Bellevue ISD will be providing a free full day Pre-Kindergarten program during the 2020-2021 school year for qualifying students.
The focus of the program is to develop prerequisite skills and early childhood concepts that will build academic success for students in elementary years and beyond.
Any student(s) who reside in the Bellevue school district or is a child of a school employee and who meets the criteria will be accepted in the Bellevue ISD Pre-K program. A child wishing to be admitted to the program must be four years old on or before Sept. 1, 2020. Students outside the school district must apply for transfer. Spaces will be limited to accommodate qualifying students in the district.

Excitement building for Macy’s Thanksgiving parade for NHS cheerleaders
By BARBARA GREEN
The cheerleading squad of Nocona High School will leave Nov. 18 to take part in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Nov. 23.
The squad was invited back in early April after a parade scout saw some videos of the girls at games and pep rallies. Sponsor Rebecca Wilson said she first thought it was a scam, but after finding out it was legitimate and a parent meeting it was confirmed they wanted to go.
The squad will perform in the parade with Spirit of America Cheer, a large group with members from all across the United States. The girls have to pay airfare and hotel, while Spirit Production pays for their costumes, gear needed for the parade and some meals. They will be in the city six days arriving on Nov. 18 and leaving the day after the parade.
Once the decision was made to attend, the girls launched into a massive fund raising campaign to pay their expenses. Thanks to the support of family, friends and the community they were able to meet the goal that will send 11 girls to the parade. Three of the girls from the 14-member squad will not be attending. There also are parents going along as chaperones.
Wilson said they fly to New York on Nov. 18 and there will be rehearsals every day, mornings and evenings. The girls have already received their costumes and gear, and all provided by the company. They also have received the choreography and have begun learning the routine.
