    The moment a child reads his first word…when a student solves a math problem on her own…when a student rings the bell at BHS after being accepted to college...the delight of students and staff as they start a new year…the joy when a child says, "Thank you for making a difference" after walking across the stage and turning her tassel. Every day in Belton, we have thousands of moments like these—thousands of smiles to share.  It's why we are #Proud2BPirates.
