The PTOs sponsor a wide variety of programs and events at each school, including the Kindergarten Extended Day programs, the After School programs, and Arts and Enrichment programs to supplement the curriculum at all grade levels. Each school also has a School Advisory Council comprised of the school principal, teachers, parents, and community representatives. The role of the Council is to assist the principal in identifying the educational needs of students, adopting educational goals for the school, reviewing the annual budget, and developing the annual School Improvement Plan. These plans guide the school administration, staff, volunteers, and parent community in working toward achieving a set of mutually-agreed upon goals. The Belmont Special Education Advisory Council welcomes parents with similar interests. In addition, parents are involved in the review of curriculum and are often asked to serve on a curriculum steering committee.
Program topics include arts and crafts, theatre, computers, and sports. Courses are held at the Chenery Middle School and run for one to four weeks during July. More information about Summer program is available here.
