Belfast Giving Tree:
For the last 2 years staff and parents at Belfast have made Holiday Wishes come true for some of our families in need. Wishes for unidentified students are posted on a tree in the staff room and generous individuals fill those wishes and return the gifts to Belfast for distribution. If you would like to be involved this year please visite Kari in the office or call (403) 777-6250. Drop off and pickup of gifts will take place the last week of school before winter break.
Reminder Monterey Bottle Depot is accepting recyclables on behalf of Belfast Fundraising. This is a simple way to help out our school and our environment.
Here you will find information emailed to parents via School Messenger. Each entry is a combination of a general message that was sent to all parents and a commercial message that was sent only to parents who have opted in to receive commercial messages.
