Week 26: 03/01 – 03/05/2021

Dear Bella Mente Families,

I hope you and your family had a wonderful week! Welcome to March!

Next Tuesday is our monthly Board Meeting, please see meeting links below. We also have Answers with McQuestion on Thursday of next week. Links to Thursday’s meeting are below. As usual, I will be there to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. 

I also want to share with you our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP is a way for us as a school to set goals, plan actions, and leverage resources to meet goals and improve student learning. Your input is vital! We work as a team to support our scholars. The link to the LCAP template is here for your preview. LCAP Template

I look forward to working with you while always striving to improve our scholars’ educational experience!

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
