Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Athol District Curriculum
Athol High School’s school-wide learning expectations include actively and critically reading for understanding, writing effectively for a variety of purposes, using technology to retrieve and communicate information, and using critical thinking and problem solving skills. The high school has several beliefs about student learning. This includes students having a strong work ethic and academic integrity; having effective time management, organizational, and study skills; being willing to take academic risks; and engaging in goal-setting and self-assessment.
Other beliefs the school has about student learning are built around the educators proving an environment of mutual respect, making the content relevant to students’ lives, setting clear expectations, making interdisciplinary connections, making learning engaging and inspiring, and modeling behavior and thinking for students. The curriculum fosters these skills by emphasizing cross curriculum literacy and problem-solving development and the ability to work on collaborative projects that use students communication and creative thinking skills.

Keeping Informed: Recent Athol Educational News
- Kindergarten Earns Accreditation - After two decades of working very hard to earn accreditation, Athol Royalston Regional’s kindergarten program finally earned the coveted NAEYC accreditation. This voluntary accreditation for early childhood programs is extremely difficult to obtain, especially since 2006, when the standards became even higher. To earn this prestigious accreditation, Athol’s program had to go through a very comprehensive and rigorous process which involved a self-study that measured the program against NAEYC standards and criteria as well as a visit to each school from the association.
- Breaking Ground for New Elementary School - Recently, students, teachers, administrators, and parents attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Athol Elementary School, which is set to open in time for the 2016-17 school year. The ceremony featured smiling, singing children who were excited to learn in their new school in the future.

Chalk Talk: The Look of the Elementary Classroom
In spite of evolving educational technology, many elementary classrooms often have a certain traditional look to them. There will be bulletin boards with themes that change or stay the same. The alphabet—capital and lowercase letters—and a number line will be posted above the chalkboard, with cursive letters in the older grades. A large calendar with holidays will be on display and will be used on a daily basis by the primary students working with dates, numbers, and seasons. Students may sit at desks or tables, but there is often a large table in the back of the room for students to work at. Many classrooms will have a cozy classroom library area. Desks typically have name tags. Finally, when youngsters are involved, teachers usually supply their rooms with materials to keep things sanitary, such as Kleenex, hand sanitizer, and wipes or a cleaning spray.
