Kindergarten Registration
Please register any rising kindergarten children for next year now. If your child turns 5 by September 1, 2015, he/she can be registered for the 2015-2016 school year.

Afternoon Car Riders
Official car tags from our school must be used. This helps the school verify the person picking up the child has been asked to do this. If you need additional tags, please call the main office 355-3800. Anyone who does not have the official Bell's Crossing tag will be asked to park and go in to sign the child out. Thank you for helping to keep our children safe.

Reedy River Run
It's that time to dust off those resolutions to get in shape. We are going to run the Reedy River Race for the fifth year in a row as a Bell's Crossing community. All are encouraged to race. There is one BIG difference this year: the discounted races have only been given to racers 14 years and under. All adults pay full price and all registration is done online. Please see the letter for more information. Who is Reedy to Run?!!​
