Great Start to the New Year

The first week of school is officially in the books!  We are fortunate to have a committed staff of bus drivers, mechanics, maintenance, custodians, cafeteria workers, teachers, and administrators.  Many things take place prior to the school year starting.  The custodial staff works very hard to clean every inch of every building in the district.  Maintenance workers spent the summer making repairs to the buildings that were much needed.   The mechanics at the bus garage did a phenomenal job preparing the buses for inspection – with all passing on first inspection.  Teachers worked preparing their classrooms for the students’ arrival. 

As most of you are aware there have been many changes in the district this past summer.  With all the changes things went well for the first week.  There are several new faces in the district and some familiar faces have changed positions.

The Meet the Teams night has become a staple in Bellaire Athletics signifying the start of the fall sports season.  This years' edition did not disappoint.  From the sneak-peak of the "Pride of the All-American Town" marching band's half-time repertoire to the upbeat cheers of Coach Games' cheerleaders, the Big Reds supporters on hand had plenty to cheer for on the night.  The fall season promises to be exciting for those rooting for the Red and Black! Good luck to all of the coaches and players this fall!  Go Big Reds!

National Honor Society Induction

On December 10th, Bellaire High School's National Honor Society chapter welcomed eleven new junior and senior class members.  Current and new members must exemplify the highest ideals in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service and character.  

New inductees, standing from left to right include: Tyler Ramsay, Nick Hall, Savana Sims, Mary Garloch, Tylar Eden, Dylan Marling, Taylor Price, Morgan Runyan, Olivia Tranovich, Josh Bumgardner, and Alex Touchette.




Pictured are the first and second place spelling bee champions from Bellaire. First place winner was Maddie Beckett, right, and second place winner is Jenna Miller, left. Both students will advance to the Belmont County Spelling Bee at Ohio University Eastern, to be held on Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. The bee is sponsored by The Times Leader, Riesbeck's, and East Central Ohio ESC.


 The Bellaire Middle School was again recognized by the Ohio Department of Education as a 2014 School of Promise.  This is the third consecutive year that the school has received this honor.

This award is based on improved math and reading scores as signified on the Ohio Local Report Card.  It also accounts for closing the achievement gap for students from every background.  The Middle School was one of 98 elite schools chosen from across the state and will receive a banner to display in their building in the coming weeks.



The school district is requesting when there is a change in a student drop off destination that a signed parent notice must be provided to the child’s Principal’s office.

Ohio State Law only requires that the school district drop off students at their home residence.  As a courtesy, and only in extenuating circumstances, will students be dropped off at an alternative location.
