During the spring, students in grades 3-5 will participate in State testing in the areas of reading, writing, and math. Grade 5 will also be tested in science. Please see below for information on how to best support your children during this time.
Test Taking Tips for Parents:
- Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and eats a healthy and filling breakfast
- Make sure your child is on time and try to avoid absences during testing, if at all possible, as anything missed will have to be made up
- Try not to put pressure on your child. Reinforce that as long as they have worked hard and tried their best you will be proud of them
- Keep a positive attitude about testing in general around your child and emphasize their ability to demonstrate what they have learned

Belgrade Central School understands that proper nutrition is important to success in school. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks are part of our daily routine, but we also recognize that times can be difficult for some families to provide all that is needed at home. The Belgrade/Rome Food Pantry is able to serve the basic household needs of the residents of Belgrade and Rome. The Food Pantry is open Tuesdays from 9:00-11:00a.m.
Parents, please reach out if you are experiencing any concerns related to your child, or if you have any questions, using the contact information provided at the end of this letter. I can help direct you towards services for mental health, food and clothing needs, in addition to several other community resources
