Congratulations BSEAC Award Recipients


Congratulations BSEAC Award Recipients!!!! 

The BSEAC (Belmont Special Education Advisory Council) hosted its 11th annual awards ceremony at the Butler Elementary School on Wednesday evening May 27th.  55 Individual awards and 3 Team Awards were given out to a variety of educators, van drivers, community members, and even a student who have taken the time to go the extra mile for our kids who need a little extra help during their school year.  A lite dinner of sandwich's, pasta, salad, etc. was served to award recipients, those who made the nominations, and to several school principals, school committee members, BSEAC volunteer parents, Student Services Directors, LABBB Directors, and the superintendent.

This special night is always a memorable one where award recipients who have gone above and beyond for students who require special services are personally recognized by parents.  This year even some students submitted nominations.  It was truly a touching evening!! 

To those parents and students who took their time to nominate the Award Recipients we are so grateful.  Without you recognizing those in our community this lovely evening every year would not be possible.  Listen to what Ali Skelly, Pre-School Teacher from Wellington and Award Recipient said about the evening "The awards night is such a special and meaningful night for me. The parents write the most touching and personal statements about us. It is always nice to be recognized, but it is also nice to hear about the positive impact my co-workers are having on their students. I love seeing my former families and enjoy hearing about their new endeavors. This night stays with me throughout the year and I cannot thank you enough for the time and effort BSEAC puts into this special night. Thank you!"

John Phelan's (Superintendent) closing comments summed up the whole evening as he said “It was so nice to hear the parents write how the teachers, bus drivers, aides and award winners made their children feel each day.  The words they used were: safe, confident, included, heard, independent, challenged and valued. All children should feel this way at school each day.”
