2022-2023 SCHOOL YEAR


Dear Families of Belle Elementary,

Welcome to Belle Elementary School! I am excited about the upcoming year and feel very fortunate to be at a school that has a reputation of providing a caring and high quality education to the students in our community.

Belle has a dedicated staff as well as parent volunteers that form the foundation for student success. I encourage you to get involved and volunteer in a classroom or other school program.

Parents play the most important role in their child’s education. As a parent you are your child’s first teacher, and you are their consistent teacher throughout their educational years. To help your child’s academic success it is important to be reading a minimum of 20 minutes a day, encouraging school attendance and reviewing graded assignments with your child. Please check for school correspondence from the school daily.

Keeping updated with your child’s school has never been easier using the Maries R-II App! You can find the free App in the App Store, it is titled Maries R-2 School District. This App will be used to keep you up to date with school activities and communication. The elementary school also post on the school Facebook page.

I encourage you to maintain an active role in your student’s education. A strong, communicating partnership between family and school during your child’s education is very important to their success. Should you have changes in phone, email, or address during the school year, please call and let the office know.
