Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Colonial Heights District Curriculum
Kindergarten is the beginning point of becoming a fluent and comprehensive reader. By the time the students finish this grade they are able to recognize many sight words, along with the phonics that make up these words. The education in sight words continues for a few more years but it is expanded upon as the students begin to recognize words as parts of speech, such as nouns, verbs, and adverbs. By the time they graduate, they will know how to diagram sentences, and use the skills they have acquired to read classic novels.
The world of science opens around the students of Colonial Heights Public School when they first discover that there is more to the world than they first suspected. Children in the early grades learn about plants and plant parts, the weather, and the idea that natural resources are limited. At they mature, they delve deeper into the study of advanced science as they begin studying heredity by using Punnett Squares, looking for multiple alleles and studying genetic engineering.

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 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: Healthy Lunchbox Snacks
To help save money, many parents will pack their student’s lunches for school. The difficulty comes in picking foods to place in the lunch that the student likes and that is healthy for them. Here are a few ideas of things to try. For the child that likes a little crunch in their lunch, honey-roasted cashews or almonds are a great choice, even dark chocolate nuts make a healthy option for those that have a sweet tooth. Another healthy alternative for a child’s lunch is homemade popcorn or the ones in the store that do not have a lot of salt or butter added. Snacks made with whole grain, like crackers, pretzels, or tortilla chips are excellent. So are fruit or veggie items like baby carrots, apples, pear or bananas. The most important thing to remember is the child’s preferences and then to find a healthy alternative so both, parent and child are winners.
