EPA Testing

December 12, 2016

 

Dear Bellaire Local School Parents:

 

I hope this letter finds you and your family well and trust you are in the midst of holiday preparations.

 

As many of you may know, the U.S. EPA and Ohio EPA have been testing the soil and groundwater in the Village of Bellaire for some while.  The purpose of this letter is to inform you that while your child is on his/her 2016 holiday break, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) will be testing Bellaire High School as part of this testing program.  The sampling will test for the presence of the chemical tetrachloroethylene (PCE).

 

Tetrachloroethylene (also known as PCE, Perchloroethylene or PERC) has been used in a variety of commercial applications including dry cleaning and metal degreasing.  PCE is a member of the family of chemicals known as volatile organic compounds (VOCS).  The nature of PCE, and VOC chemicals in general, are they easily turn from a liquid to a gas when they are exposed to the soil or air.  Therefore, PCE has the potential, as a vapor, to move through the soil and can work its way into building substructures, such as basements where it can accumulate in the indoor air.

This match up is the seventh oldest in the state of Ohio, beginning in 1907. Bellaire leads Martins Ferry in the win column 53-48 with seven games ending in a tie. Each year the two teams compete for SPARKY, a trophy that stands for Sportsmanship, Participation, Achievement, Rivalry, Knowledge, and Youth.

Students are permitted to dress up all week to show their team spirit.  This year the themed days are Monday-America Day, Tuesday-Cartoon Character Day, Wednesday-Crazy Day, Thursday-Purple and White Day, and Friday being Red and Black Day.

Also on Thursday, Oct 27, will be the annual Pep Rally and Bonfire beginning at 6:00 pm in the Bellaire High School Auditorium. The parade will march to Nelson Field after the rally for the tradition bonfire.

Levy Support Letter

Warning to Bellaire Ohio  - Your kid’s future may be at risk:

Your children’s future depends on your support to vote YES for the upcoming levy on the Nov 8!

Your community’s future depends on your support to vote YES for the upcoming levy on the Nov 8!

On Nov 8th Bellaire will once again have the opportunity to fund and support the children and community by passing the proposed school Levy.   The sad history for the success of this levy is that in the last 8 times that the Levy has been presented it has been voted DOWN by the community.

Eight times since 2010 the school district has made an attempt to fund and support the children of its community.  Eight times the community has said NO.

In those eight years programs have been cut and some eliminated altogether.  As noted in the most recent newspaper article there is no music, art or physical education in the elementary or middle schools.  This is sad, very sad to know that the future of these young children is riding on the tax payers.  If students were able to vote for their own education I am sure the Levy would pass.

Mr. Scot McMahon Is the Voice of the Big Reds in and outside the Classroom

By: Haley Ault and De ’Asia Burney

New Bellaire High School social studies teacher Mr. Scot McMahon says his number one priority is his students.

He has a background in history, which he teaches through film along with American History class. You may also recognize his voice from Nelson Field during Saturday games.

 He is a Bellaire High School graduate and went on to West Virginia University to get his undergrad. He then continued at Ohio Northern and got his law degree, and finally received his teaching certification from Wheeling Jesuit.

Mr. McMahon stated that his favorite part of teaching at Bellaire High School, so far, is interacting with the students. One thing he would like to see instituted at the school is the programs of the past that have been cut due to money issues be brought back.

One thing he wants students to know about him, he says, “I’m here for them, and if they ever have a problem or a question never hesitate to come and ask.”

                By: Lili Yocum and Scott Mehlman

                An alumnus and previous teacher of Bellaire High School, Mr. Paul Xenakis has returned to teach chemistry and physics.

Mr. Xenakis studied at West Liberty University and West Virginia University, while majoring in Chemistry and minoring in Physics.

Back at Bellaire, he believes he can help out with the science program. Mr. Xenaxis also shows his love for everything about his alma mater. Formerly a teacher at St.John’s Catholic High School, this educator also likes to coach discus.


Mr. Paden Stewart Teaches Math and Coaches Wrestling

By: Scott Mehlman and Lili Yocum

Mr. Paden Stewart  is currently teaching Algebra, Applied Math, and Consumer Math at Bellaire High School. He attended River High school and has coached wrestling there. After high school he  graduated from West Liberty University and came to teach at our high school when an opportunity appeared for him.

                In the classroom, Mr. Stewart takes a hands-on approach to get his students to learn by a little competition and showing their work on the board. He would also like to see math books brought into the classroom. Mr. Stewart would like his students to know that he has a zero tolerance policy for not wanting to learn. In addition to his classroom duties,  Mr. Stewart is going to be assistant wrestling coach.

His favorite aspect of BHS so far is the school spirit!


Miss Blair Bolden Has Passion for English

By: Shavarr Price and Chase Yoho

With a passion for literature and an optimistic outlook on life, Miss Blair Bolden plans on making a huge impact on our students’ lives as an English teacher at Bellaire High School.   

Miss Bolden’s previous education at Greensburg Central Catholic and later at Saint Vincent College in Pennsylvania, has allowed her to develop a love for reading and teaching. This eager attitude is something that she wishes to pass on to the students of our school through literature.                                                                                                                                               

Although she is now a teacher, her first career choice was as a social worker. Realizing she could more effectively impact young adults as an educator, she decided to follow in her family trade and become a teacher. Miss Bolden instantly liked the idea of teaching in Bellaire due to the small town feeling, the tremendous students and amazing faculty here.

