Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Griffith District Curriculum
The language arts curriculum builds foundational reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. Students read and interpret a wide variety of both classical and contemporary works in several genres. Comprehension of the material given is stressed, as is the ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences. The writing curriculum provides opportunities to increase students’ vocabulary, research abilities, and grammar usage. Students accomplish all of these tasks through discussion and collaboration, as well as demonstrating their understanding through presentations.
Frankfort schools also provide opportunities to learn foreign languages. These courses build conversational, reading, writing, and listening skills through repetition, examination, and reflection on given topics. Knowledge of the foreign culture is also emphasized and students are expected to utilize this information at school and in the community. Study abroad opportunities are available through Indiana University for high schoolers.

Chalk Talk: How to Ask A Teacher For A Letter of Recommendation
As a senior, students may have had the opportunity to form professional relationships with their teachers. When it is time to apply to college, many times at least one letter of recommendation will be required for an application. Students should pick a teacher whose class they did well in. Good grades are number one but it is also important to pick a class that you actually participated in, as these teachers are more likely to know you better. Try to remember that you are probably not the only student a teacher is writing a letter of recommendation for. Writing a glowing letter of recommendation is not an easy task and can take quite some time. Therefore, earlier is better and many educators agree that the best time to ask for one is a few months (at least two or three) before college applications are due. Also, ask for the letter in person. This will cement who you are in the teacher’s mind, since as mentioned before, they may have a lot of students asking for recommendations. Finally, remember that writing these letters is usually part of the job description of a teacher. They want their students to succeed!
