Did you know that food banks run low in January?

Belmont Bulldogs can help! Our PAWS Student Leadership Team is sponsoring a FOOD DRIVE to benefit families served through the De Soto Food Pantry. Our food drive will take place the week of January 11-15th. Below is a list of the Top 10 Needed Items:


#1 Canned Fruit and Applesauce or Canned Veggies (they have enough corn and green beans right now!)

#2 Dried Beans and Rice

#3 Cereal or Pancake Mix & Syrup

#4 Peanut Butter & Jelly

#5 Instant Potatoes or Pasta or Rice Sides

#6 Spaghetti Sauce or Canned Tomato products

#7 Hamburger Helper and other box meals

#8 Tuna or other canned meats

#9 Sugar and Flour for Baking

#10 Personal Care Items (shampoo/conditioner, razors, bar soap, toothpaste, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry soap, dish soap)


If this project fits your family's heart, just send any items to school with your child. Thanks so much for helping us learn about making a difference at Belmont and beyond!

Did you forget to order a yearbook? Don't worry and stress over it- just go online or tack a check to the fridge for January!

We will still accept your order when we return in January!! Yearbooks are $13 each, and may be ordered through the Belmont office using cash or check made out to Belmont Elementary. Yearbooks may also be ordered online at ybpay.lifetouch.com using the Yearbook ID Code: 10740216. We cannot guarantee yearbooks will be available at the end of the year if one is not pre-ordered now. Generally, we only have access to a few extra that we'll sell on a first-come, first-served basis the last week of school. Don't miss out! Order soon!
