Buckland-Shelburne Elementary School (BSE) is the largest elementary school within the Mohawk Trail Regional School District and serves approximately 220 students from pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade.

At BSE, we set high expectations for all students, not only as learners but also as thinkers, problem solvers, and citizens. We acknowledge and celebrate our students’ achievements, while also teaching perseverance and resilience. At BSE, children learn to work hard and to love learning.

Welcome to Buckland-Shelburne Elementary School

Dear BSE Parents/Guardians: 

On behalf of the entire BSE staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school. The staff and I are looking forward to a successful year of partnership with each of you to assure your child grows and learns in a supportive, enriching, and safe environment. 

The primary years are an exciting time for the growth and development of your child. We recognize parents as the first teachers, and know when you engage with your child in the learning process, everyone benefits. Working alongside you and our community, we have created a campus that is a refuge for these precious children. My door is always open; please contact me if you wish to discuss anything.
