Arlington-Belmont Crew, Spring Season Registration


**2017 Spring Season Registration is open**

Arlington-Belmont Crew is open to all students currently enrolled at either Arlington High School or Belmont High School.  No experience is necessary, we will teach you everything you need to know!  Rowing is a great full-body workout and will help you get in great shape, as long as you’re committed to working hard.  Plus, you’ll meet great people and make friends for years to come.


Practices run Monday through Friday afternoons after school beginning the week of March 20, 2017.  We race most Saturdays/Sundays from mid-April through the end of May. We will usually meet at Spy Pond (on Pond Lane) and dismiss from Spy Pond.  For the complete practice schedule, see the calendar on our website (
If you are interested in joining our team, the spring registration information is found on our website (  If you have questions, please see our website for contact information.

Cara Filler

Throughout this eye-opening presentation on traffic safety and risk taking, Cara inspires students to stand up for themselves and their friends, have a good time safely and make better life-changing decisions. With entertaining and powerful messages, Cara encourages students to step up and realize they own the Power of Choice.

Life is a journey, and Cara gives students a road map to navigate through its speed bumps and roadblocks. Students learn how to create their own GPS (Game Plan for Success!), develop an unstoppable drive forward and the secrets of getting in the express lane to success.

BHS Faculty and Staff Professional Development Day, 3/8

Thank you to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) for presenting to the BHS faculty and staff on 3/8. The two-hour professional development program was designed to help faculty and staff members work as allies to identify and understand mental health conditions that can have significant impact on students’ academic success and overall well being.

The program addressed a range of mental health conditions with an emphasis on:




*Oppositonal Defiant Disorder


It provided practical, solutions-oriented information, including:

*Signs and symptoms


*Classroom strategies and accommodations

*Strengthening alliance with families

*Understanding stigma and empathy


The program was presented by a panel of engaging speakers with uniquely relevant expertise and perspectives:

*A young adult shared his challenges of mental health issues as a high school student and professional life.

*A teacher and school nurse offered their classroom and professional experiences working with students with mental illness in high schools.

*A parent shared her struggles and successes as her child progressed through high school and tips for communicating with families.


*The faculty and staff members are better equipped to recognize signs and symptoms of common youth mental health conditions.

*The faculty and staff gained a greater awareness of resources, tools, and strategies.
