Good News!

The FBE is thrilled to announce two new Rapid Response Grants have been awarded to the Belmont Public Schools totaling $1,775. One RRG is for Wellington Elementary, for flexible seating to assist with COVID learning. The other is for Winn Brook Elementary, for wireless keyboards for teachers enabling more flexibility to move around the classroom when teaching remote and live learners at the same time.

Good Cheer!

The FBE has partnered with Jayne’s Flowers to spread a little sunshine throughout Belmont. For the month of April, you can order a beautiful bouquet of daffodils, and FBE volunteers will hand-deliver them anywhere in Belmont on a Wednesday. What a great chance to spread some cheer and let a special person, family, school, or business know that you are thinking of them. Not only will you  brighten up someone’s day, you will be supporting FBE grants, programs, and services in the process. ORDER HERE - please indicate recipients’ names and addresses on your order, and FBE Volunteers will deliver your daffodils from Jayne’s, with a card attached to the flowers. Daffodils are $12 per bunch or $50 for five bunches (can be sent to multiple addresses).

Queries? Please get in touch with us at fundraising@fbe-belmont.org or visit our website at fbe-belmont.org/event/daffodils/ for more information.
