  1. Gardening at BCS

    February 13, 2024

    This year, Belgrade Central School was approved for a grant that brought raised beds, lights, and seeds to their building! Students, led by teachers and a local volunteer farmer, have begun planting and growing vegetables and herbs! They will use these raised beds to learn about plant life cycles, self sustaining farming, and all the other amazing components of farming! BCS is hoping for a great crop! #WeAreRSU18

  2. Student Council

    January 30, 2024

    Belgrade Central School recently started a Student Council organized and led by Wendy Randall and Meredyth Browning. Students in third through fifth grade were invited to complete an application explaining why they wanted to be part of the group. The school was excited to receive more than 40 applications from students interested in being leaders in the building! At this time, fourteen students with big ideas on how to make BCS a better place to grow and learn were selected to represent all of the third through fifth grade classrooms. Their first project was a huge success! They organized a collection of more than 200 Christmas cards to deliver to patients at a local nursing home and rehabilitation center to brighten their holiday! The group is highly motivated and engaged in planning many fun, school-wide community building activities! They are looking forward to sharing their Friendship Gram project in February! #WeAreRSU18

  3. “Reading” in the New Year

    January 19, 2024

    Belgrade Central School is ringing in the New Year with lots of reading! On January 3, they kicked off a schoolwide Read-A-Thon. They set a goal of 10,000 minutes of reading at home and at school during the month of January. During the event, the entire school read poems for 5 minutes to earn the first 1,200 minutes of reading for the month! After 5 days, BCS students had already logged 11,000 minutes of reading at home and at school. The school already earned their goal of a sledding party with cocoa sponsored by the incredible PTO! They will now work to reach 40,000 for another prize! Students can also earn books in a raffle for their reading dedication! There are even more surprises in store for Belgrade readers! #WeAreRSU18

    As part of a folktale unit of study, Belgrade Central School students practiced and performed three short plays for a standing room only audience.

  5. Studying Chambers of the Heart

    January 9, 2024

    Mrs. Murray returned to Mrs. Bean’s fifth grade classroom at Belgrade Central School. This time she cut up deer hearts and lungs, and the students studied closely the chambers of the heart – where the lungs, esophagus, and trachea are. They looked at major vessels in the heart and had a fantastic time! Thank you, Mrs. Murray! #WeAreRSU18

  6. World Kindness Day

    January 5, 2024

    The “S” in BCS stands for Spread Kindness! In honor of World Kindness Day, the school collected just over 300 items for the Belgrade/Rome food pantry in an effort to spread kindness in the local community. BCS students and staff wore superhero shirts to honor friends, parents, athletes, and fictional superheroes on the special day! They collected $245 in donations to support the Superhero patients at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Maine Medical Center! #WeAreRSU18


  7. Popcorn Science

    January 2, 2024

    Kindergarteners in Mrs. Potts and Ms. A’s classes at Belgrade Central recently gathered as scientists to investigate the question: How does popcorn pop? Mrs. Potts shared the book, The Popcorn Book, with both classes as students brainstormed a hypothesis for the prompt, “What will happen to a popcorn kernel when it goes into oil?” Curious learners were so excited to test and observe the results of the investigation! You can imagine the excitement when popcorn leaped out of the pan with hot oil! This fun experiment ended with a sampling of various popcorn flavors to determine the students’ favorite popcorn toppings: butter, cheddar, or caramel! #WeAreRSU18


  8. Pie Making in PreK

    December 6, 2023

    Belgrade Central School recently held their special annual tradition of making pies with their preschool families to donate to local Thanksgiving gatherings!

Thank you to the BCS families for joining in helping the preschool students spread kindness in the community this year! #WeAreRSU18
