parents by ensuring our school is clean, neat, nurturing, and safe. Students model our BES expectations of being respectful and responsible, eager to learn and well- prepared, and staying safe and cooperating with others. Parents show they value education by making sure their children do their homework and come to school daily on time, ready and prepared to learn. Our community members support us both financially as well as giving of their time and talent.
Truly, we could not do it without you! I encourage you to continue to do what is right for our children. I am asking you to support our vision of making Bunnell Elementary school one of the nation’s premier learning organizations. Parents, we can accomplish this through your continued involvement with your student’s education. Please communicate with your child’s teacher, guidance counselor and administration. Become an active member of our Parent-Teacher Organization, the School Advisory Council and by participating in the many family educational programs we offer. Together we can turn a vision into reality!
