Welcome to Belle Alexander!  We are the K-1 attendance center for the Kewanee Community School District.  Our mission is to work relentlessly to ensure our students have a solid foundation for reading, behaving, and learning; a caring connected school family; and a formula for future success.

In our building, you can expect to see students engaged in learning activities to help them master the Illinois Learning Standards.  We believe that learning should be interactive, fun, and tailored to students' needs.  We use homework as a way to connect families to the school community and as a way to reinforce the skills students learn at school.  Our students are called readers from the moment they walk in the door because reading is singularly important for their future.

Our faculty and staff are committed to embracing children in a caring school community.  We use Conscious Discipline to help students feel safe, connected, and able to solve problems.  Families who use the Conscious Discipline approach can help teach and reinforce positive behaviors at home.

Belle Alexander is the foundation of Kewanee's future.  We appreciate your support in accomplishing our mission.  

Mrs. Rebecca Baney, Belle Alexander Principal
