Belmont Welcomes Assistant Principal Jorge Calderon

A Message from Mr. Calderon,

Starting a new year gives us the opportunity to make new plans, design new strategies, and implement new ideas. There is a special kind of joy and satisfaction in planning lessons and activities for a new class; for although the grade level or subject may be the same, the students are new, and they will appreciate the planning that is done for them. Whether one’s responsibility is administrating, supervising, teaching, preparing lunches, maintaining a building, or managing an office, there is always room for improvement and new ways to do a good job better.

As your new assistant principal, I am very happy to be a member of the Belmont family. Each of us is a part of the fabric that holds things together here. Belmont is a great place to be because of you, our dedicated staff, and our parents and community, sharing a common goal ~ to do what is best for our students ~ and looking for ways to build on and achieve that goal.

As we embark upon our mission, we must concentrate on the processes that spark continuous growth: evaluating what we are doing, determining what we can do to improve, and by identifying what we need in order to make those improvements. In whatever we do, we must hold high expectations of ourselves and of our students, we must be accountable for the work we do and we must share in the responsibility of making sure our students are successful.

I look forward to another great year! In so doing, I invite you to share in the mission and vision of our school, providing all of our students with high quality teaching and learning and exposure to college and careers, in an environment that is safe and secure with many experiences and opportunities that will guide them in becoming lifelong learners and productive members of society.

To my fellow Sentinel families and friends

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.

Special Learners Travel to San Diego and Board USS Midway Ship

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.
