Bel Air Elementary’s mission is “Believe, Achieve, Empower, Succeed.” It’s a mantra that principal Dyann Mack keeps in mind every day.

 

“When I first came to Bel Air, we looked at our mission and talked about what we want for each person who walks in the door,” says Mack, who has been at the school for seven years. “We focus on creating opportunities to support each other.”

 

She attributes the school’s success to a supportive PTA and a team of teachers who come up with creative ideas for the classroom.

 

“One thing that makes Bel Air a great school and an easy community to lead is that we’re all in it together,” she says.
