From the Principal

I’m grateful for the years of sustained efforts by members of our community to meet our fundraising goals.  I am keenly aware of the massive amounts of energy that go into fundraising at Bellevue.  The spring carnival and auction is a great community building event now, in the past it was a fundraising necessity to keep the school running.

I want to thank Cherisse Sweeney for volunteering to be the auction coordinator for the second year in a row. Many thanks also to her hard working crew: Heather Wallace, Rebecca Norrbom, Tina Crozier, Michele Engle, Stepanie Purvis, Richard Shih, Kathleen Schroeder, Ane May, Kelly Salter, Andrea Purdy, and Sue Karleskint.  The Dream Big Carnival & Auction will be held tomorrow, Saturday, May 14th from noon to 4:00 p.m.  I look forward to seeing you there.

Dream Big!

Thank You Families

Thank you to everyone who bought a chicken curry from my sale. Together we raised $342!  These donations were given to Dream Street. This money will help children with a chronic or life threatening disease go to camp. – Aidan Kaiser

Dear Bellevue Students and Parents,

We would like to thank you for helping us support the World Wildlife Fund by purchasing our baked goods during our bake sale.  For our service project, we raised money to donate to WWF so they can help protect and preserve animal species that are at risk of becoming extinct.  WWF make sure that species like the Amur Leopard and Leather Back Turtles can continue to survive naturally and eventually thrive again like they once did before they were hunted.  Thank you for your support!

Ashlin’s Service Project

My name is Ashlin Diggs and for my sixth grade service project I am raising money for the Cal Poly Cat Shelter. The shelter houses and feeds feral cats. It also spays/neuters these cats to lower the population of wild cats around San Luis County. Another service the shelter provides is taking in older cats, these cats would regularly be euthanized in animal services.

I have two donation bins one inside the office and one outside the office. The one inside is for money donations and the outside bin is for item donations. The items that would be helpful to the shelter are plastic non reusable gloves, paper towels, blankets, beds, and toys. Any one of these donations would help the shelter greatly.

Thank you
