Did you know that Belleview Elementary is a Wellness Leadership School for our school district?

“The goals of the Cherry Creek School District’s Comprehensive Wellness Strategy are to address barriers to student achievement and to develop skills that support lifelong healthy living.  This is achieved through implementation of programs and practices that support the physical and psychological health of your students and develop the whole child.”
