Week 33: 05/03 – 05/07/2021

Dear Bella Mente Families,

Happy May We are almost to summer! We have a busy few weeks left of our school year.

Next week we have our monthly Board of Directors meeting on Tuesday, 5/11, at 6:30 pm. We also will have Answers with McQuestion on Thursday, 5/13, at 5 pm for English and 6 pm for Spanish. Please see the links below.

We will be having our Virtual Open House on Thursday, 5/20! Please save the date and be on the lookout for more information to come!

NWEA MAPs assessments will be held between 5/17 thru 5/28. Your scholar’s teacher will be in touch with you regarding MAPs testing dates and times for your child’s individual class. Follow this link to find out why MAPs assessments are so important in your child’s learning path. 

Bella is going to end a tough year with some fun activities for our scholars! We will be having On-Campus Assemblies for our hybrid students to attend and our virtual students to attend via Zoom. More information on this coming soon! Check out the flyers below for details.

Lastly, we have had some inquiries about our Covid-19 prevention protocols. Please know that Bella Mente continues to follow federal, state, and local guidelines. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.  

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!
