The Belfield High School’s annual Veteran’s Day program was held at the Belfield High School gym on Tuesday, November 10th at 9:30 am. It was excellent! There were two speakers from the school; Jordan Buckman from elementary and Rachael Solberg from high school. The keynote speaker was Brigadier General Alan Dohrmann. He gave a great speech. The choir performed two pieces, “Soldier” and “There is Peace”. The elementary joined the choir for “There is Peace”. The band also performed two pieces, “Hey Brother” and “Marches of the Armed Forces”. A small group of girls from the choir performed “See You Again” and Rachael Solberg and Sierra Costas sang “Amazing Grace”. It was a wonderful program!!
There will be no school on Wednesday November 11th for Veterans Day. Also, there will be no school Wednesday November 25th for Thanksgiving break. Classes will resume on Monday November 30.
Heart River ended football season with a bang. In their final game of the 2015 season the Heart River Cougars boys football team defeats Standing Rock 60-8. The cougars went on to score all 60 of their points in the first half, with Cole Olson leading the way with 3 touchdowns. Tayden Jacobson and Dion Madler ended the game with 2 touchdowns and Seth Keator and Kadyn Malkowski each having a touchdown.
With the season ending the Heart River Cougars ended their season on a positive note to send out the seniors. They finished the season on a two game win streak.
On October 13th, the elementary children had a super visit from Super Apple Man and his healthy helpers. He managed to exercise and teach the children with his enthusiastic voice and fun way. Everyone participated, even some of the high school students from Ms. Sipma’s study hall. When Super Apple Man told to touch their brains, dance, jump, and have fun, no one hesitated. Everyone listened intently to what he had to say. He taught the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables and appreciated how well behaved the Belfield Cubs were !
