Bella Vista Elementary School

We learn. We live. We achieve.

K-5 - Oakland, CA

Welcome!

  • Welcome to Bella Vista Elementary School. Located in Oakland's Bella Vista neighborhood, our school serves approximately 500 students in grades TK-5. We celebrate the diversity of our student body: more than half of our students speak another language at home.

    In fact, nearly 20 languages are represented at Bella Vista. We are a Community of Learners, promoting academic excellence in everything we do. Our teachers and staff work to inspire students each day to do their very best.

    What we do best is exemplified in our school's motto:

    We learn. We live. We achieve.

    We all use energy every single day. But did you know that a lot of the energy we use to power our homes and schools still comes from fossil fuels? What can we do to use more clean energy? We can change the time of day that we use it!

    The Bella Vista community is going to have a contest! Classrooms will compete against each other to see who can submit the most pledges. The classroom at our school with the most submitted pledges will receive a donut party or pizza party.

    With the help of your parents, you will complete a home energy investigation and pledge at your home on a phone, computer, or tablet. It is important that you type in our school name and your teacher's last name because the teacher's clssroom with the most submitted pledges will win a prize. You will answer questions about lighting, heating & air conditioning, and appliances. Then, as a family you will pledge to do at least one thing to shift your energy to off-peak hours.

  • Oakland Freadom Cards are here!

    OPC

    Cards were sent home with Bella Vista students the week of November 18-22, 2019. The Oakland Promise/Freadom Card is a regular Oakland Public Library (OPL) card on your child's school badge.  One side is the school badge, and the other side is the OPL card. If your child already has an OPL library card and receives this card, the card will become their new library card.

    Your child's library card allows them full access to all library print and online materials. Click here for more information.

    Dear Bella Vista Families,

    Did you know that your student has access to a healthy breakfast and lunch at school, free of charge? That’s right! Breakfast After the Bell is continuing this year to ensure that all students have access to delicious, nutritional options to start their day of learning strong. Lunches provided in the cafeteria rotate and always include a salad bar of yummy fruits and veggies. Additionally, our FoodCorps member, Ms. Ivy, will be offering taste tests of produce from our very own school garden throughout the year. With all these great options available, please try to save chips and cookies for an after-school treat. And remember that OUSD policy does not allow candy or soda on any school campus. Our best learning happens when we keep our body healthy.

    Thank you!

    Bella Vista Faculty & Staff
