My vision for Bardmoor Elementary is 100% student success. My mission for Bardmoor is to educate and prepare each student for further education, career and life. It is important for our students to not just be ready for middle school when they leave Bardmoor, but to also be lifelong learners prepared to take on high school, college and careers. Working together as a school, parents and community we will have successful students!

I am very happy to be serving the students and parents of Bardmoor Elementary. It is my belief that all students can be academically successful through the united supportive efforts of the family and school. The Parent/Teacher communication is a critical part of that support. I appreciate the parental involvement I see and encourage others to make that commitment whether it is attending PTA meetings and after school programs or volunteering in classrooms. Parental involvement equates to student success.
Should you have questions or concerns you may call or visit me at school. I maintain an open door policy and welcome all parents who stop by. Together we DO make a difference.
|8:35 a.m. to 2:35 p.m. M-F|
Our new school year begins August 19th, 2013. There will be no early release Wednesdays this year. School hours are 8:35 a.m. to 2:35 p.m. M-F. Breakfast starts at 8:05 a.m. Breakfast students should arrive no later than 8:15. First bell rings at 8:25 a.m. and students are considered tardy if they are not in their seats at 8:35 a.m. We request whenever possible to set appointments for after student hours since it disrupts instruction to pull students during class time.
|FREE breakfast and lunch for ALL Bardmoor students|
|All Bardmoor students qualify for FREE breakfast and lunch. No application process will be required at the school level. The State of Florida is participating in a new program with the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs aimed at streamlining eligibility for free meals - Community Eligibility Option (CEO). |
|Pinellas County Schools (PCS) via the Office of Strategic Partnerships is excited about the launching of P2ACC (Preparing Parents to Advocate for their Children and Community) Parent Academy. |

The easiest way to complete this requirement is to provide the link within the parentís page of your school website with a statement that the report is there for their information. If you do not have an individual website, then you can mail or email the links to your parents. |
The report can be found on the district website under Business/Accounting/ Publications/2012-13 School Financial Report. Alternatively, the link below will take you directly to the School Report:
