Letter from the Principal

Dear BEC Families,

I am thrilled to be your principal for SY24-25. Our school theme for the year is #WEFLYHIGH. Thank you for your continued trust in our team and ongoing partnership as we work together to support your children all year. I look forward to continuing our work together to make BEC a truly amazing place to learn and grow.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you have; I am more than happy to schedule a phone call or an in-person meeting if you would like to talk. I am looking forward to #FLYHIGH with each of you in school year 24-25!

Take care,
Mr. Cullum
