Afternoon car riders
In an effort to eliminate the double car line and be safer, we will adjust the pickup procedures slightly. You will still double stack all the way up to the last curve. At that point a staff member will let 20 cars at a time pull to the sidewalk to load your child. Once your child is in your car and the car in front of you has pulled away, you may go. If your child has not come out, please pull to the front of the line and a staff member will recall your number. This is a trial period for the new proces. Please be patient. We will begin this system on Monday, May 20.
If your child is not returning to Bell's Crossing next year, please let the front office know through a note to the teacher or by e-mail to Tracy Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your child's full name and to where you are relocating. This will help tremendously with our planning for next year. Thank you.
Report Card Envelope
Please send in a self-addressed business size report card envelope with postage for your child's end of year report card as well as other important information from the school. Thank you.

Mr. Ross The Human Sundae!
Bell's Crossing Elementary School finished up their Boosterthon celebrations today. Class dance parties started our day and then at 2pm, right before dismissal, Mr. Ross, our principal, was turned into a human sundae, (much to the delight of the students, staff and parents!) Thank you boys and girls for helping us raise so much money and for ensuring that we had 100% of our pledges turned in. Here are the photographs of Mr. Ross the Human Sundae.
