About Us

Dear Jesse S. Bobo Elementary School Families,


I could not be happier that I am able to WELCOME you and your student(s) back to the 2020-2021 school year! 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. Our school theme will once again be The Power of I CAN! At Jesse Bobo Elementary, we believe in the power of I CAN and that all 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 poguecw@spart6.org .


Your partner in education,

-        to remember that each child is extremely special

-        to always love your child and treat him/her as I would want my children to be treated while in elementary school

-        to make all decisions that are in the best interest of the children in our school

-        to work with you to help your child receive the education that he/she needs and deserves.
