A Letter From Principal Browning:
Thank you for visiting Bale Elementary’s website! It is indeed an honor to serve as principal at Bale where every day is a great day for learning. We have a strong team of teachers and amazingly smart and talented students at Bale. Although we are living in uniquely uncertain times, we are continuing to advocate for an optimal learning environment for all Bale Bobcats. Our focus is centered on being resilient in our efforts to carry the torch of building RELATIONSHIPS through a focus on learning, camaraderie, and results-driven collaboration; providing RIGORous and viable curriculum implementation, applying the RELEVANCE of new and previously learned skills, and demonstrate growth through our individual and collective REFLECTION of our practices. We are the torch bearers and must focus our energy on how we each can ignite the torch within our Bobcat family to be CHAMPIONS of lifelong learning.
This school year, our mindset is that of an Olympian. Preparing via laser focused training to rise as a CHAMPION, seeking Olympic Gold. In the Olympics, the five rings represent the continents from which the athletes hail. We are using the rings as a symbol of a Blazing CHAMP. Even though our mascot is the Bobcat, I have requested all of our Bale Family to live as a "Blazing Champion" each day. Show up to Bale as a "Blazing Champion," sharing the blaze with all who come into contact with a Bale Elementary Bobcat. When the time is appropriate and the pandemic has subsided, we welcome you to visit our school to witness our thriving learning environment. While here, we invite you to a scavenger hunt of our attributes of a Blazing Bale Champion:
C - Courage to collaborate as a team.
H - Honor our collective commitments to our Bobcats in every decision made.
A - Attitude must be team centered, solutions oriented, student focused, and results driven.
M - Motivation begins with self. Remember your "why" and allow it to inspire your work.
P - Perseverance makes us stronger. Where there's discomfort, there's growth. Have grit and push through!
Roxie Browning, Principal
