About Us

Dear Jesse S. Bobo Elementary School Families,


Welcome back to the 2021-2022 school year. We have so much to be excited about this year as we continue to be student centered and build upon family engagement. I hope you had a wonderful summer and are ready to begin a new year full of love and learning! When your child enters our building, it will be a safe/nurturing environment where every day is focused on safety, student achievement, character development, and their social/emotional well-being. Our teachers are excited to see their returning students and meet their new ones. We are also excited to announce our new school theme/motto this year being ENGAGE ~ INSPIRE ~ EDUCATE which was developed in partnership with students, teachers, and parents. We continue in the tradition that students CAN be readers, writers, problem solvers and communicators. It is an honor and privilege to educate your child, as they become the best student and person that they CAN be. As always, if you have any questions please contact the school at 864-576-2085 or email [email protected] .
