5th Grade Final Walk
5th Grade Walk
Join us in celebrating our 5th Grade class as they walk the halls as a Bell Prairie student for the last time on Friday, May 26th. Please park on the playground and check in through the library doors from 11:00-11:20.
Kindergarten through Fourth Grade classes will begin to line the hallways at 11:20. We will “release” parents to fill the hallways at 11:20. Parents will be able to pick up siblings prior to the walk from 11:30-11:40. 5th grade students will go back to their classrooms and be dismissed from class once the walk concludes.
For all parents planning to attend, if you are not currently checked into our Raptor security system, please come up to the school and do that prior to the last day of school.

Construction UPDATE at Bell Prairie!
The Shade Structure is Complete!
The shade structure and concrete slab are complete! It was the prefect location to house our DJ and dance floor at the Hoedown this month. Phase 2 for the 23-24 school year will hopefully include purchasing large outdoor tables for students to use both during recess and as a class.
Thank you to all our parents and our PTA for making playground improvements happen. We were able to install a 20 x 30 large shade structure with a concrete slab on our back playground.
