Jill Clay, Principal
Birch Elementary Family/ Friends-
I am so excited to begin our journey towards success together. 
The 2019-2020 school year creates a great opportunity to make a lasting difference in the lives of the children
of the Pine Tree ISD community. 
In my experience, a special culture of achievement with TEA distinction recognition, UIL academic
competition championships, and extensive development of character education and learning opportunities
is all attainable through a sincere belief in the power of relationships and the constant search for positive
overall growth. 
At BES, I am asking for all you to do your part in establishing an exemplary learning environment for our
students and a place of pride for you to call home. 
Birch First-
