Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shrewsbury District Curriculum

On the curriculum section of Shrewsbury Public Schools’ website, state guideless for literacy are posted for grades K-4; these include whole group learning expectations, comprehension strategies, fluency scope, comprehension scope and sequence, and a literacy map. The curriculum maps for the main content areas are posted for grades 5-8. For instance, fifth graders begin to use resource books such as a dictionary and thesaurus to confirm their understanding of word parts and types, which they use to deepen their comprehension of texts. As a result, students become able to use a character’s feelings, actions and thoughts to describe their traits. They also learn to discern and describe the meanings behind imagery found in the story.

The curriculum is intertwined in the district’s goals; it strives to challenge students academically and advance the Shrewsbury Writing Project, which has the goal of increasing writing in the content areas. Shrewsbury also emphasizes implementing technology in instruction at all levels.

Witkowski, Jr., a custodian at Sherwood Middle School who recently passed away, was missed by the students and staff who called him “Bernie.” Witkowski was instrumental in the early opening of Sherwood Middle School in 2012, which was important as the old middle school was facing overcrowding.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Extracurriculars

When students think about the main things that colleges look at when selecting applicants, they mainly think about grades and SAT (or ACT) scores. While these may be the most important criteria, schools also like well-rounded students. Those who are involved in extracurricular activities interest colleges. Such extra activities go far beyond athletics. There are often many clubs and organizations that cater to academics, skills, and hobbies. Academic clubs may include the National Honor Society, science club, a technology club, and a quiz bowl team. Foreign language teachers frequently head clubs such as French Club and Spanish Club; members often have the opportunity to visit foreign countries. Political clubs may include student government or council and a debate team. Students who are interested in the arts and music can join an art club, chorus or glee club, theater or drama club, or band. Writers will likely enjoy being a part of the school newspaper or yearbook. Many organizations involve giving back in some way or delivering an important message; examples include “Best Buddies,” which forms friendships between students with disabilities and those without disabilities.
