  • Welcome to the Communities in Schools webpage for Bellaire Elementary. The mission of CIS is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.



    Communities in Schools believes that every child needs and deserves these "Five Basics"...

    A one-to-one relationship with a caring adult

    A safe place to learn and grow

    A healthy start and a healthy future

    A chance to give back to peers and the community

    Parent & Family Engagement:

    College & Career Readiness:
