Reminder; Online Learning Starts on Monday, April 6

Online learning for students at Belleville Middle and High Schools starts on Monday. Students should be checking their school GMail and Google Classrooms beginning on April 6. Please contact Mr. Perry or Mrs. Schmitz if you have questions or concerns, as we launch into this new platform. It will be an adventure for all of us, but one that I am confident will produce long-term benefits.

"My Fair Lady"

Belleville Middle and High School staff and students are in the midst of their spring musical production- "My Fair Lady." Nearly 30 students have a role in this year's production. A Thursday evening show was introduced for 2020, along with another on Friday night and two shows on Saturday. The show directed by Emma and Michael Vogel, with musical direction from Sara Krueger, was choreographed this year by Whitney Andersen. They brought "My Fair Lady" to new audiences, who saw it in the splendor of the renovated auditorium with updated lights, sound, and digital backdrops. Congratulations to all involved!
