FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2019!!!


Join us as we celebrate Dr Seuss! Friday morning in the front hallway, donate $1 to the Bells Ferry Foundation, get a special surprise and dress as your favorite Dr. Seuss Character for the day!

Our class will exchange valentines on Thursday, February 14th. If your child wants to give valentines, please have your child write his/her own name on each card. We have 12 girls and 8 boys participating in the exchange.

Sometimes reading the names of other students can be difficult, so students should not address the cards to friends. Students should not bring special cards or gifts for their best friends in class. We do not want any student to feel hurt or left out when valentines are shared. Students should not bring their valentines to school before February 14th. We will provide bags for students to collect their valentines. You do not need to purchase a special container or box.

If families plan to send in class snacks instead of valentine cards, please contact us ahead of time. We have students in our class with food allergies.




Picture Day

Picture Day is scheduled for Tuesday, February 5th. All students will be photographed for the class picture regardless of picture purchase.

Individual photographs are also available. Look for more information coming soon.

It is time to mark your calendars!  We have some important dates coming up!

As always, we appreciate our Bells Ferry Families.  Please remember to follow us on Facebook @BellsFerry and Twitter @bellsferryelem.

Can you believe 2019 is already here?  We hope you all had a wonderful New Year and have been able to spend some quality time with family and friends.  Our teachers returned today and are getting things ready for our students to return!  The halls seem so empty without our amazing students.  We miss them all and cannot wait to see them back here on Monday, January 7th.

Parents and Bells Ferry Families, please remember we operate our building on a bell to bell schedule.  School begins at 7:50 a.m. and ends at 2:20 p.m.  We do our best to honor each instructional minute in class in order to maximize learning, and we greatly appreciate your support in doing the same.  Thank you for helping us instill the value of learning time with our students by making sure your child is present from 7:50 to 2:20 each day.

Again, we hope you all had a wonderful Winter Break with your loved ones.  We look forward to the rest of this year as we continue to build upon our vision: “Bells Ferry bandits learn, lead, and leave a legacy.” We will see you all soon!
