  • Dear Students and Parents,

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! Cartersville Elementary School enjoys a history of providing students with a rich academic learning experience.  With a dedicated teaching staff, rigorous academic expectations, and high quality programs, services, and support, I am confident that CES provides students with the knowledge and skills to be ready for the world in which they will inherent.  With parent and community support, we will ensure that the students of CES will be successful, productive members of society.  Cartersville City School District prides itself on a long tradition of excellence in education and Cartersville Elementary School expects nothing less for our young Canes.

    The teachers and I believe in our students’ academic success, but we also believe in providing students with opportunities to demonstrate qualities of character.  We believe in teaching the whole child to best prepare them for a prosperous future.  We believe in building relationship with all stakeholders.  Working together, we will accomplish great things for our students and community.  We will prepare our students for the challenges of progress and change through development of the skills necessary to become lifelong learners in order that they may live successful and productive lives. We value your involvement in your child’s education.  Please visit our school to experience the impact that CES is making towards your child’s academic success.  We also invite you to join our wonderful PTC.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.  Working together, we can make our school an even better place for students to grow and learn.

    We Believe In CES,

    Melissa Bates

    Principal, CES
