Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Covington District Curriculum
Middle school learning is an integration of subjects and the relationship of newly acquired knowledge to everyday life. Teaching toward middle school students focuses on the whole child, meeting the needs of the social, emotional and intellectual development these age groups are experiencing. There are a great variety of extracurricular activities for students to become involved in and character education goals are actively met through team-building, collaboration, and social awareness efforts.

Chalk Talk: The Topic of College
The last years of high school not only involve completing coursework for graduation requirements but also deciding whether your teen is ready for college. Some teens get excited about college, looking at and applying to many, other teens hesitate or already know that college may not be for them at that moment. As a parent, you want the best for your teen. Part of that is realizing your teen’s social, emotional and intellectual development. They may not be prepared for moving away, the college environment or expectations of college coursework. Or may be fine in at a smaller college, not a larger university. By the time the topic of college becomes more frequent, you have probably had multiple discussions with teachers about your teen’s academic and overall growth. Consider these suggestions as well as those from guidance counselors or employers as you and your teen decide on college and which college may be best.
