From the Principal’s Desk


Dear Belmont Families,

This weekend is a homework free weekend! I hope that everyone is able to rest, relax, and recharge. Please take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices of all of our Veterans who have served to protect our freedom and democracy. 

As you may know from yesterday’s news bulletin, our food services director Dustin O’Brien made the local breaking news yesterday for rescuing two dogs on the Tobin Bridge. You can read the article here. As a dedicated dog owner myself, I appreciated his efforts to safeguard these animals!

This weekend is a busy time for the Mauraders! To find out when the all of our teams play check out the schedule here. In particular we have many teams competing in MIAA tournaments!
