Principal Message

Hello Bella Mente Leopards!
It’s almost testing time again! The CAASPP testing begins on May 9th, 2022! As always, the expectation is that you will do your very best on these assessments. Let’s show the State of California how well we are doing at Bella Mente Academy! Hopefully everyone had a wonderful time celebrating Cinco De Mayo! The day is a celebratory reminder of the Mexican victory over Napoleon’s French army at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862!

If you have not made plans to attend Bella Mente Academy’s Open House, please mark your calendars for May 19th, 2022. It will be an incredible night of family and community interaction as you will be able to visit your child’s classroom and possibly meet their teacher for next year. It would be a pleasure to meet you.

May 16th our upper elementary scholars will be traveling to the San Juan Capistrano Mission. The following week on May 23rd, our middle school scholars will participate in the annual overnight Pali Institute trip!

Please remember that Co-ed Volleyball for 5th and 6th graders takes place after school and is taught by Coach Alex on Thursdays from 3:30pm to 4:30pm.
Remember our food distributions each week and look for some of your missing items in our lost and found. Stay strong and determined Leopards. You will be successful. We will help you achieve your goals. We are here to help you!

Best Wishes,

James Proby

Dear Bella Mente Families,
Thank you so much for your support on Field Day back in March before Spring Break! The students had a great time and threw so many pies at the faces of Coach, Mr. Proby and Mr. Anthony, along with some classroom teachers! Thanks to all the support from you, we raised $1800 for the PE department which was used to invest in some new equipment.
We purchased two portable 6 foot Basketball hoops which will be great for both recess and the Basketball unit in PE! We also got some Frisbees, soccer balls, footballs, basketballs, jump ropes and wiffle balls. Plenty of equipment for recess and to ensure every student has what they need in our PE units together!
Thank you again for the support, I can’t wait to do it all again next year and continue to support our scholars relationship with exercise!
Alex Morgan.
PE Teacher.
