    Thank you all for all you contribute to the well-being of Bel Aire School and staff. We appreciate all that you do: PTA chairs, Foundation staff and chairs, classroom volunteers, lunch and Lunch Bunch volunteers, Peter Pan volunteers, hospitality (thank you for all the treats!), everyone that smiles and says a friendly greeting, and anyone that contributes in any way to the care and keeping of the staff and students. You all contribute to the health, happiness, and sanity of our Bel Aire community.

    Recalling that the ‘E’ in C.L.E.A.R. stands for empathy, I would like to encourage families to talk about Halloween costume choices - specifically, if a preferred costume depicts another's culture. In the past, we have asked students to avoid costumes with weapons or violence.
