Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,

Welcome to Big Horn Elementary School!  Whether you are new to BHE or a returning Ram, we welcome you to a great year of learning and growing together..

My name is Kathy Powers and I’m looking forward our year ahead.  I know we will be sharing an active and event-filled year of learning and fun for all of our students and their families at Big Horn Elementary.

Here at Big Horn Elementary, we value high academic and behavior expectations for our students. Education and safety are our upmost priority.  The learning that takes place each day represents building blocks that ensure future successes. We take this responsibility very seriously and want you to know we are committed to the success of your child and every child. We ask that you carefully read the handbook and clearly communicate the academic standards and behavior expectations with your child.

We strongly believe that a child is most successful when they have an active support system; parents, elders, family, friends, and community. It is our hope that your child will reach new heights this year through the combined effort of home and school.  Our staff is always available and happy to meet with you to discuss concerns, hear praise, answer questions, or share thoughts regarding your child’s education. All staff emails use the following template:  first initial of first name, followed by their last name, for example Kathy Powers’ email is Please don’t hesitate to contact us by email, phone, note or coming in. 

As we journey down this road together there are some routines in place.  Thursday is our Spirit Day.  On Thursdays we will celebrate our school by wearing our school colors, maroon and gold or school clothing.  We also have a school bulletin called the “Monday Folder”.  It will be sent via email or printed every Monday as one way to ensure our families are aware of opportunities for involvement. 

Again, we are looking forward to the year ahead, and thank you in advance for your support and involvement.  The staff and I are honored to partner with you in the education of your child!



Kathy Powers, Principal
