At Bellville Elementary we are problem solvers, respectful, kind to all and ready to learn. Go Colts!

Dear Families,

It is so hard to believe how quickly this school year has gone! In the blink of an eye May will be here and the 2022-2023 school year will be coming to an end. Thank you so much for all of the support you have given your child(ren) throughout the year!

There are many different activities scheduled for the remainder of the year, so please make sure you look at the Dates to Remember, and check your child's folder frequently for any notes being sent home from school.

One final newsletter for the school year will be put out at the beginning of May to make sure you do not miss any important information. Thank you again for your support and kindness throughout this year!! Bellville Elementary is a truly special place because of each one of you!


Mrs. Swank, Principal
