The holiday months past and present of giving thanks and familial gatherings around the table make us proud to be part of another family, that of the Belmont Schools.  As we celebrate this season of many holidays we all hold close to us, we also celebrate the many achievements and hard work of the staff, students, families, and supporters of the Belmont Schools.  The next newsletter will be penned when we return in January.  In the meantime, I wish you safe travels and have a wonderful winter recess and Happy New Year.