Mr. Kaz Pata Is New to Bellaire

By: Hannah D’Aquila and Danielle Gilli

Welcome Mr. Kaz Pata, the new Bellaire High School multiple resource teacher.

Mr. Pata graduated from St. Clairsville High School and Ohio University. He originally didn’t major in education, but then later started substituting which led him to enjoy teaching. After realizing he liked being around students, he went back to college to get a teaching degree.

Since he has begun to teach here, his favorite aspect has been the staff, students and how generous everyone is. Mr. Pata would like to see more sports incorporated into our school such as: golf, soccer, lacrosse, etc.

                Besides teaching, he is a football, basketball and track coach for St. Clairsville’s junior high school. He wants students to know that he’s definitely a fun guy and doesn’t want to be looked at as just a teacher.

Miss Kylie Seevers Joins BHS Staff

By: Alex Street

Graduating from Bellaire High School, Miss Kylie Seevers, is back and excited to educate!  SHe is a teacher of Earth and Space Science, S.T.E.M. and Physical Science.  She recently graduated from West Liberty University and is eager to bring what she learned to her alma mater.       

 “I’ve always had an interest in science and feeding the penguins at the zoo, but that is too far from home, so getting to get kids as excited about science as I am, surpasses getting to feed penguins,” explained Miss Seevers. 

She says the students at Bellaire High are motivated and want to learn.  Although, she says that she’d like the students to know that she is still young and knows all the tricks they’re trying to pull because she has mastered them herself.

Miss Seevers would like to see better opportunities in and out of the classroom including a variety of sports and more technological advancements.  She also says that it is very nice to come back to her roots and give back to a school that gave so much to her.


BHS Welcomes Mr Jayson Keyser

By: Shavarr Price and Chase Yoho

Mr. Jayson Keyser is thrilled to be a member of the BHS family once again, but this time as a teacher. Mr. Keyser, who graduated from Bellaire, taught at the middle school last year and has now returned to teach health and physical education.

His athletic background paves the way for his new career as a PE and health teacher.  He was a gifted athlete while performing for the red and black. Bringing home a state runner up medal in track and field is one of his many great athletic accomplishments. Later on, Mr. Keyser participated in athletics while receiving his degree at West Liberty University.                                          

Returning to the wonderful staff and students here at Bellaire High School is something he is very excited about because of its familiarity. Although very excited to come back, Mr. Keyser would love to see an increase in the number of PE classes here at his alma mater.                                                                       

Above all else, Mr. Jayson Keyser is thrilled to be back at his old high school once more as a faculty member.

Baseball Field Announcment

Bellaire Local Schools, the Bellaire Park District, and Bellaire Jr. Sports are working together to improve the baseball field (Chase Field) at  26th Street, thanks to a resolution passed by the village council on Thursday, September 1.  The groups have been working on this arrangement for several months.  Bellaire Jr. Sports and the Bellaire Park District have done a tremendous job at the 26th Street Fields and the Bellaire Local Schools is excited to be a part of these improvements.  It is hoped that this will lead to other groups working together to better Bellaire.  

Bellaire Local Schools, through QZAB, will be able to put a significant amount of money into the field improvements.  The field has been in dire need of major upgrades for sometime.  Plans are to upgrade the playing surface, add all new fencing and a scoreboard, along with other upgrades.  School officials want to be a positive partner in the community and understand the importance of recreational opportunity for all youth in Bellaire.  

The agreement states that the Bellaire High School baseball team will have exclusive rights to the use of the field during their season for a term of fifty years with the possibility of renewing the agreement prior to the end of the term.   Bellaire Jr Sports and the high school baseball team will work together to hold tournaments.  Bellaire Jr. Sports will be able to use the field for practice and games when the high school team is not using it.  Thanks to Irish Youth Sports, the Bellaire Jr. Sports flag football program will be moved to their complex.  This move makes the improvements at the baseball field possible.  As plans progress further details will be available.

Queen of Queens

Congratulations to the winner of the  Queen of Queens Contest Kaitlyn Callarik. She will represent Bellaire Schools in the OVAC Queen of Queens Contest on July 21st at Capitol Theater in Wheeling at 7:00PM.


High School Repairs

Many of you have probably noticed the scaffolding at the high school and are wondering what is going on.  Upon inspection of the building we noticed an issue with moisture getting  into the wall, with no air space or any weeps for water to escape.  The stone has pushed out from this freeze-thaw condition.  This force has caused many of the original anchors to fail, allowing the stone to roll out of the wall.  We found the steel support angles have rusted and delaminated.  On the third floor, we have observed the other header stones are being pushed out and the rust jacking of the steel is pushing downward on the window frames.  The concrete header above the third floor is moving out and appears to have dropped down in the center.  The force of this movement has caused cracks and movement in several pieces.  We can also see the top floor header course is moving outward and this course has the masonry cornice and parapet bearing down and is connected to the roof, floors and masonry.  We have also noticed one of the second floor headers on the west end has pushed out several inches.
