All BHS after school activities and events have been cancelled.
It is official! The BHS Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Team ranked #2 in the High School Challenge and raised a record $15,890 for the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer efforts. Once again, we will be on the stage of the Hatch Shell in October to kick off the 2016 walk. We couldn’t have done this without the help of the entire BHS community. Heartfelt thanks for helping us surpass our goal!
Once again, we are participating in the PJ Drive for Cradles to Crayons, a wonderful non-profit organization in Brighton, which provides gently-used clothes and gear for needy Massachusetts children. (http://cradlestocrayons.org/boston). For this drive, sponsored by the Boston Bruins, we are collecting both monetary donations and pairs of new, warm pj’s in sizes newborn to 18.
If you would like to help us, please drop off the new pj’s (please keep the tags on!) in the main office by Wednesday, February 24. Monetary donations (checks made out to Cradles to Crayons) may either be brought to the office or mailed to Ms. Alice Melnikoff, Belmont High School, 221 Concord Avenue, Belmont, MA 02478.
We are fundraising in other ways as well. On February 11, we will hold our annual “Pajamarama”, our day for students and staff to wear PJ’s in exchange for a donation. Local merchants contribute door prizes for participants. In addition, we coordinate similar PJ days in some of the other schools. Tomorrow we will be at the Belmont Star Market, fundraising for Cradles to Crayons, and we will hold our annual car wash with Belmont Car Wash on Saturday March 26 . We will have a new event this year– a promotion at the Fresh Pond Bertucci’s, which will give Cradles to Crayons 15% of the proceeds on Wednesday, February 24 (Details to come!)
Last year, from all of our projects in the campaign, we raised over $1700 and received 94 pairs of new pajamas (a low figure for us, since the weather was uncooperative for Star Market and the car wash). We hope to surpass that total by a large amount!
Thanks for supporting this drive.
Belmont High School WILL be open Friday, 2/5.
Please join the BHS Community in celebrating one of Belmont owns, Becca Pizzi, at a parade on Thursday February 4, 2016 at 3:30pm.
Becca graduated from Belmont High School in 1998. During her time here, she was a member of the Soccer team, Cross Country Team, and Track Teams. She went on to Mars Hill University and ran track there. Becca recently just made history as being the FIRST female who completed 7 marathons, in 7 days, on 7 continents. Not only did Becca compete, and complete this task, she also came in FIRST place in all 7 marathons for females, and was the female CHAMPION of this World Marathon Challenge.
Becca’s parade will start on Thursday at 3:30pm, at Belmont High School, and it will go into Belmont Centre, and end at Belmont Savings Bank. Please come and support a BHS graduate, Becca Pizzi.
Contact Officer Melissa O’Connor at Belmont High School if you are interested in participating.
