Student Council & Service Learning

At Belmont Oaks Academy students are given a variety of leadership opportunities. Led by our teacher moderators (Ms. Zanette and Ms. Knibbs), our elected 5th grade students lead our younger students in activities to promote school spirit. Representatives from each class meet once a month to plan spirit days and community service projects.


Service Learning

Working together as a community our school is proud to partner with local non-profit groups with the goal making a difference in the lives of others. Our school-wide service learning projects gives our students and families a chance to contribute their time and effort in helping other children and families in need. Currently, we have partnered with Second Harvest of Silicon Valley and are participating in a virtual food drive Team MMBOA page.
