Along with helping students prepare for the state exams with Test Sophistication classes, Dr. Melissa Haidary, principal of The Castlewood School in Bellerose, sought to put an extra positive spin on test days. As students were dropped off for the first day of state testing, they were greeted by staff and students alike cheering them on to do their very best.

To a cheer of “don’t sweat the test – just do your best!” they walked up a row of enthusiastic students and their teachers cheering on both sides with pom-poms shaking and lots of best wishes for success. Dr. Haidary and staff have planned other fun surprises to offer the students support – such as Smiley Face Wristbands to wear while taking the exams, extra recess time and no homework for the week - just to name a few.

Castlewood wishes all students taking the State Exams the best of luck.
