Meet the School Counselor

Mrs. B. Puckette

I am proud to say that I grew up in the Naruna area and graduated from William Campbell High School. I received a BS degree in Elementary Education from Longwood University and a MS degree in Counseling from Lynchburg College. After teaching at Gladys Elementary School for nine years I became the School Counselor at Brookneal and Gladys Elementary Schools. I am married, with three adult children and six grandchildren. I enjoy reading, traveling, antique collecting, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.

    This is  an awesome year of positive learning experiences with our students at BES!I enjoy working with the students, their families and our talented, dedicated faculty.Our strong commitment to children and their families involves providing support services through the Guidance Program. The Guidance Program strives to assist all students to reach their full potential. This goal will be accomplished through a partnership with students, teachers, parents and the community throughout their educational experience.

  • BES Veterans Day Program

                     Veterans Day is a time when we pause to honor the brave men and women who have served our country in the armed forces.  We are privileged to recognize their service at our annual Veterans Day Program on Wednesday, November 11 at 1:00 p.m. The American Legion Post 52 will serve as an Honor Guard and our students will present a patriotic program in the gymnasium.

     The faculty and students of Brookneal Elementary School cordially invite everyone to attend the Veterans Day program.  Please extend the invitation to veterans, friends, family, coworkers and neighbors. Everyone is encouraged to wear red, white, and blue as a show of patriotism.
