    Kat Perkins Kat Perkins Performance:

    Our students enjoyed a presentation from Kat Perkins, a former Voice contestant, this morning.  She spoke to the students about being fearless and what that means, including how students can be brave, dream it and you can do it, and to be kind.  She finished her presentation by singing her hit song Fearless and inviting the students to sing along to the well known song, Let it Go.


    Progress Reports:

    Just a reminder progress reports are being emailed by the end of the day on Friday, February 3, 2017.  If you did not receive your child’s progress report, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher.



    Each year 40+ volunteers are needed at the Science Fair for project check-in, interviewing, demonstrations, serving ice cream and clean-up (great for scout troops).  The Science Fair is on March 7th this year.  If you can give a gift of time to our Bel Air kids, please sign-up online at https://sites.google.com/a/moundsviewschools.org/welcome-to-science/matrix or email Laura Scheid,  volunteer coordinator at laura.scheid@wspgroup.com, if you are able to help out!
