Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fenton District Curriculum
The math curriculum at Fenton Area Public Schools introduces students to a variety of problem-solving techniques. In the early grades, students use visualization and manipulation to learn how to place objects in sets and then how to add, subtract, multiply and divide. As they advance through school they learn how to use these skills to complete algebraic formulas and begin the study of statistics. To round out their education in problem-solving, students then are able to complete classes in geometry, trigonometry, and calculus.
Fenton Area Public Schools includes the Social Studies curriculum into each student’s life from their first year at school. Part of this curriculum includes the study of Geography. After this they discover information about other states in the United States, plus countries that border the U.S. Soon, they find out about other countries, including their topography and the influence that it had in settlements and trade. By becoming familiar with all this students become aware of the world around them and the variety of cultures surrounding them.

Chalk Talk: Parent-Teacher Conferences
When preparing to attend a parent-teacher conference, it helps if the parents know what to expect. The most important point to come away with is how the child is doing in the class and to find if there are specific areas that need attention. When scheduling the conference make sure that it is not squeezed in so that there is plenty of time to address issues. Also, unless the teacher requests it, the child and any siblings should not be brought to the meeting. Before going the parent needs to be aware of the child’s grades and be familiar with the curriculum. Begin with any positives that the child has about the class or the teacher. This opens the doorway to a friendly conversation that puts everyone at ease. Then make sure that any questions are asked and answered.
