Principal's Message

Principal's Message

Welcome to Bell Intermediate School. 

I am thrilled to be starting my third year as principal of this award winning school.  I am proud of the many positive opportunities students are provided during their time at Bell. With a focus on the GGUSD vision and mission statements, Bell teachers and staff strive to create a safe and positive campus and classroom environment that encourages all students to be "successful and responsible citizens who contribute and thrive in a diverse society."

Intermediate School is a short, but pivotal time in each young person's life.  The positive learning environment combined with the scholarly habits that are practiced each day at Bell Intermediate School will help students understand that reaching their goals is possible.  The skills learned today will provide the foundation for all students to be successful in high school and through their post-secondary goals.

In addition to the great academic opportunities on campus, I encourage both you and your child to take advantage of the many extra-curricular activities provided to Bell students and families.  Research shows that students who are involved in clubs and school activities experience greater success with both academic and personal skills.

It is important that you create and routinely monitor an Aeries Parent Portal and review your student's attendance and academic progress.  This is an integral communication tool between school, student, and family.

We also offer a variety of parent education nights that address the current issues in our society and we have many opportunities to be involved in supporting our students in their school events.

I look forward to meeting each of you and supporting you and your child through these formative years.


M'Liss Patterson, Principal
