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

    Bell Elementary Families,

         We want to take this opportunity to wish all of our families a happy and healthy new year!  We have had a great first semester and we look forward to a tremendous rest of the year.  As our students are transitioning back into their academic routines, here are some ideas to be sure your child is successful at Bell:

    •  Monitor your students' school work.  A good opening question to help students communicate about their school experience is to ask, "What did you learn in school today?"
    •  Make sure your children get to school every day on time.  The more students are in school, the higher their achievement.  Poor attendance is often the first step to students being unsuccessful at school.
    •  Reward your students' efforts.  The best way to motivate further effort is to notice it, praise it, and reward it.
    • Talk up the idea of going to college.  Having students set higher education as a target early in their lives will help them set ambitious goals for their academic progress as they proceed through school.

     Finally, be involved.  Parent involvement in their children's education, may be the top factor leading to student success.  At Bell, we offer many opportunities to be involved in your students' education.  Please join us whenever you can.


    Mrs. Blakney, Principal

    Mrs. Fraser, Assistant Principal
