    Bell Academy has decided to hold a Read-a-thon this year! Read-a-thons actually get your reader excited about reading and it gives friends and family the opportunity to encourage your child to read even more. Our Read-a-thon starts Monday March 27, 2023.  About one week before our Read-a-thon starts we will send home instructions on how to activate your reader's personal page. This is where you will be able to view and record their progress. We encourage you to activate your reader’s account today by clicking on https://www.read-a-thon.com/readers/r/uloJQH/1 and following the simple instructions. We've chosen Read-a-thon because it will not take much of your time, gives your child a reason to read and helps in the development of stronger reading skills. We hope EVERYONE participates. Local businesses also love to support school programs. If you know of a business or organization interested in supporting Bell Academy, please share the sponsor kit located on the right under school announcements. It explains how they can advertise on the Read-a-Thon website throughout the fundraiser.

    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!
