It’s Time to Order FBE Awards!

It’s Time to Order FBE Awards!

STAR Awards make a wonderful year-end gift, AND your donation supports the FBE’s mission!

“Thank you so much! It means more than you know.”

Amy Checkoway, Belmont School Committee member

Everyone LOVES getting these Awards - go ahead and make someone feel appreciated as the school year draws to a close.

  • STAR Awards: Honor educators and staff who have made a difference in your child’s education by sending them a STAR Award! These awards will be hand- delivered to teachers and staff members in the school buildings by a FBE volunteer.
  • Community Awards: Thank someone special for their service to our community with a ‘You’re A Star’ Community Award! The FBE will create your personalized award and deliver a print version to any work or home location within Belmont, MA. For recipients without a Belmont address, the FBE will deliver awards to the sender’s Belmont address for you to deliver personally.
  • Cost: $25 for one award or $100 for five awards. Your payment is a direct donation to the FBE and will be used to fund innovative and enriching experiences for our Belmont Public Schools students. Visit here to see examples of how your donations are used.
  • Order deadline: Please place your orders by June 9th to guarantee delivery before the last day of school.

Patrick Mongeau, Burbank Elementary School
