Principal Newsletter #4: 2021- 2022 School Year
Thank you to everyone who participated in Back to School Night last week. It was great to see everyone in person and welcome you into classrooms. I would also like to thank the RUSD board members in attendance and our Superintendent, Kimberly McGrath for attending.
A huge THANK YOU to the Bel Aire PTA and Staff Appreciation team for feeding the teachers that evening. The teachers loved the taco truck and felt most appreciated.
While the Bel Aire specialists couldn't host you in their classrooms, they have prepared a video that allows you to get to know them and their programs. Enjoy!

4th and 5th GRADERS: BEL AIRE MATH CLUB IS BACK IN PERSON !
Bel Aire offers a weekly math club for highly motivated math students who want an enrichment opportunity. The club is run by Dr. Allan Gold with the assistance of a few helpers. The club is held on Tuesday mornings, 7:30-7:55am, beginning September 14, in the C Building classrooms.
The program provides a variety of math questions requiring logical reasoning and problem solving strategies. Students work together and should be fast and independent learners. The adults guide and direct students, as needed. Students have the opportunity to participate in contests they are prepared to solve based on their weekly problems.
If your child is interested in joining the club please email Dr. Gold at email@example.com by September 7th, so he will know whom to expect.
Thanks so much for your interest! We look forward to a year of fun math challenge!
