Week 24: 02/16 – 02/19/2021

Dear Bella Mente Families,

Happy Friday! I hope you are all doing well.

Thank you to those that attended Cooking it up with Mr. Hank this week. It is really fun to watch families come together and cook! 

Next week Ms. McGraw will be leading the Parent Workshop on Wednesday the 24th. She is going to share some wonders about our Wonders curriculum! The workshop will be very beneficial for all of our parents! Ms. McGraw will show parents how to navigate Wonders to assist our scholars. I hope you join us!

We are also going to be assessing our Kindergarten students in MAPs. Our Primary teachers will let you know more about that. It was decided that the data collected from this assessment will be invaluable for our teachers in meeting the needs of individual students. 

As always, we at Bella want to thank you for your trust, patience, and kindness as we work together to make this a great year for all!

Enjoy and stay safe and healthy!

Dr. McQuestion

BMA Leader In Me page

Leader in Me provides elementary schools with a model and process that addresses common challenges that are unique to students during these formative years. Parents, educators, and school administrators are concerned with their child’s physical, mental, social, and economic well-being, all of which are factors that can contribute to or hinder academic success. Teachers, staff, and administrators at Leader in Me Schools are empowered to provide support in all of these areas by creating a learning environment that addresses whole-child education with five (5) Core Paradigms. These paradigms influence the behavior of staff, students, and their families. (Paradigm is an example or pattern)
