BE Family STEAM Night is Friday, May 5th! BE here!

We WILL be showcasing our student academic and artwork all around the building! Don't miss a single hallway!

We WILL be celebrating with FOOD TRUCKS! Dolelicious and Taco Ta-Go will be in the west loop, ready to serve at 5:30. We will set up some tables in the gym for your dining pleasure- thanks for helping us bus those tables!

We WILL be shopping at the BOOK FAIR! Our cafeteria will transform into a massive book store! Please, note that, just like the NFL Draft Experience, the book fair is going cash-free. Credit or debit cards are welcome, or follow the directions below to create an eWallet.

We WILL be THROWING EGGS OFF THE ROOF!! Okay technically, only Mrs. Hargrove will be on the roof, and the goal is that no eggs be harmed in the process. Students are encouraged to design and build an egg transport device that will protect a raw egg from breaking when gently dropped from the roof of the cafeteria. Devices should be labeled with student's name and be brought to the gym on May 5th prior to launch time (7:00ish) Any devices utilizing peanut butter will need to be placed in the correctly labeled bin and will be launched last for safety.

THIS IS SO EXCITING!! We can't wait to see you here on the 5th!

We love having the opportunity to showcase unique and individual talents that may not always have an occasion to be displayed during normal school activities. This year, the dates you need to know are: Applications due (May 1); Auditions (videos welcome anytime, or live and in-person auditions will be held at school on May 5); Rehearsal during the school day (May 22) and LIVE PERFORMANCE (May 23, 9:30am).


  • MUST include Belmont Elementary students ONLY
  • Students may participate in ONE ACT ONLY so that we can fit in as many students as possible for the live performance (Exceptions may be made for teacher sponsored classroom performances.)
  • MUST be 3 minute in length or less. Or 1 minute. Or a couple. Or even a 10 second stunt is fine.
  • MUST be fully appropriate for all ages to view- think about song lyrics, know the drill.


  • 5th graders are eligible to apply as an emcee for the SHOW. I will communicate with students who sign up to be emcees directly to assign acts to send in some acts for them to introduce!!
