2019 Staff Recognition Day


 

Staff Recognition Recipients Standing The 28th Annual Staff Recognition Day celebrated 54 staff and faculty members of Belmont Public Schools for their years of service ranging from 10 to 40. The reception was held on May 22 followed by presentations of certificates and gifts by Assistant Superintendent Janice Darias, Human Resources Director Mary Pederson, and Belmont Education Association President John Sullivan.

Chenery Secretary Joanne DiBona, who could not attend the event, reached a service milestone of 40 years with the Belmont Public Schools. Only two other people in recent memory have reached that mark on recognition day; Richard Samaria (Mr. S), Physical Education Teacher, and Gwen Irish, Elementary Teacher (both from Wellington). Ms. DiBona has been a member of the Belmont Public Schools for 53 years, including her time as an elementary student at Burbank to her graduation from Belmont High School.

Principal Mike McAllister congratulated Ms. DiBona on achieving "Mount Rushmore status" as she joins the ranks of Mr. Samaria and Ms. Irish. "Think about how many late lunches she has seen delivered to the main office, how many calls to the classroom she has had to make," says McAllister. "She ensures that everyone who arrives on our shores looking to learn is greeted with a positive, kind, and welcoming experience. Joanne is the face of our school, and we are thankful for it."

Congratulations to all for their many years of service.
