A Message from the Principal, Mrs. Dingle

Mrs. Dingle PrincipalIt is an honor to be the principal of Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary School.  I come to you with over 18 yrs of experience working in diverse populations.  I am excited about the work that we are doing so far this year and anxious to see what we can do in the next coming months.

So far it has been a phenomenal year for all of our students, parents, teachers and staff at Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary School.  We have provided a vast amount of opportunities to our students in the first half of the school year to be life long learners.  With our combined efforts, all of our children can and will exceed our expectations of reaching their maximum potential.

Please use this website as a resource to find out pertinent information about upcoming events at Bethune. Our website will also be used to celebrate our students successes throughout the school year.
