Greetings Bethune’s Best and Brightest,
On behalf of our experienced and ardent administrative staff, we would like to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year at Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Middle School, “Where the Best and the Brightest Attend, Teach, Serve, and Learn.”
I am Frank Davies and it is with honor that I accept the opportunity to be the Principal at Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Middle School and follow in the footsteps of Dr. Gail Garrett. I am excited to continue the positive progress and work with our super support staff and tenacious teachers to ensure our school continues to be safe, responsible, and respectful and to ensure academic achievement for all students.
Our Mustang PRIDE will be intentional and focused on student learning. All students will know, understand, and be able to be Prepared and Productive, Responsible, Innovative, Determined, and Engaged.
Students will know what they are learning, how they are going to learn it, why they are learning it, and how they will demonstrate the learning. We will support our student’s personal and academic growth and manage our resources equitably to ensure all students achieve. Bethune’s Best and Brightest will be well prepared to become Fremont’s Finest.
Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune said it best, “I leave you love. I leave you hope. I leave you the challenge of developing confidence in one another. I leave you a thirst for education. I leave you a respect for the use of power. I leave you faith. I leave you racial dignity. I leave you a desire to live harmoniously with your fellow men. I leave you finally, a responsibility to our young people.”
