Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Absecon District Curriculum
The districts believe in developing a curriculum that will meet a child’s needs not only in the present but in their future. To that end, the district has created an organizational framework that guides curricular planning from Kindergarten all the way through Grade 8. Within the framework, cumulative progress indicators are used to determine what students should know and be able to do. Instruction is designed on a progressive scale that starts from the introduction of a topic, continues to application, and ends upon the demonstration of mastery within the subject.
Both the English Language Arts program and the Mathematics program at Absecon Public Schools are developed after the Core Curriculum Standards for instruction. This research-based, widely-accepted framework is just one component that guides the teaching and learning at all campuses. Students are encouraged to use the knowledge and skills they gain in the classroom and apply them to real-world problems, taking into account areas of cultural sensitivity and the need for global awareness in the 21st Century.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Sleep
Over the summer, children’s sleeping patterns tend to fluctuate. But when the school year starts, it is crucial for success to maintain a regular sleeping schedule. If your child displays sleep-related symptoms, such as moodiness, inability to concentrate, behavioral problems, or lowered academic performance, here are a few things you can do. First, limit pre-bedtime activities, especially those that are high-stimulation such as TV, electronics, or video games. Instead, encourage your child to read a book, listen to music, or take a walk outside. Second, create a sleep-happy environment. Research shows, children sleep better in rooms that are dark, cool, and quiet. Third, avoid afternoon naps. While it might be difficult at first, allowing your child to nap after school if they’re struggling to sleep at night is only perpetuating the problem. Encourage them to push through for a few days, even exercising or having a healthy snack after school, until they can get a full night’s rest.
