Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Morris District Curriculum
A major part of Morris’ health sciences curriculum is teaching children healthy ways of communicating with others. Learners identify healthy and unhealthy ways to express their emotions, and learn essential conflict resolution skills as well. Students brainstorm ways to be thoughtful of others’ feelings, learning how to empathize with others and validate their feelings. Showing care and consideration for others is also emphasized. Students learn how to take ownership of their behavior and actions as an important part of the curriculum is teaching responsibility.
Citizenship and government are two essential components of the middle school social studies curriculum in Morris. Students identify different levels of government, such as local, state, and federal, and outline their basic functions. Learners also explore the process by which laws are proposed, created, and implemented by various levels of government. The manner in which government is funded, such as through taxes, is examined as well. Students identify the various types of taxes that citizens must pay, and analyze how tax revenue is used to enhance services that benefit the community.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: What Parents Should Expect in Kindergarten
Sending your child to school can be a stressful time for you and your child both. But kindergarten is designed to be incredibly supportive of your child so he or she can make the transition from preschool into public school. Much of kindergarten focuses on building essential skills, such as speaking and listening, sharing, social and emotional skills, and of course academic skills. The vehicle by which these skills are developed is typically through some form of play – games to learn academic skills, cooperative play to learn how to share, and so forth. There are a lot of hands-on activities as well, so children stay engaged and focused on learning. By making kindergarten a fun, supportive, and active atmosphere, your child’s teacher will help prepare your child to continue their education throughout elementary, middle, and high school.
