Week 34: 05/10 – 05/14/2021

Dear Bella Mente Families,

I hope this finds you and your family well! We at Bella are enjoying San Diego Springtime, cool mornings, and sunny afternoons.

Save the date! Virtual Open House is on Thursday, May 20th.  The teachers have put together a wonderful program to show off what the students have done this year.  We have two sessions so if you have multiple students you can attend multiple teachers’ presentations. It all starts at 5:45 pm.  Please visit our OPEN HOUSE link to find the zoom link for your scholar’s teacher(s). We will also have a Zoom Room if anyone has questions for registration and a Zoom Room to meet with me. Busy evening!

NWEA MAPs assessments will begin next week. 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.  

Thank you for supporting us with the Panda Express fundraiser. We have already started planning for next year.  If you have a dining location you think we should try, please email Maca Davis at mdavis@bellamentecharter.org and let her know your choice for a dining night.

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!
