Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glenwood District Curriculum
Glenwood Community School District’s Curriculum Coordinating Council (CCC) is a group of personnel that is in charge of all matters related to curriculum and student learning. The council is comprised of two primary school teachers, two intermediate-level teachers, two middle school teachers, two high school teachers, two educators outside of the core classroom, four parents or community members, five administrators, the superintendent, the curriculum coordinator, and one school board member.
The teachers and community or parent members must apply for membership on the council. Additionally, each Subject Area Committee (SAC) is responsible for developing a results-based curriculum for its particular content area based on an action plan devised by the CCC. This collaboration ensures that the learning goals are educationally sound, connected to real world applications, and are reasonable at each age level. It also allows educators to explore emerging topics such as robotics or STEM learning.

Keeping Informed: Recent Glenwood Educational News
- Students Learn to Save Lives - Glenwood Community High students participated in a two-hour CPR training session that is a requirement for graduation and is mandated by the state. The students received hands-on instruction from representatives from a local college on how to administer life-saving chest compressions and rescue breathing. Students also had the option of paying a small fee in order to receive a card that showed proof of their certification.
- Glenwood Gives Teachers, Students Access to YouTube - The Glenwood School Board voted to allow teachers and high school students access to videos on YouTube as well as limited access for middle school students for a three-month trail period. This is beneficial because YouTube contains many educational videos that can enhance teaching and learning, and it allows high school students to utilize the resource when they research.
- Agriculture Students Visit Renewable Energy Facility - Glenwood High agriculture students visited the Southwest Iowa Renewable Energy (SIRE) facility, where they saw how grain received and turned into fuel ethanol. While there, they also saw the processes of wet and dried distillers grain, learned how ethanol provides renewable fuel benefits, and found out about the job market and opportunities after graduation.

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: Children’s Literature
Predictable books are beneficial to use with early readers, as they contain predictable, repeated words or phrases that students can learn and recognize . Oftentimes, these repeated phrases are used at the beginning and/or end of each page or section. Kevin Henkes’s Kitten’s First Full Moon includes such predictable phrases as “Poor Kitten!” and “Still, there was the little bowl of milk, just waiting.” The book allows children to see the bright side even when they are having a bad day. Henkes is known for his illustrations, and this book is no different, as it is a Caldecott Medal winner. Many children also like unpredictable books that give them an adventure to follow and imagine. One such classic is Where the Wild Things Are, in which Max gets in trouble with his mother, sets off to an adventure through a dazzling world of Wild Things. After experiencing this strange, new world, Max is happy to find himself safe at home.
