Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Creston District Curriculum

Creston specifically has focused on implementing the Characteristics of Effective Instruction as well as student-centered classrooms. The district will examine multiple pieces of evidence and data to ensure that the Iowa Core is successful and leading to student achievement; this includes classroom assessments, standardized assessments, teacher walk-through notes, and professional development surveys. The district publishes quarterly Curriculum Newsletters to provide the latest curriculum news.

With the recent implementation of Common Core Standards and framework design, the focus of teaching has required teachers to cover the major topics in each subject so that students are continually progressing along a logical path of learning. Standards in English Language Arts detail the major skills of reading comprehension including identifying key ideas, understanding the craft and structure of a text, connecting texts to the world and their selves, and being able to seek out increasingly complex texts.

  • Iowa High School Athletic Director Passes On Powerful Message to Creston Parents - Iowa High School Athletic Association’s assistant executive director Todd Tharp reminded parents of Creston High School student-athletes to be spectators of their children’s athletics and to not be so consumed with wins and losses. He also reminded parents that their children have a minuscule chance of playing their sport at a professional level and so there athletics should be viewed as an extension of the classroom, with them being held to the same values and being held accountable.
  • Creston High Helps Raise Funds for First Responders - With a Creston High game falling on September 11th, Creston High’s Student government and football team decided to raise funds for local first responders by selling “9/11 Never Forget” t-shirts. Creston’s opponent sold the shirts as well.

Chalk Talk: Spotlight on Children's Books

The following two children’s books are great to read with young students around Halloween time. “Pumpkin Patch Puppy”, written by Danielle Denega and illustrated by Barry Goldberg, features the popular red dog Clifford. In the book, Clifford is very eager to explore the pumpkin patch when he visits it for this first time. The story isn't Halloween-centric and instead educates students on elements of autumn, such as apples, cider, etc. In “Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet”, written and illustrated by Diane de Groat, Gilbert accidentally brings his sister’s ballerina costume to school on the day of the Halloween parade, but it does not end up being the disaster he thought it would be. The story helps to show children that a trick may not be so terrible after all.
