Dear Belvedere Families:
It is hard to believe that the 2018-2019 school year is coming to an end! The year has gone by so quickly, and we have so much to be proud of. We especially want to thank you, our parents, for your support, time and dedication to making Belvedere a school where all students engage in meaningful and interesting learning opportunities.
Students in grades three through five completed all Virginia Standards of Learning tests, and we are so proud of their dedication and perseverance! Preliminary scores will be sent home tomorrow with student progress reports. Please note that students who took retakes on paper may not have the most up to date scores on their reports. Official score reports will be sent home in August 2019 once the Virginia Department of Education has verified all scores.
During the summer months, we encourage you to make sure that your child reads a little bit every day. You may want to read with your child; your child may want to read to a friend, sibling, or stuffed animal, or your child may want to read alone. Reading every day will ensure that his or her reading skills remain strong throughout the summer. We encourage you to also check out the summer learning opportunities shared below by some of our teachers.
Thank you for your support this school year. We could not wish for better partners to continue making Belvedere a great place to learn. We wish you a wonderful summer!
