  • DECEMBER Letter to Parents: Mrs. Blakney, Principal & Mrs. Fraser, Asst. Principal

    Superhero Bell Families!


        Season's Greetings to everyone.  We have had a great November and December is already here.  We have a few weeks before the celebration time is here.  Third graders have seen a 59% growth on their Scholastic Reading Inventory test, and the rest of our grade levels are continuing to grow.  Thank you for your continued support in making sure your child reads at least 20 minutes each night.  As your child's first teacher, the best way to encourage your child to read is to show him/her that reading is important to you.  You may set aside a family reading time, then share with each other what each family member has read.  This will help students increase their comprehension and summarizing skills, both of which are needed to be a successful reader.

            Student attendance on a regular basis is essential throughout the school year for children to maximize their learning.  A no-refferal and Perfect Attendance Bash is being planned for our students.  More details will be sent home with the students who will participate.  We will continue to honor our students on a monthly basis, and we need your assistance in helping your child be a part of the celebration by getting them to school regularly and on-time.

        Do not forget with the weather change, your student should be warmly dressed in coats, hats, gloves, boots, etc.  We want our children to be comfortable when they travel to school and when they go out to recess.

        Thank you to everyone who supported our Turkey Bingo.  This was a great opportunity to make connections with other families, as well as support our B-CAT store.

        Lastly, during this season, spend time with family and friends.  Carve time out of your personal schedule to relieve or create fond memories with the ones you love and are grateful for.

        Have a great remainder of the year, and enjoy a Prosperous New Year!


    Your Administrative Team,


    Mrs. Blakney, Principal


    Mrs. Fraser, Assistant Principal
