Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grants Pass District Curriculum
Grants Pass Schools believe that science is all around and to prove this they offer their students a variety of experiences. Some of the classes use the internet to re-enforce what they have learned in class. This is in addition to field trips that are taken to a local lake to study decomposition, plants, lake formation and migration. These students are also shown how to find the needs of living things by growing radish seeds and how to conduct observations and communicate findings about plant growth.
Social Studies covers many time periods and places in the world for students to learn about. When studying the Middle Ages, some of the students may be able to participate in a medieval feast. Other students discover the water issues that are faced by some continents, such as Africa, or while studying ship building they may make their own paper boat and sail it through an obstacle course. By including as many physical experiences as possible, students have the opportunity to see how actions can affect the world.

Chalk Talk: Tips When Faced With a New School
Whether due to redistricting or due to a family move, a new school can be a scary place for any child. To help with this transition, here are some ideas. First of all is to keep the lines of communication open. Talk to the child about the fears they face as they are entering this new world and give them support to help them feel like this is not unusual. Next is to volunteer in the school. As the child sees your familiar face, they will begin to feel more comfortable in their surrounding. Last of all, find out if there are any email lists that the teacher uses to keep parents up to date and then sign up for them. By following these steps, the change in schools may be easier for the parent and the child.
