Welcome to Bedford Village Elementary School! On behalf of the entire school community, I welcome you to our website.  Here you will find important information about our caring school community, curricular programs and learning opportunities, and school events.  This site also celebrates our enthusiastic students, dedicated staff, and engaged parents who make BVES a special place.

The BVES staff takes pride in supporting students’ academic, social and emotional, and physical growth.  We are dedicated to creating engaging and rigorous educational experiences that foster curiosity and love for learning. As one of the five elementary schools in the Bedford Central School District, our teachers work collaboratively with colleagues across the district to develop a challenging curriculum with common experiences.

The parent-school partnership is vital in creating a caring, nurturing, and challenging learning environment for our children.  BVES thrives on the support of BVESA, our parent-teacher association. Through this partnership, our students benefit from grade level and school experiences that enrich and extend the curriculum.  Some of these experiences include author visits, artists in residence programs, and assemblies. I encourage you to visit the BVESA page to learn how you can get involved. 

Please take the time to periodically visit the Bedford Village Elementary School website.  It is a wonderful way to stay connected and informed with what’s happening in our school.
