Principal's Message

Welcome to Bailey Station Elementary School…Where Children are Loved and Love to Learn!
I am beyond excited and so honored to be the Principal of this wonderful school.  Although this is my first year as the Principal, I have been the Assistant Principal since the building opened in 2005.  My two children both attended BSE for kindergarten through 5th grade so I have experienced Bailey Station as parent and a leader.  There is no place like it!  I love this precious school and love the faculty, staff, students, and families who fill it.
While we are facing uncertain times due to the pandemic, do not worry.  While that is easy to say, I want you to know we have a plan to meet your child’s needs to the very best of our ability.  We do not take this task lightly and continue to work hard!  Let me tell you a little secret about us:  We THRIVE in difficult times! Our faculty and staff have proven this many times over throughout our 15 years as a school.  First, we love your children. We want to create the safest environment possible for them.  Second, we are identifying those essential standards that your students must know in order to be successful throughout their school career.  We are working on making sure there is CLARITY among our staff because clarity removes fear!
We feel so honored that you trust your most valuable possessions with us every day.  Oh how we have missed them!  You just have no idea! 
I am here if you need me.  We will get through this together!  We are committed to academic excellence. I look forward to meeting you and working with you as a team to ensure your child has a wonderful school year.  Remember, it is a mindset!  We must remain positive, encouraging, and supportive of one another. 
Deanna Jones
Your Principal
