July 7 Newsletter
Friday, July 7
Summer is a great time for families to enjoy getting outdoors exploring and connecting with nature, and taking time to read together. The Beloit Public Library has a wonderful free summer reading program and events for the entire family. Time spent reading this summer is a great activity that will support a successful start to the upcoming school year and beyond.
Please take a moment to access our Community Hub webpage for information on summer camps, back to school giveaway events, back-to-school physicals, summer job opportunities, and more.
Registration for returning students is a yearly event. This year, we are making it much more convenient for our families by offering in-person and online registration in July. The registration process must be completed for each returning child in your family. Registration helps us get all the information we need to have your child(ren) ready for a successful first day of school and to allow for the opportunity for our teachers to reach out to your child(ren) before the start of school.
In-person registration begins on Tuesday, July 11, and Thursday, July 13, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Beloit Memorial High School cafeteria. Spanish translators will be available for assistance.
Online registration also begins on Tuesday, July 11, 2023, at 8:00 a.m. Please access our online registration site to register online.
As July is in full swing, we continue to work hard in preparing for the start of the school year on Tuesday, September 5, and the return of our students. I hope July is filled with good weather, quality time with family and friends, and making memories.
