Welcome to Bates Elementary, one of two Young Fives through Second Grade buildings in the Dexter Community School district.
Our mission is to provide a rich, stimulating, diverse, and caring learning environment. Everyone here celebrates the growth and success of our students. Everyone here cares and takes the time to invest in the individuals that walk through our doors. However, we cannot do this important work alone! Bates is very fortunate and thankful for the support it receives from incredibly engaged parents, families, and partnerships from throughout the district.
