Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Buford District Curriculum
Mathematics learning throughout all grades involves developing and improving number sense, computation, measurement and spatial recognition. In middle school, students begin to deal with greater level of complexity within math problems and must become familiar with working with word problems. Problem solving, logical and quantitative reasoning skills are emphasized as students make connections between concepts and real-world application.
English Language Arts learning focuses on the skills of reading, speaking, listening and language through the use of informational themes, short narratives, conducting research, media viewing, writing and presentation. Students are continuously using these elements through K-12 grades, not only as part of the English Language Arts curriculum, but also integrated into other core subjects, such as Science, Social Studies and Technical Education (9-12 grades).

Chalk Talk: Balancing School and Extracurricular Activities
Students are in school most of the day, bringing home with them probably a few more hours of school work. In between that, your child may be involved in afterschool activities, such as sports, clubs or league. At the time your child does get home from their activity, knowing schoolwork (i.e., homework) has to be done can be daunting to them as well as take away from possible family time. Every family has their own method or way of managing the coming, going and doing of each family member. Some children start their homework while dinner is getting ready, others clean up, shower, get their things ready for the next day to leave homework for after dinner. As a family, students and parents should work together to find the right balance. It may take trial and error once a school year starts. A day or week may not be the same as the previous, so finding a routine may be hard but it will be worth it.
