Front Door Policy

Please help us follow the front door procedures.  If you see somebody approaching the front door please do not hold the door open for them.  We need our visitors to ring the bell to be acknowledged by the front desk.  This may feel disrespectful to the approaching visitor, but it keeps our school safe by not allowing visitors to enter our building without being acknowledged by the main office.  I appreciate your understanding of our need to follow our safety procedures that are put in place to keep our school a safe learning environment.  Thanks Tiffany Kophs

 HELP WANTED: BELLEVIEW PTCO WEB SITE MANAGER

·    Website management is something you can easily do from home during the hours that little ones are asleep, kids are at school or while watching your favorite TV show.

·    Have you ever wanted to create your own blog or website? Or are you already familiar with maintaining website content?

·    The PTCO uses a WordPress based web builder for its existing website and is looking for someone to maintain the website for the 2018-2019 school year. It’s a super easy drag & drop application anyone can learn.

·    Your main duty will be to take the content created by other PTCO members and copy and paste it into the existing website. Then you get to be creative by adding colors, pictures and fun fonts!

·    The bulk of the work happens in the beginning of the school year when the calendar needs to be populated and pages need to be updated for the year. After that, you update when you need to add an upcoming event to the website.

·    Added bonus: Bas Hollander, who has done the website in previous years will still be here to help you and get you started.
