Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cornelius District Curriculum
CMS’s Social Studies standards provide students with opportunities to learn about our government, how it works, and how everyone can participate in political and social processes. Hands-on learning is emphasized with field trips to museums and historical sites, and technological resources enable students to work with the analysis of historical documents and the enhancement of geography skills.
World language and immersion language programs are offered K-12; CMS is a designated Global Communicators Program school district, thanks to its excellence in this area. Several schools in CMS offer world language classes at the middle-school level that give students high-school credit for the class. Study abroad opportunities are well-supported; partnerships have been created with nonschool organizations and businesses to provide programs that meet the needs of individual students and families. An understanding of diverse cultures is necessary in today’s global economy, and preparation begins at a young age.

Keeping Informed: Recent Cornelius Educational News
- Kiwanis Club Scholarships - students from W.A. Hough High School earned scholarships from the Lake Norman Kiwanis Club. Each of these award recipients is a member of Key Club, the high school program that is sponsored by Kiwanis International. Part of the criteria to win the scholarships is to voluntarily perform at least 50 hours of community service and write an essay covering the educational importance of leadership or volunteerism.
- Growing a Pizza? - Students at JV Washam Elementary planted a pizza…well, the vegetables and herbs for pizza toppings, anyway. The “Field to Fork” program, sponsored by local organizations and businesses, teaches students about nutrition, healthy cooking, and gardening, among other real-life applications. With the pizza project, Washam’s first graders worked in the garden and harvested a crop of tomatoes, bell peppers, oregano, spinach, and basil, then took the ingredients to a local pizza business where they made and ate whole-wheat vegetable pizzas.
- Ending Davidson’s Digital Divide - Based on the thoughts of a student in the community, into a major community-wide project and the establishing of a nonprofit organization, E3D (Ending Davidson’s Digital Divide). The topic of that conversation: kids not having computers. The result: community engagement and some serious fundraising, all geared toward buying computers for schoolchildren whose families can’t afford them.

Chalk Talk: Use Exam Time Wisely
Use your allotted time prudently. Find out beforehand what format your test will use—your teacher is usually willing to answer that. If not, as soon as you get the test, read through it to see where potential time-traps might be, and plan accordingly. Save questions about topics with which you may struggle for last, ensuring that you have time to answer the ones you do know. Don’t spend 45 minutes of an hour-long exam on the essay portion, even if that essay is worth 50% of the grade; thirty minutes, or half the allotted time since it is worth half of the test’s grade, may be more appropriate instead. Don’t use a calculator on a math multiple-choice question if you can reason out the correct answer more quickly in your head. Don’t be afraid to stop working on a question if it is taking too long, you can continue on and return to it if there is time left after answering all the questions.
