Walk At Lunch Day

On Wednesday April 24, students from the Bellows Falls Middle School walked around downtown Bellows Falls as part of BlueCross BlueShield’s National Walk At Lunch Day”. This event is designed to encourage youth and adults to start a healthy fitness routine by taking a daily walk. Due to the middle school’s various lunch schedules, students and faculty participated in the walk during morning advisory instead and had a great start to their day!

Learning Highlight: Cori Santagate, historical re-enactor, visited the eighth grade on April 1, 2019. He brought his D-Day kit and explained the nuances of the allied invasion.

Greetings from Mr. Aquadro

Mr. Dana Aquadro, Assistant Principal

I’m honored to take the next step of my career at the Bellows Falls Middle School. Middle schoolers are a great age group; it’s a time when students are beginning to figure out their passions and take steps to turn their dreams into realities.  As assistant principal, I’ll be able to work with all of the students and families for many years. I’m delighted to continue contributing to Bellows Falls and the surrounding communities.
