At Birchwood Elementary School we strive to develop knowledgeable, skilled, compassionate, principled, and action-oriented young people. We want Birchwood students to become internationally-minded individuals who help create a better world.

To that end, we commit ourselves to:

  • Honor diversity and individuality in a safe learning environment
  • Build a community where students, families, and staff collaborate with each other to help students realize their academic, creative, social, and physical potential
  • Act with integrity and honesty
  • Take on new challenges, learn to be resourceful and resilient, and use these skills to become lifelong learners
  • Become caring, compassionate, and respectful people who have a global understanding of the world
  • Make balanced and healthy choices in our lives to achieve well-being for ourselves and others
  • Develop teamwork skills and share our learning with others

Emergency and Safety Information

Keeping our students and staff safe at school is a top priority. Bellingham Public Schools coordinates with all local emergency responders to ensure our procedures and plans for fire, earthquake, lockdowns and other drills are current and reflect best practices for student safety.
