School District of Beloit February 2022 Highlights
National Kindergarten Day!
We celebrated our kindergarten classes across the District. Our students are smart, smiling, and happy kindergarteners.
Hackett Teacher, Cindy Weber
Congratulations to Cindy Weber from Hackett Elementary School for being named Rotary Teacher of the Month! She became a teacher to help young people on their journey to be successful in their lives and careers. Ms. Weber has taught in the School District of Beloit for 25 years. She is one of the many dedicated teachers and staff we are lucky to have in our district.
Several of our intermediate school students participated in the BookQuest competition at Beloit Public Library. Our students had a lot of fun and even had the chance to meet and talk to Author, John Coy.
Congratulations to the winning teams from our District!

April Community Partners
We celebrated and recognized Dabadooya and Company, Stateline Boys and Girls Club, and 360 Signs & Wonders Graphics! Thank you to these amazing individuals, businesses, and organizations who extend outreach and support to our students, families, schools, and district.
Dog House Build
Our high school Construction 3 students mentored and worked alongside our intermediate school students. Together they built a dog house that will be donated to the Humane Society. Students helping students for a good cause – what can be better than that? A special thank you to BMHS teacher, Mike Wagner, for making this happen!
National Assistant Principal Week
We thanked and celebrated our Assistant Principals who are making a difference in the lives of our students and families. This year’s celebration of our APs takes on an even greater significance, as we recognize all that they have overcome amid the pandemic to stay connected to our students and support them in their academic, social, and emotional well-being.
National Volunteer Month
April is National Volunteer Month, and we want extend a sincere thank you to our more than 415 SDB volunteers. Our students look forward to our volunteers coming into their schools, and being supportive. Whether it’s a family member volunteering for a field trip; a college student helping in an after-school program; a retired teacher reading to a student; a community member mentoring and tutoring a student; or a community partner providing classroom presentations; each and every volunteer is making a difference in the lives of our students.
