Extra-Curricular Activities and Programs
Buddies Bellevue-Santa Fe helps forge special relationships between students of different grades through our Buddy program. Kindergarteners are paired with 4th and 5th graders and special activities are planned for them throughout the year. Each year thereafter, students are matched with a new child from another grade in an effort to build a close-knit school community.
Artists in Residence Program Experts in the fields of visual art, music, and dance provide instruction and activities for students throughout the year.
Musical Theater Musical Theater is by far our most popular after-school program. Over the past seven years, our students have been directed in fantastic all-school productions of well-loved musicals. Through this outstanding drama program, students of all grade levels—from Kindergarten to 6th grade—have been given a chance to perform at professional venues throughout the county. The Musical Theater program involves a separate fee and is held after school.
Dr. Chess A countywide program developed to teach students of all ages chess strategy and gamesmanship during weekly workshops on campus. Activities include instruction, game time, and chess trivia.
Social Events Periodically throughout the school year, Bellevue-Santa Fe families are invited to gather for an all-school social event. The Social Committee organizes events to bring our school together for fun and friendship outside the regular academic day.
Annual Spring Auction and Carnival Bellevue-Santa Fe’s most important fundraiser is also its most exciting. Featuring game stations, a climbing wall, bounce houses, food and both live and silent auction items up for bid, the Spring Auction is our biggest event of the year raising tens of thousands of dollars for school programs. Among the most popular items up for bid are elaborate creations made as class projects by each of the Forums.
