No Place for Hate Banner

Blue Bell Elementary is proud to be designated as No Place for Hate. During the 2024-2025 school year, administrators, students, staff, and families will play a key role in actualizing the district’s No Place for Hate goals, plans and activities.  

During the 2023-2024 school year, No Place for Hate’s implementation across schools started with staff awareness, the selection of No Place for Hate coordinators, and the introduction of No Place for Hate to students through instructional lessons focused on respect, empathy, kindness, acceptance, diversity, and inclusion.

Staff and students received invitations to serve as leaders in designing and cultivating meaningful opportunities and learning experiences centered on the district’s No Place for Hate efforts. Additionally, schools intentionally employed and continue to leverage existing student groups, literature, meetings, and assemblies focused on anti-bullying.

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.
