The Cougar Literacy Run’s mission is to encourage students to read every day, get excited exploring new books, and to feel successful when they accomplish their reading goals. Through community partnerships we are able to provide literacy resources for the 1600 Pre-K-5 students of Manassas Park, while promoting health and wellness.
BELL Aims to Innovate!
One of the strongest assets of Manassas Park is the charm of a small-town feel in the busy, fast-paced environment of Northern Virginia. Besides the success of the schools, families and businesses are moving to Manassas Park to embrace that sense of community. At BELL, our goal is to work with our partners to provide increased support for the students of Manassas Park and to strengthen our community from within—beginning with our students.
to cultivate and inspire our diverse school community to achieve academic excellence and
make positive connections to the global society.
We embody the philosophy that all students can realize their ultimate potential through the support of strong relationships and educational opportunities.
We put money into the hands of teachers to immediately impact innovating teaching and learning practices each and every year!
We support STEM in all schools and award student scholarships for a variety of higher education needs.
We give you the opportunity to work directly with our teachers and students because relationships matter.
We welcome your partnership and support because our partners are an instrumental part of Manassas Park students' opportunities and successes.
Our signature events are heralded in the community for their unique approach in student, faculty, and community engagement. When we say "relationships matter", we mean it. No event is complete without our entire community!
