Welcome

2018-19 Classroom Supplies List

Dear Families, Parents and Friends,

Welcome Back, we missed you!!

On behalf of our entire staff, we would like to welcome our new kindergarten students and our returning first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth grade students! It is with great honor and much enthusiasm that we plan for and begin our new school year.

Let me begin by introducing myself! My name is Mrs. Lorge and I will be your principal! I am thrilled to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year and I am looking forward to meeting new faces, revisiting with familiar ones, as well as hearing all about your summer adventures! For those of you who have not met me, I taught in Belfield since 2000 and have been in administration for the past 10 years. I am very excited to work together to make this a fabulous new school year!

I would like to recognize all of our dedicated teachers who have spent many hours this summer  taking classes, networking with other teachers, and preparing their classrooms and lesson plans for a spectacular new near!  I would also like to give special mention to our teachers who spend part of their vacation offering summer classes to our learners.  Many changes have taken place this summer as our growing numbers made it possible to split first and third grades.  This split made it necessary to move our fifth and sixth grades into the junior high hallway. The teachers have been really busy with the moves and making their classrooms student ready.

Additionally, I would like to offer my sincere thanks and appreciation to our custodial staff. They worked diligently throughout the summer to clean and ready the school. Many facility updates from structural to technological took place and are continuing to happen as we speak!

All teachers and support staff have spent hours preparing materials, creating child-centered classrooms, and reviewing data. The rooms are beginning to look amazing! Secretaries and office staff have worked hard behind the scenes to make sure everything is running smoothly and efficiently.

Please be sure to check your child’s backpack daily as well as the Belfield Public School’s website, http://www.belfield.k12.nd.us  for notices and updates.

We are very much looking forward to watching the students’ stream off of the buses and out of cars and to have the hallways filled with the hustle and bustle that has been absent all summer. Old friendships are quickly rekindled and new friendships made. Students swap stories about summer and show off new backpacks and school supplies.

We are looking forward to our collaboration in providing a safe and nurturing environment as well as a challenging and diverse curriculum.

Sincerely,

 

  1. Marie Lorge, Principal
