The P.O.W.E.R to DREAM BIG at Bell Elementary!
  • February Letter to Parents: Mrs. Blakney, Principal & Mrs. Fraser, Asst. Principal

    Bell Elementary Families,

        The Bell Elementary Faculty and Staff are committed to academic excellence for all students.  We will do whatever it takes to help each child reach academic success!  As our partner, we need your assistance to achieve our goal.  Do you read to your child each night?  No matter the age, all children benefit from hearing fluent readers.  This exposes your child to quality literature that he/she may not be able to read and provides a special bonding time for you and your chidd.  Your child may also possibly get chosen as the next Super Hero Reader for his/her class for the month of February as a result of reading for at least 20 minutes each night and recording it on his/her reading log.  Just 20 minutes a night can make a world of difference!

           You can also help with your child's academic success by having your child arrive on time each day.  There is a very high correlation between good attendance and good grades.  Being punctual is an important life skill that kids can learn at an early age.  This helps students begin their day on a positive note.

       Testing for t4th-6th grade will continue February 9-20, 2015.  Writing test will be administered February 24-26, 2015 for our 5th graders.  Please ensure that your child geta s good nights sleep and is here on time.

       We are asking your assistance in keeping our dismissal safe.  Modeling courtesy and obeying the rules helps everyone end their day in a positive manner.  Remember, our children are watching our character!

       Calling all PreK and Kingergarteners!  Tulsa Public Schools is now accepting pre-registration for PreK and Kindergarten for the 2015-16 school year.  Pre-register at

       Don't forget to support PTA and purchase your yearbook.  Thank you to all the Dads who came out to support your child at our Donuts for Dads breakfast.  The event was very successful.  We look forward to our event for Mom's in the near future.


    Your Administrative Team,

    Mrs. Blakney, Principal
