Bellevue Elementary School

The Castle on The Hill

Principal's Message

  • Principal

    The Bellevue Elementary School community has made great strides during this virtual school year. This has been an opportunity to utilize technology and lead our students and staff with tools for 21st century learning. At Bellevue, we are committed to making each day memorable and meaningful, and we believe when staff, parents and our school community work together, all of our Bellevue Dragons will benefit.

    At Bellevue Elementary School we recognize and promote the uniqueness of each individual child. Since each of our students has different strengths and needs, we promote a challenging atmosphere for learning through an integrated curriculum. Bellevue Elementary School is committed to excellence in educating and preparing students for their future contributions to society.  One way our vision is communicated to students is through the internalization of our school affirmation:

     

    I am Mindfully Me.

    Being Mindfully Me means…

    No one else can be who I can be.

    I matter; I’m unique;

    I am kind whenever I speak.

    I am helpful and it shows

    I practice self-control

    I stay focused, can’t you see

    I am delightfully, Mindfully Me!

     

    Bellevue is a community school and we practice the traits of “Caring, Respect, Responsibility, Trust and Family.” Help us to make the rest of this school year a successful one! If I can assist you in any way, if you have any questions, concerns, or just want to say hi, please feel free to contact me at vhines@rvaschools.net or 804-780-4417.

    Yours in service,

    Principal V. Tanaia Hines

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - April 2, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Happy Spring Break! I hope you're able to take some time for yourself this week – to rest, reflect, and recharge. I'm going to practice what I'm preaching so there won't be any RPS Direct next week. Look for the next one when we return on Monday, April 12. Thanks for your understanding! RPS Senior in the News – Check out this amazing story about Harold Aquino, senior at George Wythe High School. Harold will graduate at the top of his class with a 5.0 GPA (!) and multiple Associate Degrees. He's been accepted to his dream school, VCU, among many others. If Harold decides to attend VCU, he'll enter as a...senior! Harold, we are so proud of you! Continental Societies Donation – Many thanks to Continental Societies, Inc., Richmond, Virginia Chapter, for their donation of 5,000 children’s masks for our fall reopening.
