Welcome, please come and browse the newsletter.  In every entry you will find news from the schools as well as entries that will be staples in each edition, such as Teaching and Learning, School Committee Updates, and Good News.  We hope to highlight our staff, students, and this amazing community we are all part of.  There is a tremendous amount of activity in every school in Belmont, and we are proud to share it through this newsletter and the BPS website.

Superintendent's June 2018 Newsletter

Superintendent's June 2018 Newsletter

date 6/20/2018

We congratulate our high school seniors who had their graduation on June 3. We wish them all well in their future endeavors. Our friends at Belmont Media Center filmed the graduation and posted it online.  Please go here to view graduation. We also want to recognize and congratulate our fourth grade class who move up to Chenery, and our eighth grade class who move up to the high school. This is a special time for our Belmont families.

I hope you all have a wonderful summer, and we will see you on the first day of school, September 5 for grades 1-12, and September 6 and 7 for kindergarten (half of kindergarten students each day for a half day; notices will be sent home by each school).

Superintendent's May 2018 Newsletter

date 5/18/2018

Many schools showed their gratitude during Teacher and Nurse Appreciation Week, held May 7-May 11, with luncheons, flowers and thank you notes from the children. We appreciate our teachers and nurses all year long, and it is great to be able to thank them and recognize them in this way.

As you know, the Memorial Day holiday weekend is just around the corner--some call it the "unofficial" beginning of summer. Our schools are not in session on Monday, Memorial Day. I hope you all have a great long weekend.

Superintendent's March 9, 2018 Newsletter

date 3/9/2018
March is certainly "In like a Lion..." as the saying goes. Hard to believe spring is a little over a week away on March 20, and daylight savings time begins this Sunday, March 11, where we turn our clocks forward by one hour. Given the weather, this is a great  time to be indoors enjoying all the wonderful events at our schools, as you can see from the calendar below.
