A Bright Future

There has been much to celebrate with our alumni & friends program, starting with the successful conclusion of the 90 for 90 Challenge to celebrate our 90th birthday. We met our goal of 90 new donors to the BDS Annual Fund, and I am proud to say that nearly half were alumni and friends! We also released the first edition of the Belmont Day Magazine, which highlighted the past, present, and future state of the school with a significant nod to alumni highlights and the return of formalized class notes. And, we've been reconnecting with many more alumni through a series of community gatherings and events on campus. 

It was wonderful to see so many of you on campus to celebrate the opening of Belmont Day's newest building, the Barn, in December 2018. Stay tuned for information about upcoming events, including tours of this fabulous new facility. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about how the Barn will open up creative and diverse learning opportunities that will continue to make BDS an unique and forward thinking school, now and in the future. Please reach out to Director of Alumni, Andy Rentschler, at for more information, or to set up a campus visit.

I take great pleasure in reconnecting with Belmont Day through my role on the Alumni and Friends Council, and I am thrilled to tell you that Belmont Day is still the same school we all remember yet expanded, improved, and equipped for 21st century teaching and learning. As we enter our tenth decade, the future of Belmont Day looks brighter each and every day. Join me in supporting this wonderful community!
