School District of Beloit September 2022 Highlights
Visit from Governor Evers
Governor Tony Evers made a special visit to Merrill Elementary! Our students and staff enjoyed meeting him - we appreciated the time he took to stop by classrooms and chat with our students. It was a fun morning for everyone!
Craftsmen with Character
Craftsmen with Character is a job shadow, character education and job skill course in its first year at Beloit Memorial High School. We are grateful for the collaboration and support offered by Frito Lay, Edgerton Gear, CCI, The Morse Group, Scot Forge, the City of Beloit, and Blackhawk Technical College. Students in this course spend a portion of each day at one of our partner sites. While on site, students receive mentoring and instruction on the skills and training that are needed for jobs at these worksites. Fridays are spent in a classroom setting reflecting on what they have learned over the course of the previous week and exploring the character traits, skills, and education that is needed to successfully obtain and retain a job in a field of their choice.
Fruzen Intermediate School
Fruzen Intermediate hosted a fabulous and engaging assembly for their students on Monday. Northern Illinois Raptor Rehab and Education visited and presented information about Falcons and even brought two Falcons. Fruzen will have each grade build their community around a certain type of Falcon for part of their Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports program. Special thanks to 5th grade teacher, Ms. Sharon Carr for arranging the assembly

Thank You Greater Beloit Chamber of Commerce for hosting the Influential Women in Business event yesterday. We enjoyed your guest speaker, Tracie Burress – what an engaging presentation with great advice. An all-around wonderful event.
Reading and Sharing at Gaston Elementary
Gaston kindergarten students have started their Bandit Bookbags. Students “shopped” for books in the classroom and took the books home to share with their families. We really appreciated our BMHS students who came to read with our kindergartners and helped them practice their reading skills.
