Principal's Welcome to Blue Mountain Elementary East

A healthy relationship between community and school is a
vital part of a successful educational program. The
community and school work together to strengthen and compliment each other.
Our community and parent involvement programs include an active and supportive
PTO, a partners in education program known as the Eagle Foundation, and before/after
school day care sponsored by our Recreation Commission.
The faculty and staff of Blue Mountain Elementary East are dedicated to working with
pupils and parents to achieve the potential of each child. We strive to provide an
educational experience that will encourage a positive attitude toward school, learning and self. Our program is designed to provide a firm foundation of the basic skills in an environment of successful learning.
