Lashurn Williams, Principal at Bolton Edwards Elementary and Middle School: “Earlier this month, students participated in role playing and other activities that drove home why bullying is hurtful and unacceptable. BEEMS Rangers pledge to respect others and their property, and to exercise courtesy. We are proud to be bully-free at Bolton-Edwards Elementary/Middle School."

"The sorority sisters of the Tau Upsilon chapter of Zeta Phi Beta, Inc. Sorority began supporting our school a year ago, this month. They have been a wonderful school partner, providing items for our classrooms, school supplies for students and participating in Read Across America. Last month they delivered over 1,200 items for students: ruled paper, construction paper, glue, scissors, and much more. These items are available to students as they need to replenish their supplies. Cassandra Bishop, who teaches 6th grade social studies and science at BEEMS is a member. Thank you, ladies, for all you do!”
