Welcome to Bellshire Elementary Design Center


Parents and Students,

I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to Bellshire Elementary School. Our school is committed to providing an environment where children are afforded the best possible educational opportunities. Our faculty, staff, and administration believe in working together with parents and the community in an effort to accomplish our goal of helping each child become a successful learner and citizen.

As your child’s principal, I personally invite you to be actively involved in your child’s educational process. These are the most important years of your child’s life, and it is my desire that every child has a successful and satisfying year.


Dr. Shantrell Pirtle




Welcome to Bellshire Design Center where GREAT things are happening.  We are very excited about the upcoming year.  We serve Pre-K through 4th grade families in the Hunter’s Lane Cluster.  Bellshire’s Pre-K Academy has one of the largest populations of 4 year olds in MNPS with 5 Pre-k classes.   We  will SOAR to make high gains in achievement this year.  Technology took a front row seat at Bellshire last year and we will continue to utilize these resources.  Each classroom is equipped with ceiling mounted projectors, document cameras, Smartboards and student computers.    Bellshire has a technology lab that is in the special area rotation that will give each student the opportunity to learn necessary computer and typing skills to prepare our students for the changes coming with the new assessment next year.  We also have three mobile carts of netbooks, two mobile laptop carts, and an ipod cart available for classroom use.  Parents play an important role in Bellshire’s success and we continue to partner with families to promote excellence.

Bellshire will continue with Cici’s night, Bingo For Books, Spring Carnival, Chick-fil-a nights and more new things to come.

Bellshire is a Title 1 school. Click the link below to find out more information what that means for you and your child.
