Powderpuff 2018

While many schools have cancelled or refused to sanction girls' Powderpuff football games in recent years due to poor sportsmanship, Belleville High School's game on the Monday night of Homecoming Week is still competitive but fun! The football players serve as coaches, and staff members referee the contests. It is a great way to begin the week.

Homecoming Rocks and Walls

To begin Homecoming Week 2018, each class presents a rock and wall to be judged. The opponent for both football and volleyball this week is Cambridge, so the themes are geared toward the Blue Jays. Overall, the judges were impressed with the students' spirit!

Wildcat Welding

Look at these Wildcats!

Mr. Neumann's Advanced Trades class started its first welding unit this past week. They are practicing GMAW, Gas Metal Arc Welding, in the new metals area of the STEAM lab.

Sparks are flying, and the fun is beginning!

Congratulations to the 2018 Belleville High School Homecoming Court. They were chosen to represent their classes by their peers earlier in the week. We are looking forward to an exciting, spirited Homecoming Week next week!

7th Grade Low Ropes Course Field Trip

Similar to the 8th grade field trip to Bethel Horizons on Wednesday, the 7th grade traveled there today to participate in the Low Ropes Challenge. Bethel's team takes the students through warm-ups, icebreakers, and team- & trust-building activities designed for students to work and think together through beams, cables, and ropes. Once again, the weather was spectacular for this 7th grade bonding experience!

STEAM Lab

The STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Math) Lab is now complete! This includes an area for metals and welding that all of Mr. Neumann's courses can utilize. He took it one step further by "Wildcat-ifying" the new welding masks. The students are excited to get started in this new area!

Perfect Attendance Award

Congratulations to Jackson Sies! He was one of only two returning high school students with perfect attendance for last year's spring semester. That means no absences (besides field trips) and no tardies! Jackson also had perfect attendance for the fall semester too! There is a direct correlation between attendance and grades (https://nces.ed.gov/pubs2009/attendancedata/chapter1a.asp ) that we hope more of our students understand and strive for!

1st Day PBIS Videos

To start the school year, Spirit Club and middle school volunteers helped to create videos in August to play on the first day of school to address proper behavior. Some of these behavior issues were issues from last year that we want to address and correct to launch the 2018-19 school year on a positive note!
