Buckland-Shelburne Elementary School (BSE) is the largest elementary school within the Mohawk Trail Regional School District and serves approximately 248 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.

Happy spring break! A well deserved rest for our whole community. I hope you are able to slow down and play with your child(ren). We will close the office at BSE this week, email is the best way to contact me if you have any urgent needs. We enjoyed our short time back together before break. The Superintendent came for a visit and we made short video to share our excitement about being back together.

    Mohawk Trail - Hawlemont Literacy Planning Survey for Caregivers

    The Mohawk Trail and Hawlemont Regional School system is planning to rework our approach to literacy in grades pre kindergarten through eighth so that our programs, teaching approach, and support for students are consistent in all schools and are based on research about how children learn to read.

    We would like the input of caregivers to support this process. Please complete these questions based on your child's experiences in the Mohawk Trail-Hawlemont System. The survey will be open until Friday, April 23, at 5:00 p.m.

    This is a great time to talk with your child (or children) about their experiences in English language arts/literacy at school. If you are unsure how to answer a question, please ask them for their input.

    The Class of 2023 is selling Mohawk Gear!

    Our friends at Mohawk Trail Regional School (MTRS) are hosting a pop-up gear store to benefit the Class of 2023. It's the perfect opportunity for our sixth grade families to grab a gift for your child before they leave BSE (we will miss them!) and head to MTRS to blaze their trail to graduation!

    The gear store is open now through April 27, so don't miss out on your opportunity to get your swag and support our students!
