Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Frenchtown District Curriculum
The elementary Language Arts curriculum is comprised of several standards that reflect good reading fluency and comprehension. Teachers will approach the curriculum by using a teaching model that demonstrates the skills and strategies used by good readers. Some of the topics that will be covered include predicting, visualizing, and connections. Students will be read to on a daily basis from both fiction and non-fiction pieces of literature as well as reading independently throughout the day.
The skills learned in elementary school will be used to delve into more difficult pieces of literature in middle school and high school. Students will begin to not only be tested on their comprehension of a text, but their ability to analyze the text for different underlying components. Some of these will include analyzing themes, foreshadowing, and character motivations. Students will also begin to study different authors and their writing styles as they look at each individual genre of literature.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Community Involvement
There are many important components to a successful educational system and one of them is community involvement. This can take the form of citizen contributions or local business contributions. Local businesses have many resources they can offer to school systems. Students can take field trips that will expose them to different careers and teach them how certain businesses work. The businesses can donate their time for employees to become mentors or tutors to students. They can also lead lessons on a relevant aspect of their business. For example, a grocery store can teach a lesson on food groups and a bank could teach students how to use a checkbook. Another contribution of local businesses is monetary donations. These come in handy at the beginning of the school year when students might need supplies and around the holidays when families may need more help. Community involvement from local businesses is a crucial part of a district’s success.
