BHS would like to extend our congratulations to the following students for their performance at the 2023 State Track and Field Meet yesterday! Nicole S. won her 2nd consecutive STATE TITLE in the Girls High Jump beating out 17 other extremely talented high jumpers from around the state of Florida in one of the last events of the evening. Nicole cleared the bar at 5 feet, 3 and 3 quarter inches to bring back to Bell the gold medal! Corbin A. also represented Bell by throwing the discus at 121 feet. Corbin was the only 8th grader in a group of mostly junior and senior throwers and even though he did not place in the top 8, he did an amazing job of competing in his event that was also delayed by several hours due to weather. Our student athletes did a phenomenal job at the state level and we are so proud of them! Coaches Brad and Libby Surrency would like to thank all of the Bell Community for supporting our track and field program and our hardworking kids that have practiced through the cold, rain, and heat and have been dedicated to their sport since the beginning of February.
The Runnin' Bulldog 2023 Track & Field Banquet will be held this Friday, 5/19 at 6:30 in the Iris Roberts Auditorium at BHS. All track and field members and their families are invited to attend. Please dress in your Sunday best. Please contact Coach Surrency or Mrs. Libby with any questions.

Friday, 5/5 is School Lunch Hero Day! The School Lunch Heroes at Bell Middle/High School are: Tammy Messier, Manager Michelle (Shelie) Barnes, Main Dish Cook Louis Arambula, Main Dish Assistant/Cashier Angie Mathis, Cashier/Dishwasher Paula Bunkley, Salads/Breakfast Cart Donna Lafler, Cashier/Salads/Breakfast Cart Shannon Lampp-Hill, Cashier/Fruit Prep Heather Cox, Cashier, Ala Carte While these are just the tip of the iceberg of the duties these Heroes perform each day, their jobs are vast. Maintaining required certification and following the current meal pattern requirements is tedious in itself. These men and women work tirelessly to get the job done, take care of the students and staff and still have a smile on their face. This year, Bell Middle/High School Cafeteria, has served over 2,000 more student lunches than last year. The staff at Bell Middle/High School work each day to make sure all students feel welcome and comfortable. Also, while ala carte sales are not the staple of our reimbursement, Bell Middle/High School has exceeded all schools in their ala carte sales by leaps and bounds – incredible work! Please remember to applaud this hard-working cafeteria staff! 💜💛🍕🍔🌮🥗
BHS is looking for a students volunteer! See details in picture. 😊
