At Bedford Elementary School, we will:

  • Promote and enhance the value of respect for other’s possessions, ideas, and beliefs.

  • Identify, affirm, and utilize the strengths of others by clearly communicating individual and school-wide expectations for academics and behavior.

  • Consistently model positive behavior through accountability, tolerance, patience, attitude, and the belief in the commitment to the growth and development of our students.

  • Identify and affirm all students’ academic strengths and talents by continually challenging students to meet high expectations.
