Principal's Page

My name is Mike Brandt, I am the Principal of Truman Benedict Elementary School. I am excited to have this opportunity to offer a brief overview of our school. TBES is a TK-5 learning community where school and home families work together to support our kids in the process of growing into happy, healthy, well-adjusted adults.
Working as Professional Learning Communities, or PLCs, our teacher teams are coordinate to offer great first instruction and a myriad of supports, such as targeted academic intervention and PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports), helping kids in both academic and social realms. We are blessed with a strong PTA, as well as a foundation (FREF), whose hard working efforts enhance classrooms and make our STEAM/Maker Lab, the Innovation Station possible.
Our Mission Poster (below) offers insight into our priorities for kids. The word cloud represents the traits teachers see in our students and most want to foster. To the left is our "Mission Motto: "Inspiring a capable, confident, community of thinkers," which is our goal.
