Thanksgiving Meal Box Update

[Hidden image]

We couldn’t be more pleased to announce that as a result of the Belleview community’s efforts, more than 85 Thanksgiving Meal Boxes were delivered to families this year!  A handful of the boxes were delivered to Belleview families. The vast majority of the Meal Boxes, however, were delivered to a nearby CCSD elementary school, where the student body is comprised of a largely low-income population and one that relies heavily on free and reduced-price school meals to ensure that they have breakfast and/or lunch during the school week.

Food is unquestionably a need for these families. Our contact at the school indicated that each and every family is “incredibly grateful” and that the receipt of the Meal Box is often met with tears of gratitude. We are hopeful that this knowledge reiterates the significant effect that your family’s participation has had on the lives of others.

Thank you to the Belleview students and families who donated nonperishables, entire Meal Boxes and/or gift cards. A special thank you to the Philanthropy Club students and parents, Ms. Glenn and the Belleview Student Council, and Belleview teachers and front office staff for the extra effort to make this year’s event a success.

“SOFT START” ANNOUNCEMENT, starting Dec 2nd Monday
Introduction of a “Soft Start” to the school day – starts Monday, December 2.
After many discussions with parents and staff members, we are pleased to be introducing a “soft start” to the school day at Belleview Elementary. This means beginning Monday, December 2 students will go straight to their classrooms at 7:50; there will no longer be any students lining up on playground or in the front of the building at the start of the school day.
Please do not drop off students before 7:50.
After hanging up coats and bags, students will undertake a range of independent learning activities such as reading and finishing up last night’s homework.
By beginning the school day this way, students do not have to wait outside for their teachers until 8:00. They can begin the day calmly by going straight to the classroom and doing a quiet activity.
If your child arrives at school after 8:00 am, please take them to the main entrance. Do not send your child around to the classroom, as all the doors will be locked. This ensures the class can begin their day smoothly with minimal interruptions.
At the end of the school day, children can be picked up as normal.
Please see attached  Letter from the Principal as well.

Kids of all ages love the chance to shop for small trinkets during their recess and lunch time. Prices range from 25 cents to $5 and lots in between.

We are also seeking volunteers to help run the store.  The school store is a great way to see your child and their friends at school while helping to raise a little extra money for Belleview.

Please click the Sign Up Genius link if you’d like to volunteer for a school store shift.  https://www. 70a0c49afa722a7fb6-belleview

Belleview kids love to read!  Hundreds of books get checked out every day in our library, and hundreds of others are returned. Will you come help us out with shelving books and other projects?

If you are new and interested, please contact Bill Hardman.

If you have volunteered in the past, you can sign up for open slots on Sign Up Genius.
