Belleville District #118 participated, once again, in the Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce Education Committee's annual Back(Pack) to School Day at Belleville West High School on August 2, 2017.  Around 330 students from District #118 schools attended the event, enjoying free food, water and outdoor activities.  Each enrolled school-aged child up to 8th grade received a backpack filled with school supplies.  It was a great community event to help kick-off the school year made possible by unbelievable community/business support.  Thanks to everyone who participated and for the commitment to our children and their families.
