Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Farmington District Curriculum
The goal of the DESK standards, and the Utah Core, is to help students build bridges between the material they learn, their next educational goals, and real-world problems that they will face. For instance, in Mathematics the teaching of algebra, geometry, statistics, and arithmetic are not kept separate. They are also asked to solve word problems and use visual and physical demonstrations to explain mathematical principles, to make sure that they are able to apply these techniques to actual situations.
Similarly, in English Language Arts, students are encouraged to read widely, and to master both literary and informational texts. As the texts they read increase in complexity, they are asked to do more and more complicated writing and analytic tasks, to ensure that they will be able to understand the texts they work with in their post-high-school careers. Students are also asked to apply their literacy and writing skills outside of Language Arts classes, including in Social Studies and Science.

Keeping Informed: Recent Farmington Educational News
- Mock Olympic Games - Sixth graders at Knowlton Elementary capped off a unit on ancient cultures with a mock Olympic games designed to replicate the ancient competitions. They represented ancient Greek city-states, and competed in track-and-field events. The students connected the games to their knowledge about political divisions in ancient Greece and the social customs around the Games, which they learned about in their classes.
- Davis County Read-A-Thon - Community members were encouraged to join students in a Read-a-Thon in March. Students will be conducting activities to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday, and community members who wish to support them can submit the number of pages they have read to be a part of the community’s grand total. This is the second annual Read-a-Thon that the community has embraced.
- Shoe Service Project - Students joined in with a local credit union to give shoes to the less fortunate in their community. The credit union supplied the shoes, and the student council got together to handle the wrapping. The school district then identified students in need, and handled the donation. Students also got to contribute financially, which was a way to raise awareness in them of the needs of others.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: Experiential Learning Matters
Students need to have concrete experiences to tie them to the material they are learning in class. Many of these can be done in the classroom, such as science experiments to demonstrate principles they have learned. However, families can also provide opportunities for children to get these concrete experiences. Take your child to a museum that has an exhibit on a subject they are studying in history or science class. Visit the setting of a favorite book when you are travelling near there, or make a point of reading books set near your home to learn more about it. Ask a child learning fractions to help with measuring for baking, or an algebra student to help you convert a recipe to serve more or fewer people. This will help your child’s learning process, and will be enjoyable for all!
