Bear Fair and School Board News


We are so excited for you to be a part of our Bear Fair on Sept. 28th from 5:00 - 7:00. This is a fun time for our students to interact with their teachers and play games, throw balls to dunk a few of our teachers, attend a cake walk and auction, play on 6 inflatables and the list continues! More information about this fun night is below! I hope to see you there!

Collierville Schools will be opening a 6th elementary school in the Fall of 2018. We are growing in Collierville and many of our elementary schools are getting crowded. The new elementary school will be at the site of Schilling Farms Middle. Schilling Farms Middle will move to the old high school building and the high school will, of course, move into its new building in the Fall of 2018. This is an exciting time for Collierville schools but with it brings changes that can be difficult. There will be two rezoning meetings held in the Collierville High School Auditorium for parents to find out what areas will be impacted by the rezoning, and meet the principal of the new elementary school Georgette Cleaves (many of you may already know her as she has been one of the assistant principals at Schilling Farms Middle). The first meeting is Sept. 28th at 6:00 and yes it is the same night as our Bailey Fair, but Mr. A. said that would be fine, because there is another date that parents can come or you can come to the fair and then go to the meeting! The second meeting is on October 5th at 6:00 at the same location. Collierville Schools will present the rezoning plans, will take parent questions, and after hearing from parents the Collierville School Board will make the decisions surrounding rezoning.

Our Grandparent's Day was Sept. 8th and was a huge success! Thank you to Robyne McBride for heading up this day and all the PTA and parent volunteers who helped make this day happen. It takes a team to do everything that is needed to serve over 400 grandparents and I so appreciate all of our parents who help make this day happen. I received so many compliments about our school, teachers and staff and our PTA! We have a great school and we love hearing that we are doing things right at BSE. Thank you again for all your help because without your participation days like this would not happen!

Please call on me if you need anything! My email is and the school number is 901-853-6380.

To a great school year!
