Need to Know

  • GPS Services
Mrs. Menard (Room 366/Science) and Mrs. Brewer (Room 115/English), the HAL coordinators at Bellevue West, are here to provide support to students and parents in terms of classroom differentiation, college preparation and social/emotional needs. Room 351 will be used every day during GPS to provide these services.
  • Peer Tutors Needed

We have had a great response from the teachers about our new peer tutoring program. This means that we are in great need of peer tutors. If you are interested but missed the meetings, you should contact Mrs. Brewer or Mrs. Menard or come to room 351 during GPS. If you are already approved to be a tutor, please utilize the google doc that was shared with you to sign up for an available day(s) to tutor.

From the counseling office...

Leta Hollingworth Scholarship

"The award consists of a cash award in the amount of $1000 and a copy of A Forgotten Voice, A Biography of Leta Stetter Hollingworth. One award will be given each year to a graduating senior.

The recipient must have distinguished him or herself through outstanding achievement, accomplishment, or unusual ability. The award winner will be announced by May 1.

Nebraska born Leta Stetter Hollingworth was considered a pioneer in the field of Gifted Education. She spent much of her life advocating for the gifted and highly gifted children. Hollingworth worked extensively at Speyer School in New York City, with children who scored between 130 and 200 IQ on the Stanford-Binet. She was well known for considering the social/emotional as well as the intellectual needs of high ability students. She also conducted the first longitudinal study of children above 180 IQ.

The funding for this award is made possible by Nebraska Association For Gifted as a result of the tireless effort of Dr. Linda Silverman to recognize Leta Hollingworth. In an effort to recognize the present work of Dr. Silverman and the past work of Leta Hollingworth this award is made available."

An email containing the application forms for this scholarship will be sent to all HAL seniors.
