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.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. My hope is that we take time to “be thankful” to live and work in such a caring community as Belmont. Best wishes on a wonderful holiday and safe travels.

A busy month at schools saw a little summer thrown into our fall season when some days hit temperatures of 80 degrees or more. However, fall has arrived, complete with leaves falling from the trees and a familiar nip in the air. Halloween is just around the corner--please come and celebrate early at the family-friendly Haunted House display and Masquerade Concert held at Belmont High School on October 26. See the details for this and other school events below.
