Welcome to Bill Arp Elementary where our goal is to build academic excellence in all students. We have a long-standing tradition of building a strong learning community among students, parents, staff and the business community. The 2019-2020 school year is full of possibilities and we look forward to welcoming our students back home!

Bill Arp is committed to providing the opportunity for students to develop the skills necessary to meet the challenges of our modern technological society. We provide Science Technology Engineering Art and Math (STEAM) integrated instruction and activities throughout the year. Each May we celebrate with a school-wide STEAM day where many community service organizations and businesses provide real world experiences for students to see how STEAM skills are applied in various careers and daily life.

We encourage you to become an active part of the Bill Arp learning community. Maintaining frequent and open communication with your child’s teachers and school staff is an integral part of the educational experience. We also have a wonderful PTA and School Council that welcome your membership and participation. Our PTA actively provides volunteers, personnel, and financial support to help meet student needs throughout the school year.

Opportunities for student involvement are plentiful at BAES. We offer many after school activities and clubs such as First Lego League Robotics, Chorus, Art, Drama and Gravity Games. We also have an After School Program (ASP) that provides a safe environment for our students. Homework time, snack, play and other activities provide a fun and safe place after school. The one time registration fee is $10.00, with each afternoon stay costing $8.00.

Attendance and punctuality are such important factors in academic success. Our building opens at 7:15 a.m. to receive students. Morning procedures begin at 7:45 a.m. and students are ready to start their learning by 8:00 a.m. School is dismissed at 2:45 each day. It is important for students to be in attendance and to minimize tardies and early check-outs as much as possible as instruction time is valuable. Help your child develop this important life skill by reinforcing the importance of attendance and punctuality.

We look forward to a fun filled year where students will shine with success!
