Belle Sherman Student Directory Time!


The Belle Sherman PTA has created a Google form to enter any information you’d like included in the Belle Sherman student directory.

Here’s the link to the form.

For those who are new to the school, the Student Directory is a paper booklet with the contact info for children, teachers and staff, organized by class, that is sent home to each school family.   Participation is completely optional! Although there are spaces for email, phone, address and parent name(s), you can enter as little information as you like. This information won’t be published online and the Google form just feeds into a spreadsheet we’ll use to enter it into the printed booklet.

If you’re uncomfortable using the Google form,  paper forms will be sent home this week.
