89% Participation Rate at Orientation

On Wednesday night, August 26, Belleville Middle and High Schools held their orientation for 7th and 9th grade students. We had an 89% participation rate by families from both of those classes. Thank you for your time! The 7th graders received tours of the building from the upperclassmen and had a chance to put supplies in their lockers for the first time. The freshmen also heard a presentation on class rings and signed their graduation pledge banner.

Wildcat Service Cord Program

The Belleville School Board approved the Wildcat Service Cord Program at their meeting on July 27. Students who volunteer an average of 35 hours per year over the course of their four high school years can earn a special cord to wear in recognition of their service at the commencement ceremony. Please see the link for more details. Students can immediately begin volunteering and documenting their time!

"I Believe Run"

With the fall sports' season already underway, the Sugar River Raider Soccer Team recently completed their "I Believe Run." The tradition was started by former boys' soccer coach Dick Sanders and has been in place for the last five years. It connects Belleville and New Glarus - two towns under one team. The run is approximately 7.5 miles, but according to new co-head coach Kyle Webber, "the boys will tell you it is a 9-mile run." The whole team participates in the run, even the coaches.
The first two miles of the run are uphill.
