Week 27: 03/08 – 03/12/2021

Dear Bella Mente Families,

Thank you to those who attended the Board of Directors meeting and Answers with McQuestion. I appreciate your input when we meet! As most of you know we are pivoting to a hybrid model in April. Please complete the survey that was emailed to you regarding virtual or hybrid learning for your student.

 

Our students who are Leveling Up to the next team level will be meeting teachers of the team today. Kudos to our teachers for the great presentations they created for the students! Please join us for Cooking it Up with Mr. Hank next Tuesday at 5 pm. See link below.

 

Our state testing was not canceled this year and will begin for our 3rd through 8th graders in April. Stay tuned for more information on state testing.

 

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
