Bellwood News

At Bellwood, we appreciate our involved parents and community members. We also enjoy broadcasting our latest news and information here on our News page, where we will chronicle school activities and student achievements and publish announcements. We’ll also offer helpful resources and information. So check back often, as we update it regularly.

Food Distribution (Grab and Go) Updates
The food distribution meal program (Grab and Go) will continue throughout the summer every Monday and Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. through Friday, August 14, 2020. We have two distribution sites: Grant Elementary School and Roosevelt Middle School. Thank you to those who have continued to make this program possible.
Remote Summer School Registration

Bellwood School District 88 is offering two options for our remote summer enrichment program for all (kindergarten through 8th grade) students from June 3 to June 30, 2020. All students must have access to a computer with a camera and internet service.

The first option is a teacher supervised program, which will include scheduled Google Meet sessions each week. Selected students will be required to participate from 9:00 a.m.–noon, Monday to Friday. The second option is a parent supervised program that will require students to work for two-hours daily, Monday to Friday at their own pace.

Registration deadline is Tuesday, May 26, 2020. We will mail all acceptance letters to parents no later than Friday, May 29, 2020.

Group Connection

Thank you to all the parents who attended our May group connection. During June, we will have two virtual group connections. These connections will be on Thursday, June 11, and June 25, 2020, at 11:00 a.m. On June 11, we will discuss social-emotional learning: healthy home practices during COVID-19. As parent educators, we want to ensure that we are providing the tools and discussing topics of concern by our parents that will help to continue growth in all areas of success. 

Parent educators will continue their visits virtually until the end of June. We will be sending out surveys, by means of a link, and it is important to complete the surveys and send them back to your parent educators as soon as possible.

We will provide June 25, 2020, Zoom information at another date. Please see below for June 11, 2020, meeting information.
