Thank You John Dewey Academy of Learning

John Dewey Academy of Learning students recently presented projects to the Village on a variety of topics.  Student presentations included:
  • Bringing a library to Bellevue
  • Transparency on costs of living in Bellevue and other municipalities
  • Improving the the Village's website and social media
  •  Fundraising and sustaining a dog park in Bellevue
  • Adding sidewalks and trails to the community
  • Creating a teen space
  • Use of Stadium Tax funding and creation of a Bellevue reforestation area
The Village of Bellevue and our staff had a great experience working with the students over the past several months.  The Village is very supportive of working with youth in our community and providing educational experiences about local government.  Our staff also learned a lot from the students.  Thank you John Dewey Academy!
