Principal's Message

Principal Jackie MacCaleb

Dear Parents and Friends,

Welcome to Battlefield Park Elementary School (BPES), home of the Battlefield Bobcats. I am honored to serve as your principal. This is my 8th year at BPES and my 18th year in education! I grew up in Orange County, Virginia, graduated from Longwood University in 2002, and received my masters degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. I taught fourth and fifth grade for two years in Orange County before coming to Hanover in 2004. I spent five years teaching at Washington Henry Elementary before moving to middle school. Prior to coming to BPES, I had the privilege of serving as a senior teacher at Chickahominy Middle School. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, attending UVA sporting events, and spending time with my husband, two children, family, and friends.

As we continue on our educational journey together, I look forward to working with all our students and family members. Although this year looks very different from past years, my goal will continue to be one that focuses on building relationships with all of our families and students in order to create a positive and safe learning environment for everyone. In addition, I will continue to work with our entire staff to ensure our reputation of excellence continues to by providing differentiated instruction that is rigorous and relevant for all students.

As principal, my door is always open, and I welcome your input. Please feel free to email or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet! You can reach me by email or by phone at (804) 723-3600. 

Sincerely,
Jackie McCaleb
