Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Coram District Curriculum
To help support the young students, the elementary schools regularly hold workshops for parents to provide them with the tools and strategies they need to implement their children’s education into the home. The middle school curriculum is designed for students in fifth and sixth grade and helps them transition from an elementary setting to an interdisciplinary team (in fifth grade) and a departmentalized program (in sixth grade).
Also, the middle schools have been recognized for their Academic Interdisciplinary Period (AIP), which greatly reduces the need for students with special learning needs to be pulled out of the regular classroom and allows students to concentrate on special interests. Eighth grade students participate in creative team planning, which helps foster collaboration and flexibility for learning. In high school, the curricular options range from rigorous college preparatory courses to career-focused electives that help to develop the 21st century learning skills sought in the curriculum.

Chalk Talk: Keeping Lockers Organized
Middle and high school students generally have a lot in their lockers, and they often become messy. They often throw their belongings in their locker--not having enough time to be organized between classes. However, this can cause issues when they lose something and have to empty out their entire locker. A locker organizer with compartments of various sizes can help keep things organized. Students may want to clean out their lockers once a week or so. Another idea is to keep a garbage bag in the locker to keep trash in and throw away at least weekly. However, students should avoid putting food in there or else their locker will smell! They should also refrain from keeping their sweaty gym clothes in there overnight. Another tip is to avoid throwing school assignments straight in the locker (without putting them in a folder or binder) so that they don't get lost or ruined. It is a good idea to keep as much in the locker as possible—heavy backpacks can hurt kids' backs—but students still need to keep their lockers clean and organized.
