FBE Happy News!

FBE Awards 2020

Delighted faces beam behind these masks!

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

Amy Checkoway

Make someone’s day and thank that someone special for their service to our community during COVID-19 with a “You’re A Star’ Community Award. Honor exemplary educators or staff who have made a difference in your child’s education by sending them a STAR Award! Everyone LOVES getting these Awards - go ahead and make someone feel appreciated this holiday season.

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.

Your payment ($25 for one award or $100 for five awards) is a direct donation to the FBE and will be used to fund innovative and enriching experiences for our Belmont Public Schools students. Please visit our website to purchase your awards today!

“I have always loved getting these STAR Awards. I feel so good about the personal aspect of it…feeling like my parents got to help the education of all students in the district. I’m glad this program exists. Thanks for all of your work with the FBE.”

Patrick Mongeau, Burbank School
