Welcome to Bates

Bates Mission Statement
Bates Elementary is a partnership of students, teachers, parents and community inspiring students to become lifelong learners and contributors in society


Dear Parent(s),

 On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to Bates Elementary. We want you to know that we are excited and ready to teach your children. Our staff values the students, parents and this wonderful community.

 In order for our school to be great, there must be a close working relationship between teachers, parents, and the community. Lines of communication must be open for a positive climate to prevail. Please feel free to contact the administration, staff, PTA, Chinese council or Community Council members if you have questions or concerns. By doing this, we will better meet the needs of our students and provide an excellent education for your children.

 It is crucial that students have a successful experience as they begin their educational careers, and we want to do all we can to achieve this goal. Education is one of our largest and most significant enterprises. Its importance in our society cannot be understated. Education not only serves students, but also our society as whole, let us join together and provide the best possible education for our children! We, at Bates Elementary, look forward to working with you and your children.


 Ms. Wright
