In every entry you will find news from the schools as well as entries that will be staples in each edition, such as Teaching and Learning, School Committee Updates, and Good News.  We hope to highlight our staff, students, and this amazing community we are all part of.  There is a tremendous amount of activity in every school in Belmont, and we are proud to share it through this newsletter and the BPS website.

October 30 Newsletter

This is a busy weekend with Halloween on Saturday and the clocks turning back on Sunday when Daylight Savings time ends, giving us that needed extra hour of sleep. Also marking our time is the upcoming end of the first quarter of school, where exciting stuff is happening in teaching and learning. Happy Halloween to all, have a great weekend.

September 21 Newsletter

Our new school year is in full swing.  Warm temperatures made for a challenging first few days, but we settled into the new school year nicely nevertheless. I will be providing a bi-monthly newsletter to keep you up to date as to what is happening here at the Belmont Schools.  Welcome back to all the parents and caregivers using this site.  I hope this is a useful source for all parents new to the district.

First Day of School Year 2015-2016

First Day of School Year 2015-2016

date 8/31/2015

Wednesday, September 2, 2015 will be the first day of school for all students in grade one through grade 12.  Our kindergarten students will start next week on Tuesday and Wednesday.

My hope is that the pre Labor Day start will facilitate a smooth transition for our children by having two days of school this week, followed by a long four day weekend, and four days of school next week. This gradual start will give our students a chance to meet their teachers this week, find out expectations for the year, and set up their school routines.  Then, hopefully they can spend the four day weekend stress free and return to school Tuesday refreshed and prepared to learn.
