Principal's Message

Diane Sconzo, Principal
Diane Sconzo, Principal
Bens Branch 
Elementary Welcomes you!

We are proud of our school and want to communicate the wonderful things that 

are happening. We have added 10 beautiful classrooms to welcome new students 

to our campus. Our educational programs are rigorous and challenging. We 

believe that all students can achieve at high levels and it is our responsibility to: 

set high expectations, promote academic rigor, develop strong character and to 

improve student engagement in a safe, student centered environment. 

BBE prides itself on providing many choices for our students, including: Honor 

Choir, Student Council, National Elementary Honor Society, Spanish club, Safety 

Patrol, and robotics.

We had much success with the initiation of Peacebuilders last year and we will 

continue Peacebuilders this year as well. It has guided our students to make 

positive choices, recognize differences, and celebrate accomplishments.

Parents are valued partners in our educational system and are encouraged to visit 

the school, volunteer, consult with our staff, and participate in school functions. 

We invite you to become an active member in our PTO. This is a highly respected 

organization that is actively involved in our school and supports many of our 

initiatives and programs.

Pride is abundant at BBE. We encourage each member of our educational system 

to work together to provide the highest quality educational program possible. 

I look forward to our most successful school year and I am excited to be your 



Diane Sconzo
