For three decades of Septembers, folks at Bell's Hill Elementary have been rolling up and rolling out tasty enchiladas. The school's annual enchilada dinner was again the place to be on Thursday, September 11. For some, this event is a homecoming.
"This is my 31st year at Bell's Hill," said proud and ageless principal Bevil Cohn. "It's great to see the smiling faces of my former students who are now Bell's Hill parents."
When it comes to rolling enchiladas, staff members of all sorts pitch in. "Our teacher interns from the Baylor University PDS program especially enjoy getting immersed in the Bell's Hill culture and tradition," added Cohn.
Besides filling hungry tummies with delicious Tex-Mex delicacies, the enchilada dinner serves as key piece in the filling the school's student and community engagement requirements under House Bill 5.
"I love it when I see parents lined up at the door before 5pm," said Cohn. "It's great to be principal of a school where parents value their child's education."
