    This school's history is set to end as we prepare to close our doors at the end of the 2020-2021 school year but we believe the leagcy of Bellaire will continue. After 50+ years educating the children of this neighboorhood and serving the community it will be challenging and tough. We hope that the Bellaire name will live on but we know that all the children who have passed through its doors and have now grown up can help keep the spirit and memories alive and that they have come to appreciate learning, caring and community. Once a Brave always a Brave.
