Dave McDonald, Visiting Author & Illustrator


Belton Elementary hosted author/illustrator Dave McDonald on May 18, 2015! He taught us how to use simple shapes to draw cartoons and how the "30 second challenge" can lead to some great ideas for writing! He also autographed books during his visit. You can learn more about Mr. Dave by visiting his website:


Book Character Day
BES celebrated National Library Week a week early this year. We capped off the week with Book Character Day--the halls at BES were filled with characters from our favorite fiction and biography books. And yes: Elvis lives!



Literacy on the Road!
BES teachers and staff hit the road on their Professional Development Day to carry literacy into the community and connect with students of all ages and parents. They played games and gave away lots of books! 

Literacy Through the Decades Family Night
Our family literacy nights are always great fun with activities centered around reading and writing!

Walk to School Day
Over 300 students, teachers, and district office personel walked to school from the Ingles parking lot on International Walk to School Day. They ended up in front of the school and did their house cheers.

BES Students Rock the PASS!

These students were recognized on the first day of school for their exceptional performance on the Spring PASS test!

A House Celebration!

The first day of school was especially exciting! The whole school gathered to celebrate and to learn more about the new house system. The houses are:
  • Fidelis - Representing Trustworthiness (Blue)
  • Decoro - Representing Honor (Purple)
  • Estima - Representing Respect (Black)
  • Probite - Representing Integrity (Orange)
  • Bravura - Representing Valor (Red)
  • Entusiasmo - Representing Enthusiasm (Green)

You can help BES by clipping Box Tops from hundreds of participating products and sending them to school.  Each coupon is worth 10 cents when our school redeems them from Box Tops for Education. The money that we raise helps to fund many of the special reading programs we have throughout the year.
