Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bloomsburg District Curriculum
With these goals in mind, schools within the Bloomsburg Area School District provide courses that conform to the standards set forth by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Core studies in English and math are emphasized from Kindergarten on, where students are taught reading and writing and arithmetic skills and evaluated to ensure that they are maintaining proficient scores. The content knowledge that students learn prepares them for critical thinking and analytic work they will face in their high school courses.
Students also take social studies classes where they learn about history, geography, and much more at a level appropriate to their grade. Students are provided with interactive activities that allow them not only to hear information, but experience it. They are also exposed to music and arts where they learn new ways to express themselves, and pick up aesthetic values while learning how to understand art. They are able to use their creativity and work on projects that have a lasting impact in the schools.

Chalk Talk: How to Keep Your Student Safe from Bullying
Bullying has become a more and more publicized issue in recent years. So what are some things parents can do to help prevent it? Many schools have programs in place to discuss bullying and talk about solutions. Parents can take these opportunities to reinforce information at home. Asking your child about what they learned and walking them through how to apply the information even at home with siblings or with friends in the neighborhood can be helpful. Make sure your home is bully free as well. Your child can be taught to identify examples of bullying: those supporting the bully, the bully themselves and examples of the victim. These can be learned through charades, role plays, and other hands on methods. Once your child is able to identify bullying behavior, encourage them to befriend those who might be less popular and stand up for the kids who might be more likely to be bullied. All of these things can help your child in both the school environment as well as at home.
