A Message from our Principal

A Welcome letter from the Principal:

Welcome! Thank you for stopping by to take a look at our website. Bellwood Elementary School is a Pre-Kindergarten - 5th grade elementary school anchored in the wonderful Quail Oaks neighborhood.

The staff and faculty at Bellwood Elementary School are committed to providing the best possible education for every child in a safe, nurturing environment. Our school motto is “Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day!” We firmly believe that success in school leads to success in life, and we strive to provide a learning climate that promotes positive attitudes and builds each student’s character.

Here at Bellwood, teaching and learning focus on meeting and exceeding the Virginia State Standards for every child. Varied levels of instruction provide a framework to challenge advanced students and support those who are struggling, while creating a solid classroom experience for students learning at grade level. Our teachers at every grade level are trained to give support and opportunities in general education classrooms for students with disabilities, assuring that all children have access to the core curriculum. It is our intention for each one of our students to leave Bellwood Elementary School prepared for higher education, equipped with critical thinking skills and empowered with a love of learning.

We consider parents to be our absolute partners in every Bellwood student’s education, and we welcome volunteers in our classrooms, activities and programs. Our teachers invite ongoing communication with families, and our door is always open. We appreciate your input, and we look forward to partnering with you and your child in these very important first years of school.

Jennifer Rudd, Principal
