Bellville Elementary Newsletter
What a year!! Thank you so much for your support, patience, and understanding through this last year!! It is hard to believe we are in the home stretch, and we would not have made it without you!
There are a lot of end of the year activities planned, which I will not be posting in the newsletter for safety reasons. Please contact your child's teacher if you have any questions about any of these.
Class lists for the 2021-2022 school year will be posted via REMIND, and on the front/back doors of the building on August 13th after 2:00 p.m. Supply lists for each grade level have also been added to the newsletter for those folks who would like to get an early start on sales.
I am getting a lot of questions about what school is going to look like next year, and the truth is, we are hoping for normal, but we do not know. We will be following any guidance and mandates that we are given, and we will communicate any changes with you as soon as we know anything.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I hope everyone has a fantastic summer with your family and friends!
