Last night the Governor of California issued a stay at home order for all Californians. While we know that the current situation may cause some anxiety, please know that, we will continue to support our students, their families, and our community by continuing to provide alternative learning opportunities, guidance to families on local resources, programs to help our first responders, healthcare and essential services workers find childcare so that they can continue to serve our community, seamless food deliveries to youth from 0-18 years old, and other services that will be necessary in the upcoming days and weeks. Our goal is to keep our community safe and healthy. Thank you, in advance, for your help and patience, as we work through this unprecedented time.
Please stop by Bess Maxwell School between 11am and 12pm to get lunch and breakfast for the next morning!

Mrs. Diane Wiese
Welcome to Bess Maxwell School!
I am very excited to be a part of the Bess Maxwell team!
This is my 23rd year in education and 8th year as an administrator. I have been a teacher/administrator at Joe Hamilton School, Margaret Keating School, Mountain School, Smith River School and now Bess Maxwell.
I was born and raised here in Crescent City and am very proud to call it home. After graduating from Del Norte High School, I served for three years on active duty in the Army and six years in the Air National Guard.
We here at Bess Maxwell want families to be involved in the education of their children. We welcome volunteers in the classroom - please stop in the office to find out how you can become a volunteer! We always need help in many different areas, i.e., classroom, office, and parent committees.
The Bess Maxwell staff are a warm and welcoming group of people and I look forward to meeting you.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office at 464-0310.
Diane Wiese, Principal
