  • Principal's Bulletin #21 Dear Belmont Family,The next time you find yourself in our local Starbucks, look for original photographs by Belmont Photography Club students.  The club advisors reached out to the local area shops to have the student work displayed and they were met with a great deal of enthusiasm because of the quality and originality of the pieces.  This is a great way to showcase student success and to let the extended community see how talented our students are.   Just see for yourself, since a picture is worth a thousand words. The photos are on display at the Starbucks on 440 E. Fordham Road, around the corner from Belmont! Fondly,Principal Gumbs
