Principal's Message

Principal Jackie MacCaleb

Dear BPES Families,

Welcome to Battlefield Park Elementary School (BPES), home of the Bobcats. I am honored to serve as your principal. This is my 11th year at BPES and my 22nd year in education! I grew up in Orange County, Virginia, graduated from Longwood University in 2002, and received my master's 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, watching my children participate in sports, and spending time with my husband, family, and friends.

As we continue on our educational journey together, I look forward to working with all our students and families. As we begin this school year, I am excited to welcome our new families! I will continue to focus on creating a positive and safe learning environment for everyone. In addition, my goal is also to work with our entire staff at BPES to ensure our reputation of excellence continues 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.
