Hello Bella Mente Leopards!

CAASPP test will be completed this week and it has been encouraging to see all of you concentrating and working hard to do well on the state examinations!

Thank You!

Bella Mente Academy’s Open House is this Thursday, May 19th, 2022. The event will begin at 5:00pm and end promptly at 7:00pm. Parents are welcome to come to the school in person to visit classrooms and see the wonderful work and projects that students have completed. We look forward to seeing you at the event. Please be respectful to others by limiting your time speaking with a teacher if others are waiting.

This Monday, May 16th 2022, our upper elementary scholars will be traveling to the San Juan Capistrano Mission. The following Monday, May 23rd 2022, our middle school scholars will participate in an overnight trip to the Pali Institute!

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


Bella Mente Academy


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.
