Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Centerville District Curriculum
The Iowa Core Standards in Science calls on students to learn about the process of scientific investigation and discovery, develop scientific literacy, and gain a strong base of knowledge that they can use to tackle advanced topics. By 8th grade, students are working on topics such as Motion and Stability in which they investigate the effects of different strengths or directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object. They will also examine concepts in Energy, such as solar energy, and conduct experiments to limit the effects of sunlight.
Students also study Molecules and Organisms and are required to observe patterns of what plants and animals need to survive. Instruction in topics such as this also serve to develop students ability to communicate their scientific observations and present valid scientific data. Students also study Earth’s Systems and track weather conditions and patterns and develop an argument supported by evidence for how plants and animals can change the environment to meet their needs and the role of interdependence among plants, animals, and the environment.

Keeping Informed: Recent Centerville Educational News
- Students Plan for Christmas on a Budget - A local homeowner approached Centerville High family and consumer science students with a challenge: plan Christmas for a family using only the $200 she provided to them. This was especially a challenge because the class only contained four students, and they had to provide Christmas dinner, presents, and decorations to the family and stay on-budget. Students purchased a $50 gift card for the family to use on food, bought a gift for each of the five members of the family, and used the remaining funds to purchase the decorations.
- Centerville Students Attend Environmental Conference - Recently, three students from Centerville High’s FFA headed to Dubuque to attend a Student Environmental Conference. While there, the students learned about the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium and the animals in it, the importance of the life cycle of the native mussels, and soil conservation. They also went to the Mississippi River, where they caught several animals, including turtles, striped bass, and orange-spotted sunfish.
- Centerville High Debuts Bowling - The 2015-16 school year has seen the debut of Centerville High’s first-ever bowling season. Although the school was initially going to share a team with another school, there ended up being enough interest for Centerville to field its own team. The team consists of 28 members—16 boys and 12 girls. The bowling team allows students who have never competed in high school sports to get involved.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Children’s Literature Spotlight
Although The Easter Bunny that Overslept—written by Patricia and Otto Friedrich and illustrated by Adrienne Adams—is about the Easter Bunny, it has some relevancy around Christmastime as well. In this charming story, the Easter Bunny slept through Easter because there was no sun to awake him. Weeks later, he woke up and thought it was Easter. He delivered eggs, but nobody wanted them, so he decided to become a Fourth of July bunny. Still, nobody wanted his eggs. At Christmastime, he visited Santa Claus. The bunny helped him make toys and even delivered presents to houses in which the chimney was too narrow for Santa to slide down. When the night was over, Santa gave the Easter Bunny a golden alarm clock. The following Easter, the bunny was right on time, as the alarm clock awoke him.
