8th-Grade-Printmaking-Class_0128.JPG
Students in Ms. Byrnes’ 8th Grade Printmaking class had the pleasure of working alongside Habitat from Massachusetts Audubon Society thanks to a grant funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Students worked alongside Habitat for three classes, interacting hands-on with critters, plants, and various items from the outside world. Tiny Frogs and huge African Millipedes were among the guests that students will surely never forget! Students then created rubbings and sketches of these items, highlighting the wonder of local wildlife and natural elements from their own backyards! [read more →]

April 14 Newsletter

John Phelan, Superintendent of Schools

Over the last month the community engaged in a powerful conversation about the town budget and services.  In a day of very high election turnout, the community voted to adopt a $4.5 million override.  As the superintendent responsible for leading our schools, I am appreciative of the efforts of every voice in this conversation and value the decision to provide financial support to the town and especially our schools.  This vote of confidence in the schools will bring a heavier burden upon our leadership team to ensure we are spending tax dollars efficiently and effectively on behalf of the community.  We look forward to continue to provide a high quality of education to Belmont students.

There is one newsletter this month due to the April recess. I hope you and your families have a wonderful week off.
