GCS Logo. Family Engagement Spotlight. Thought bubble image with the following: “We decided to send our children to Belwood Elementary School, not for convenience or being in district. The decision was made because of the down to earth, friendly atmosphere of the staff. Our son is greeted by name, each and every morning, accompanied with a warm smile. We feel a great deal of love and care from teachers who are genuinely walking in their calling. There is a sense of genuine care for the education and well being of students. Being on the school governance board, I have come to know this is true out front for everyone to see and behind the scenes.” Andrew Hight, BES Parent
