Great Day Panther Nation!

Welcome to the 2020 - 2021 school year! I am Mildred Posey, the new principal at J.S. Abrams Elementary School. I am thrilled to welcome you back to school. It is truly an honor for me to serve as your principal. Although I am new to Abrams, I have been in the district for over forty years. I am a native of Bessemer; therefore, I really love this community. I am looking forward to a great partnership with you and our scholars. I am privileged to work with an outstanding staff to make it a smooth transition for our students during this uncertain time. We are excited to work closely with you to ensure the success and well-being of all of our students. 

We have been working hard all summer to plan for a safe opening of school and to implement best practices to mitigate the risks associated with Covid-19. Our classrooms have been modified to increase social distancing, signage has been installed throughout the building to guide students.

J.S. Abrams is such a special place to learn and grow. Together with our dedicated staff, we strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe.  “Cultivating Excellence through Academics, Attendance, Attitude, & Activities” will continue to guide our mission to provide a rigorous and joyful school environment. Whether we are learning in person or remotely at home, our goal is to encourage active student engagement to foster a lifetime love for learning.

Partnering with families will be crucial this year as we face many obstacles due to the global pandemic. Please ensure the school has your updated contact information, so you all will stay informed about everything concerning J.S. Abrams Elementary School. We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our district website at: and our Facebook page for important updates and pertinent information.

This school year will be a success!
