Do you know the story behind the wooden mascot that stands regally at the school’s entrance? The statue was a gift for the school from the class of 1962. They made the decision during the fall of 1961 and money was collected from the class members to pay for the gift. The sculptor, Ramon Rocha, sketched the Drum Major Sandy Smith as the model for the statue. The project was done before the May 1962 graduation. It continues to be one of the defining symbols of Bel Air’s Big Red Pride.

In a bid to help support the wellness, health, and development of students, the Ysleta Independent School District has launched a new “supper program” at several area schools, primarily to provide free and nutritious meals to active students who remain on campus after school for extracurricular activities.
The after school meals are being offered from 3:45 to 4:45 p.m. on school days here at Bel Air High School. The meals are free of charge to children 18 years and younger, but are also available for purchase by adults. The supper program is funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Child and Adult Care Food Program.
