It is with great sadness that I let you know I will not be returning to Belmont in the fall.
Unfortunately, I am being displaced and will have a different position somewhere.
I will miss all of you and have loved my time at Belmont as your very proud principal.
The teachers and staff will guide and support our students as learners and I know the
fabulous alumni will continue their participation.
Students, if you need to reach me, please let one of the office staff or counselors know. They have my cell number. I am available as you need.
I wish you the best this coming year and hope to see you at some games!
Once a Sentinel, always a Sentinel!
With love and respect for Belmont and for you,
Kristen McGregor, Ed.D.
Principal – Belmont High School
Administrators Dr. McGregor and Carolina Robles hosted a special lunch for the staff featuring delicious offerings from a taco truck in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week. Enjoying a reprieve from the normal lunch fare, teachers savored a chance to commune with colleagues over a freshly cooked meal. Thanks to everyone who made this sweet gesture of appreciation possible.
William Crews and his Special Learners traveled to San Diego by train and visited a historic aircraft carrier harbored in the bay. “The students gained confidence by climbing the staircases and enjoyed interacting and hearing the history of the ship,” said William Crews. Parents of Belmont’s Special Learners also attended this fun filled day in the outdoors.
Former Belmont ROTC teacher Sergeant Davis accompanied the Belmont group with a class from Inglewood and presented his former colleague with a plaque to commemorate his years of service in the profession. “It was a nice feeling to see Sergeant Davis giving him the recognition because Mr. Crews has dedicated so much to the kids,” said Sentinel photographer Jessica Morales.
The train ride to and from San Diego added extra excitement and a chance to bond along the way. “The interaction with regular education students always helps both groups to learn about each other,” concluded Crews.
