Belmont Elementary: A PAWSitive Place to Learn!

Kindest Kansas Citian Entries 2022-2023

Each year, every Belmont student is invited to participate in Synergy Services’ Kindest Kansas

Citian competition. Students can draw a picture (K-2) or write about an adult that has made an

impact on their life by showing kindness. Checkout our Bulldogs’ amazing work by clicking on each picture to make it large enough to read!

Thank you to the parents of these amazing nominators who took the time to make the day of someone important to them. Priceless.

Yearbook Signing is Monday, May 22!

Students will receive their yearbooks on Monday morning just in time for our all-school yearbook signing. Students will have 45 minutes to collect signatures from friends and staff all over the building.

If you missed the deadline to purchase a yearbook and are still interested in buying one, you may be in luck. We have a very limited number of extra yearbooks in the office and will sell them Monday morning, first come, first served. They are $15 cash or check.

The SHOW 2023 is Tuesday, May 23!

Many Bulldog students have been hard at work preparing for this year's big show! The performance will be at 9:15 Tuesday morning in the gym. Families of performers are welcome to attend!

Belmont Field Day is Wednesday, May 24!

Woohoo!! Field day is Wednesday, May 24th for literally the entire school!

3rd, 4th and 5th graders will participate in field day rotations from 9:00-11:30. Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders will participate in field day rotations primarily led by the 5th graders from 12:30-3:00. Then, all Kindergarten through 5th grade will participate in our traditional Tug-o-War at 3:00.

Important info:

  • Sunscreen and water bottles are SUPER GREAT IDEAS!! Please apply!
  • Dress for success- old clothes and tennis shoes rule! Hats are a good idea, too!
  • You might think about sending a second pair of socks and shoes to change into after playing in case the field is still wet in the morning. And a bag. They might need a bag to put those in. Phew!

  • Send an individual sack lunch from home!
  • Or if preferred, pre-order sack lunch from school by May 19th by emailing The lunch will include a Jammy Sammy, cheese stick, Goldfish crackers, baby carrots with ranch, frozen juice cup and milk. We have limited supplies available from the vendors at this time of the year, so order soon if needed! We appreciate it!
  • Parents will not be able to join their children for lunch on field day as we'll all be eating at the same time in classrooms and we can't accommodate so many extra bodies.

  • Who can attend? Only adults are allowed on the field with Belmont Bulldogs participating in field day. No siblings will be allowed to join in activities or go past a marked spectator zone. We STRONGLY encourage parents to find a sitter for siblings on field day so that they can freely volunteer or participate with their school-agers during the events of the day. It's FUN!! If that's not possible for you and you want to stop by to watch from the sidelines for a bit, there will be a spectator zone, but I can't guarantee that all events will be easily view-able from the site. Yes, indeed, the spectator zone will be in full view of the tug-o-war site at the end of the day.

  • VOLUNTEERS are welcome! Adults only! PLEASE, MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE SIGNING UP FOR THE TIME WHEN YOUR CHILD WILL BE PARTICIPATING IN FIELD DAY ACTIVITIES. 3rd-5th graders participate in the morning and Kdg-2nd graders participate in the afternoon. Directions for each activity will be printed on the back of each station sign. Mrs. Koester will also make the rounds to help demo or explain details.
  • Click here for 3rd-5th in the morning!
  • Click here for K-2nd in the afternoon!
  • Parents may also travel with their child's class and help out at each station.
