    Information/Action Items:
    • During American Education Week, we are celebrating education. BES is asking parents to share on social media their favorite memory as a student, their favorite teacher, and/or express appreciation to your child’s teacher – past and current. If you do share on social media during American Education Week, please consider tagging BelvedereBears on Facebook, @BelvedereElemSC on Twitter, and/or BelvedereElementary on Instagram.
    • Box Tops for Education We are still collecting Box Tops for Education, but the company has moved to using a smartphone app to collect the box tops. We sent home the instructions last week and we’ll post the instructions on all of our social media sites. Please help us collect as many Box Tops as possible. The company gives the school funds to assist with school needs.

  • PREPARE FOR FAMILY EMERGENCIES WITH SMART911 - We are fortunate in Aiken County to have access to a free service called SMART911. The service allows families to register their homes and occupants for the purpose of providing law enforcement and first responders with immediate access to life-saving information in the event of a call for help to 911. During an actual emergency, first responders will have this vital information relayed to them before they arrive. Signing up is fast, easy, and free! Click HERE to view the SMART911 flyer for some great safety tips for students, or visit online at for more information.
