Bellevue Vision Statement:  Innovatively empowering students to achieve academic and personal excellence

Bellevue Elementary Mission Statement: To ensure that all students become contributing citizens who are critical thinkers and problem solvers ready for success in college and careers, by providing a rigorous learning environment based on the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS). Bellevue Dress Guidelines Students are to be neatly dressed and well groomed at all times. Certain styles of dress are considered to cause disruptions to the school day and will be dealt with accordingly. As it is impossible to include every fad or inappropriate item of clothing, the administration reserves the right to interpret the appropriateness of student dress. The following statements apply to all students at school and at any school sponsored event. Bottoms including shorts, pants, skirts, and skirted jumpers must be the appropriate size with the waist of the garment worn at the student’s natural waistline. Clothing that is too tight or too loose will not be considered appropriate. Belts are required if the garment has belt loops. Shorts and/or skirts must be no more than 2 inches above the knee. Shoes must be tied or properly fastened at all times. Headwear may not be worn on campus. This includes but is not limited to bandanas, rags, combs, hats, or hair curlers. Weather related headgear is permitted to and from school. Students/parents may request an exemption or special consideration based on bona fide religious beliefs and/or medical purposes or disabilities. School principal and/or superintendent may only grant exemptions.

Bellevue Events

Annual Haunted Hive SUCCESS!
What a great success with our annual Haunted Hive recently!  We invited families from other schools this year so more could enjoy some festive fun!  Thanks to all for another great event!

Important Dates

Bellevue's next PTO meeting will be held on Nov. 27, 2018 at 4:30pm Bellevue at Shea Cafeteria.  Come on out and hear all we want to do to support our school.

PARENT/STUDENT/TEACHER/ CONFERENCES:  will be held on November 6, 2018 daytime conferences and November 8, 2018 evening conferences.   Mark your calendar with your date and time for conference.  If you still need a date/time contact your child's teacher and they will set you up.  Report cards will be given out at this meeting along with hearing your child present their strengths and areas to improve in based on their data.  

Please send your child to school everyday!  Just 7 days absent equals two months of lost instruction.  18 days absent for the year means your child is chronically absent and this is a problem for their learning and meeting goals.
