All athletic events scheduled for this evening (1/17/22) are canceled.
The time has come for our students to start scheduling classes for next year! This is an exciting yet stressful time. It means that students will be advancing into their next year of school, putting them even closer to the finish line! However, it can also be hard to pick the right classes and make sure everything is submitted on time. Belpre staff knows how stressful this can be for our students, especially for our Juniors who will be entering their SENIOR YEAR of high school! We want to make it as painless as possible for everybody involved by releasing clear instructions and dates for upcoming events!. Thanks to our wonderful tech guy, Mr. Morris, starting on January 18th students will be able to view the course handbook on the Belpre website or from a link on their Chromebook. This provides the parents and students with easy access to available courses and their descriptions. Schedule requests will be handed out to all students by the end of January. Current Juniors will be scheduled first. All current juniors will need to have turned in their signed schedule requests to Mrs. Miller’s office on or before February 28th. Scheduling meetings will occur prior to that date. Once Mrs. Miller has finished meeting with the juniors, she will start scheduling all current 8th, 9th and 10th graders. All students will have to have their signed schedule requests turned in on or before March 31st. Scheduling meetings will happen prior to this date. Students potentially interested in College Credit Plus courses for the next year will need to have watched the CCP video and completed the letter of intent. That will be posted online and emailed to all students by February 15th and will remain open through April 1st. Once all schedules have been created, all high school students will be able to view their schedules for next year in Infinite Campus. We plan to have them up and ready to view by June 3rd. We will be posting reminders on the website throughout the next few months. Mr. Greenley will also be providing some reminder all-calls. We encourage students and parents to take their time in this process, and reach out if they need any help. Let's finish this year out strong while setting our students up for success next year!

In August 2021, a Literacy Adoption Committee was formed and led by Director of Teaching and Learning, Ally Trew and comprised of a diverse group of K-12 teachers of literacy. The District Literacy Adoption Committee has met monthly since August. Research shows that providing teachers with high-quality instructional materials to support their teaching helps increase student learning. When teachers have great instructional materials, they can focus their time, energy , and creativity on meeting the diverse needs of students and helping each of them all learn and grow. In collaboration with other districts around the state, Ohio Department of Education's Plan to Raise Literacy Achievement, as well as the body of scientifically-based research that provides us with the information we need to gain a deeper understanding of how we learn to read, what skills are learned, how they work together, and which parts of the brain are responsible for reading development- the team was ale to create a vision for adoption and implementation. The District Literacy Adoption Committee will make a recommendation to the Belpre Board of Education next month.
Tonight’s boys basketball game vs. Caldwell has been canceled. It is rescheduled for 1/31/22.
Belpre Elementary students created a large beautiful "Thank You" card for our school board while learning a little bit about what the board does for them and their school.

For all are their dedication, we are taking this opportunity to show them our appreciation during School Board Recognition Month.

Don't mind the noise--it's just the middle grades battling it out in the first annual REINDEER GAMES! Our 6th graders traveled to the Lawton gym for a morning of Christmas competitions and some *very* loud cheering. The points were close, but in the end 8th grade class came out the winners! They will celebrate with a pizza party when they return from break. Way to go, Belpre Middle Schoolers and teachers!
Last night we celebrated the retirement of Tim Snider and Mitch Freels, who for a combined 55 years of service, walked the halls of our schools in our district every day making sure our students had a safe space where they could learn and grow. Thank you and enjoy your retirement!
As we say goodbye to Mr. Leonard Wiggins, we value him as a caring parent as well as a strong supporter of Belpre City Schools. We have appreciated and are grateful for his insight, ideas, dedication and advocacy for Belpre City Schools during his eleven years on the board.
