Welcome to Ballentine Elementary School, home of the Ballentine Bears! 

I have been an educator in District 5 for twenty-seven years at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. I joined the administrative team at BES fourteen years ago serving four years as Assistant Principal and ten as Principal. I love being a part of the Ballentine family where our motto is “We are Ballentine!” and our theme is All In!” We have an amazing school where students, their families and staff work and grow together to strengthen our culture of learning and high expectations; a culture of excellence where individual talents and differences create a diverse, positive learning environment and an exceptional educational foundation.  I am always excited about the opportunities that a new school year brings. We value your input and support, and encourage your involvement as we work together to make this our BESt year yet!  My door is always open to you, so please feel free to stop by, call (476-4500), or email me (rbright@lexrich5.org).

This is my sixth year as an administrator at the BESt school around. Prior to coming here, I taught students with exceptional needs within Lexington District Two in West Columbia and Buncombe County School District in Weaverville, North Carolina. At Ballentine, I am lucky to be around an awesome group of students and faculty on a daily basis. I am always eager to greet our students each day and hear what extraordinary things they have to share. It is my goal to do everything I possibly can to ensure that every student is striving to reach their absolute BESt while here at Ballentine. Whether it be students or parents, it is my pleasure to serve others. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns or questions you should have throughout the school year.

Greetings, Ballentine Elementary School Students and Families!  I am excited to serve as a member of the BESt Administration Team this year.  After 23 years as an educator, I finally get a chance to work with the age group I originally trained to teach--- elementary school students. I have taught for 20 years and served as an administrator for the past three years for students from every grade level at Newberry Middle School, Dutch Fork Middle School and the Academy for Success.  As a member of the BES family, I am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you, as we work together to help all of your children reach their full potential--one child at a time. Please contact me with any questions, concerns or to share updates on your child at any time. Thank you for sharing your child with us. Let's make this the BESt year ever!
