Jeffco Schools

Students back at Belmar

Annual first day of school goes big


It was a perfect summer morning when students, parents and staff gathered outside of Belmar Elementary for the first day of school on Aug. 17.

Students were met outside the doors by balloons, music like Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” and free bagels and orange juice.

“Our first day celebration gets bigger and bigger every year,” said Principal Meredith Leighty.

Parents were able to get last minute hugs and photos, and they even got to listen to a special performance by Lakewood High School’s drum line.

“We have the best teaching staff in Jeffco,” Leighty said. “Everyone get ready to march into a great new school year.”
