Letter from the Superintendent

Happy spring parents!

Just a reminder that Kindergarten registration is May 12 from 9:00 to 11:00 am at 256 Anderson Avenue. Appointments are not needed. If your child is already in our 4 year old program there is no need to register. If your child is already in our three year old program he/she will automatically be registered to our four year old program.

The lottery to choose three year old children for our preschool program will be held in central administration offices on May 16th @ 9:00 am. You will receive a letter of the results of that lottery sometime during the week. Those students not chosen for the open 25 seats will be placed on the waiting list in the order that their ticket was randomly chosen. Anyone registering after that date will have his/her name placed on the end of the list.

DISTRICT REMINDERS

Field Trips!

Field trips are upon us in all the schools. Please be aware of the chaperone guidelines which can be found on our webpages.

4th to 5th Grade Activities

The fourth to fifth grade activities are being held on May 24th all day long. We are excited that the students in the elementary schools will be spending the day at Bell Oaks with the fifth grade students. We think this is an excellent way for the students to get used to their new school. They will have lunch together, play games and meet their future teachers.
Many thanks to the three parent teacher organizations for helping us with this effort!

Collections Carnival

Don’t forget to come out and support our Collections Carnival on May 10th~ All items will be donated to the Joseph House as part of our service project activities. Click here!

PARCC Testing!

We have completed PARCC testing in the elementary schools without incident. While there was a day that we experienced technical glitches, it was on the part of Pearson and out of our control. But other than that we are in the clear.

Teacher Appreciation Week

The students spent this week appreciating the work our teachers do in all three buildings. We would be lost without them If you get a chance to see one of them say “Thank you” it means a lot.

Multicultural Fair

I hope you had an opportunity to attend our Multicultural Fair . Again it was a huge success. The pictures tell it all. We are still collecting recipes for our district cookbook. You can send a paper copy to the school or send an email copy to dlitwornia@bellmawrschools.org
