Boone Elementary

Dear Boonies:

Welcome to Boone Elementary School, home of the Tigers! Here at B.E. we take pride on being a close school community that fosters strong relationships, academic excellence and good character. As a member of the B.E. family, not only will your student learn how to read, write, and solve mathematical problems, they will also learn how to think critically. Our teachers are dedicated to developing future leaders that can think independently with competence and confidence that will allow them to achieve goals beyond their wildest dreams.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet and work with your student in the years to come. There is no doubt that the B.E. staff are critical members in the lives of your student. The exceptional staff members at Boonel work diligently to provide your student with a positive, high-quality educational experience. As a principal, there is no greater excitement than to observe and participate in the daily learning activities. It is with great pride and satisfaction to watch the overall progress and growth of our students from Kindergarten to 5th grade.

The role of you, the parent, is the most important piece of our puzzle. It is critical that the relationship between school and home is strong and productive. Consistent and positive communication is vital in helping your student reach and exceed their highest potential. Our P.T.O. would be an excellent way to help foster that relationship and it would provide you with many opportunities to have a greater influence on your student’s education. It doesn’t matter if you can help a lot or a little because any amount of time will help. If you are interested in this organization please do not hesitate to call the office.

The 2021-2022 school year will bring new beginnings. I anxiously await the start and continuation of our education journey. Together our focus will be on student learning, critical thinking, and character education to help build today for a successful tomorrow.


As we continue the journey of your child/children’s education at Boone Elementary, we thank you for your support. We look forward to serving you and your child/children. We want you to feel free to stop by the office or call should you have any questions or concerns and welcome to the family.
