Teacher, Staff Member & Parent of the Year
Congratulations to Bell Academy's 2022 Teacher of the Year, Staff Member of the Year, and Parent of the Year. Individuals were nominated and voted on by faculty and staff of the school. Thank you all for your continued support, contribution, and love for Bell Academy. Mrs. Clare Moore was chosen as Parent of the Year. Clare was instrumental in planting the seeds to help our Bell Sprouts garden grow into the amazing learning opportunity for our staff and students. She can often be found volunteering in the garden, promoting Bell within the community, and working with students at the Cleveland Farmers’ Market. Ms. Carolyn Washington was chosen as Staff Member of the Year. Ms. Washington wears many hats at Bell including serving as the computer lab instructor, fixed asset manager, technology support, and assisting in the office . Ms. Washington provides support to many and does so with a giving heart. Mrs. Pam Field was chosen as Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Field is not only dedicated to her pre-kindergarten students, but to Bell Academy as a whole. Each day she greets each faculty member, student, and parent with a smile and kind spirit. She is always willing to jump in and lend a helping hand. She works collaboratively with Mrs. Tammy to plan engaging, age appropriate, meaningful activities for her students to help them excel in the classroom.
Read for the Record
Bell Academy participated in Jumpstart's Read for the Record on October 27, 2022. Families, friends, and volunteers from the surrounding community read aloud "Nigel and the Moon" by A. Eady and donated books to the classrooms. After participating in Read for the Record for many years now, this may be the largest group of volunteers to date (some not pictured). This shared reading experience celebrates children’s language and social-emotional development while instilling the love for reading. Thank you to the CSD community for helping us celebrate in this annual event!
Congratulations to our winners of the school level Reading Fair! The purpose of the Reading Fair is to provide students the opportunity to share their favorite fiction or nonfiction book through a storyboard or digital media display. All first place winners will advance to the district level reading fair at a later date.
