Week 25: 02/22 – 02/26/2021

Dear Bella Mente Families,

I hope this was a great week for all of our families!

Thank you to those that attended our Parent Workshop presented by Ms. Meghan McGraw! Ms. McGraw did a wonderful job showing parents how to better assist their students in our ELA program Wonders. What a comprehensive curriculum! 

Kudos to the Primary team for administering MAPs assessments on short notice. I truly appreciate the flexibility our staff has demonstrated this year. At Bella Mente, the students’ needs come first!

Next Thursday at 5pm we have a New Student Info Night. If you know anyone who is interested, please share. The information for logging in is below the newsletter. Everyone is invited! If you invite a family to be part of our Bella Mente Team, and they enroll at Bella Mente,  your child/children will receive a free uniform! 

We have a special event for parents who have students that are moving up to the next grade level. Save the date! March 24th! More information to come. We will also be having an assembly during the day for our students to virtually meet the teachers of the next grade level team and learn about what their next step looks like in their education career. We are looking forward to our 21/22 school year!

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    
Principal
