With the arrival of spring, we look forward to deep green grass, beautiful flowers, bright sunshine, and blue skies! As Robin Williams once said, “Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s Party!” But Wait! Before we begin the party at BST, the Standards of Learning tests must take place.
For Belmont Station Elementary, May brings SOL testing. Our third, fourth, and fifth graders will be among their peers throughout the state involved in this testing process from May 3rd through May 30th.
Our teachers have focused instruction on the standards outlined by the state and our students are well prepared for these assessments. Additionally, many technology based programs have been used to prepare the children for tests across the curriculum. We have also used SOL Pass, ePATS, Study Island, Reflex, Brain Pop and a number of great computerized games and visuals to help our students learn and retain information.
Belmont Station has continuously provided teachers with staff development and benchmarking opportunities to assess the effectiveness of our instructional program. We have taken advantage of every possibility to improve our many programs, and hopefully, as a result, retain our excellent test scores.
The Parent Portal will be opened for grades K-2 at the beginning of the third quarter. Login information will be sent to parents who have completed a request form on or about January 22, 2013.
