Latest News & Announcements
Kindergarten is a huge step in a child’s life!
Polk County Public Schools wants to make this big change a little easier and is launching a new Kindergarten Readiness Summer Camp.
During a free, weeklong program, our newest scholars will participate in fun learning activities to better prepare them for success in the classroom and beyond.
The camp will begin Monday, June 27, and run through Thursday, June 30.
Teachers will use play, classroom organization and learning centers to cover essential areas for kindergarten readiness, including language, literacy and math. Children will also learn about important social-emotional skills and topics, such as following rules, taking turns, understanding emotions, and expressing themselves productively.
The deadline to apply for the camp is May 20, 2022.

Parents and Guardians,
The Polk County School Board recently approved the expansion at Bella Citta, which will allow our school to grow and provide better continuity for students in grades K-8.
The Bella Citta expansion will take approximately two years to complete and will consist of two phases.
Phase one will focus on the new classrooms building for middle school students. It is important to note that while the school will be a K-8 campus, we will have two separate buildings for our elementary and middle school students. The new middle school facility will mirror that of a traditional middle school campus and will include spaces for art, music, and a media center.
Phase two will focus on a new gymnasium and cafeteria expansion. Middle school grades will be added each year as follows:
2022-23 – 6th grade
2023-24 – 6th and 7th grades
2024-25 – 6th, 7th and 8th grades
You are receiving this message as we need your assistance to begin planning for the 2022-23 school year. Bella Citta will be able to accommodate 6th-grade students for the 2022-23 school year. To accommodate the 6th-grade expansion, the school will use a combination of existing classrooms (five) and portables (four) until construction is completed. Once the classroom spaces are completed (July 2023), students will then transition to the new building for the 2023-24 school year.
As the parent or guardian of a current 5th-grade student, we need to ask you to complete a short survey to let us know if your child will remain at Bella Citta, or if he/she will attend another middle school.
Please click on the following link to access the survey (Bella Citta Elementary School - 6th Grade Enrollment for 2022-2023).
You may have some additional questions, and we will host another information night from 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. on April 25.
I would encourage you to attend this meeting if you need further information, and we greatly appreciate your participation in our survey.

Bella Citta Community Meeting

Meeting ID: 854 2523 8762
We would like to invite all of our community stakeholders to a special meeting on Jan. 18 to discuss the future of Bella Citta Elementary.
The school district is exploring the possibility of expanding Bella Citta Elementary to include additional grade levels.
Currently, Bella Citta Elementary accommodates students from kindergarten through fifth grade. The district is considering whether to include additional construction and amenities to transform Bella Citta into a K-8 facility. The benefit would be to allow students to stay connected to Bella Citta from their elementary years into their middle school experience.
However, please understand that no final decision has been made. We want to receive input from all of our school’s stakeholders, including parents, guardians, community members, teachers and non-instructional staff.
That’s why we are scheduling a meeting on Jan. 18.
The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. and be held at Bella Citta Elementary, 201 Bella Citta Blvd. in Davenport.
Again, all stakeholders are welcome to join this meeting.
Hope to see you there!
