Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten Registration
This year the State of California is implementing new staffing requirements for transitional kindergarten classes the upcoming school year. If you have a child who will be entering transitional kindergarten or kindergarten next school year, I’d encourage you to begin the school registration process. To prepare for next year's changes and to ensure that your child has the best educational experience, we need to know how many students we’ll have for the upcoming school year in our TK and K programs. Registration packets for next year will be available at all of our district schools. Remember, the registration packets must be submitted to your child’s home school. For more information on registration or to find which school your child may attend, call us at 707-464-6141.

Mrs. Diane Wiese
Welcome to Bess Maxwell School!
I am very excited to be a part of the Bess Maxwell team!
This is my 26th year in education and 11th 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 our community 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.
The Bess Maxwell staff are a warm and welcoming group of people and I look forward to working with you.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office at 464-0310.
