Blue Bell Fun Facts

Did you know every 5th grader gets to ring the school's blue bell at 5th grade promotion to middle school? It's a wonderful tradition to celebrate their completion of elementary school! 

Blue Bell has an amazing walking trail that teachers and students use as an outdoor classroom to participate in activities linked to the science, art, math, social studies and health curriculum. Students also use the trail for the Walk/Run Mile Club and Girls on the Run.
