Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gladstone District Curriculum
Mathematics instruction begins in elementary school with an emphasis on number sense and operations. By the middle grades, students show proficiency with algebraic concepts. As students move higher in the secondary grades, the mathematical concepts studies give students the necessary knowledge and procedural skills to use mathematic reasoning to solve problems in the world around them, and to appreciate math for its practical uses.
Science instruction starts with elementary students learning about a variety of science concepts with a constant link to scientific inquiry, where students develop questions and participate in simple investigations. The scientific inquiry continues through the secondary grades, with a great emphasis on technology and how the two disciplines come together to answer questions in the real world.

Chalk Talk: Awareness of Learning Disabilities
Parents need to be aware of any troubles their children might be having, but not rush to judgment or use labels unnecessarily. Some of the most common learning disabilities are ADHD and dyslexia. Dyslexia can be harder to recognize, however certain questions may help guide understand learning disabilities. For instance, if a child has trouble recognizing words or struggles with reading, writing, spelling, and numbers, these are signs of dyslexia, a specific learning disability. Dyslexia is a neurological condition, which means that there is no cure, but you can get help and learn strategies for how to cope with the difficulties of reading. Dyslexia is genetic, meaning it usually runs in the family. If you are very successful in some subjects in school, but find that you get frustrated when it comes to reading or remembering what you read, you may be showing signs of dyslexia. Just because you experience these difficulties does not guarantee that you have dyslexia. Only a professional can give a diagnosis. If you think you might have dyslexia, let your doctor know right away.
