A Very Special Place...
When you walk in the front door of Barbara Bush Elementary it is immediately clear that you have entered a very special place for kids. Classical music can be heard in the hallways where bulletin boards are adorned with the high quality work of our Bobcats. The day begins with the morning announcements from our very own student-run Bush Broadcasting System. Televisions in every classroom are tuned to BBS to watch the latest school news brought to us from our student anchors. The entire production, including the operation of the camera, is done by Bush students. We have some very talented students.
At Barbara Bush Elementary School we love to read! In fact our students checked out over 40,000 books last year from our library. Our staff provides quality reading instruction that is supported by our Accelerated Reader Program which helps children to choose books that are on their reading level, so they are successful when they read. Quality reading instruction plus hours of successful reading practice adds up to students growing in their reading ability and enjoyment.
The Barbara Bush Post Office supports our emphasis on writing. Each classroom has a mailbox, so students can receive mail from fellow students and their parents. It’s a great way to encourage student writing-everyone enjoys receiving a letter!
These are just a few of the reasons why our school is special. Learn more about our school on this website or come to visit!
