Dear Belle Haven Families,
 
Welcome back to all our returning students and families and welcome to our new families. My name is Michelle Masuda Lee and I am proud to be the principal of a school with a tradition of academic excellence and dedicated parental involvement. I am excited to announce our vice principal this year is our very own Mr. Stuart Shiraishi. He was previously a 4th grade teacher here at Belle Haven and is excited to work with the community in a new role. Our staff have been busy this summer planning and attending trainings in order to provide a stimulating school year filled with many academic and social opportunities for every student.
 
As we are starting off the year, we want to ensure that your student(s) are safe. We will still be enforcing safety protocols determined by the County Public Health Department. We also recognize that it may be a huge transition for some of our students to be back on campus. Our goal is to provide an environment where all students feel welcome and safe.
 
Through all of our changes, I want your child(ren) to be happy and successful at Belle Haven. I believe that families play a key role in student’s success by continually showing interest in school and providing support for their child. Any child who knows that his or her family is interested in and supports the school program will always enjoy greater success. Please share with your child's teacher any information you feel will help us better serve your child and your family. I believe that ongoing communication among parents, students, and teachers is critical in assuring student success. If you find that your student(s) need to speak to a counselor, please notify your teacher or the office.
 
Staff emails can be found on our website, http://bellehaven.ravenswoodschools.org/Staff-Directory/ or you can call the school to contact teachers. Please make sure your phone number and email are updated with the school.
 
Our results from district benchmark assessments show that students with better attendance were more successful. Please have your child(ren) at school by 8:30am daily. Teachers have a limited amount of time with students and want to promote learning acceleration. When students are in class, they learn from their teacher and build relationships with their peers. I hope you will be able to support us and your student(s) during this school year.
 
For the safety of our staff and students, we are requesting all visitors to please wear a face mask. Please only use the main office entrance of the school during the day during work hours.
 
For more information about this upcoming school year, please join us online at one of our Parent Orientations on Thursday, August 19 at 8:30am or at 4pm. The link will be shared through Parent Square.
 
Please feel free to contact us in the office at 329-2898 or 384-7806 starting August 9th from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  We are here to assist you and to provide the best education and experiences for your child.
 
On behalf of the staff, I welcome you to another great year and we look forward to seeing you. Go Panthers!
 
Sincerely,
 
Michelle Masuda Lee, Principal
