Principal’s Message:

Hello! Welcome to Belpre Elementary School.

Our goal at Belpre Elementary is to work with you to ensure that your child grows to their greatest potential.  We want to build a foundation for them of social, emotional, and academic skills, that will help them be successful through graduation and their entire future.

Our focus is on strong literacy skills and math foundational skills.  Our teachers are trained to engage students within the classroom, so they are using multi-intelligences when learning.  We utilize movement, technology, manipulatives, and cooperative learning every day. Our classrooms strongly follow the Ohio state standards for the skills we want your child to master, but we realize that a 21st Century worker will also need soft skills such as organization, preparedness, and teamwork.

Our staff has educators who are highly trained academically, and intensively trained in creating a trauma sensitive environment for students with various needs.  We strive to maintain classrooms that are welcoming to students and where students feel as though they can have fun, make mistakes, and learn every day. We want our students to WANT to be in school every morning.

Our doors are open for communication and our office is here to serve you and your family. Welcome to the Belpre family and let us know how we can help your child(ren) find their niche in this ever-changing world.
