• Dear Bush K-8 parents, guardians, friends, partners, and students,

    On Tuesday night, June 26,  2018, the Birmingham City School Board Members approved reassignments, promotions and transfers for the 2018-19 school year. At that time it was confirmed that I will be leaving Bush K-8 at the end of this month to assume a Principal position at a middle school in Birmingham.

    I have had the privilege of meeting and working with so many wonderful people over the past five years. For me, this school has been an energetic and awesome place where leading, teaching and learning have taken place. Together we emphasized the importance of sharing, supporting each other, looking for positive learning opportunities for everyone, and collaborating with the whole school community to embrace each of the core subjects. This is an outstanding school that will continue to demonstrate the very best in education. The staff members put students first, the students are hard-working, capable learners, the partners are dedicated and committed, and the parents are supportive, friendly, and caring. I feel very fortunate to have been part of the Bush K-8 community and I will always cherish the time spent at this school learning with all of you!

    The new principal will be coming to a nurturing and welcoming environment and with so many great ideas to carry on the vision for Bush K-8.  Your support, along with the initiatives that the principal may bring, will be very beneficial to everyone and the community. Hopefully, you will have the opportunity to meet with the principal soon. 

    Thank you for your on-going support and cooperation. This will be my last Facebook Post and Message on Bush K-8 Website. I will miss the faculty, staff, partners, and most important, the students I have met over the past five years and will always treasure the many great memories we shared!

    Love each of you,

    Genita Matthews

    Former Principal of Ernest Bush K-8 School
