At the start of the year the BHS Student leadership team identified final exams and the resulting stress as an area for growth at Belmont High. Students organized the first ever “Stress Free Brunch,” in an effort to enhance the school’s environment and let students and staff blow off some steam. A free brunch was organized with food provided by both the BHS Food Serviced staff and by volunteers who baked and purchased items. Five therapy dog teams were on site through a partnership with Dog B.O.N.E.S. (http://www.therapydog.info/), and good music was on hand to keep the atmosphere fun.
Both students and staff members took a break from exams to have a great brunch, listen to music and play with the dogs.
Thank you to all the students and staff members who helped make this possible.
