Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harahan City District Curriculum
In Mathematics, students focus on learning basic skills including computation such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, algebra, geometry, proportional reasoning, and statistics. The goal is build a strong mastery of core math skills so that students can apply what they have learned to higher math and in real life situations. In Science, students are taught the process of investigating and testing hypotheses and learn how to observe and document natural phenomenon.
In English and Language Arts, students learn to read, write, speak and listen. Reading material is balanced between informational text and literature so that students are prepared for the type of reading they may encounter on the job. English literacy requirements and standards are applied across school subjects so that the focus on using correct English is reinforced. The development of strong vocabulary skills and the ability to use language appropriately in written work is also emphasized.

Chalk Talk: Resources for Budding Astronomers
A cool way to learn about insects like butterflies and moths is to visit the Butterlies and Moths of America website otherwise known as BAMONA. The site is part of the BAMONA project that was created to provide a resource that collects, stores and provides images and information on butterfly and moth (Lepidoptera) species in the United States. Visitors can view photos of butterflies and moths that can be used to identify species in their own backyards. Information is provided by professional lepidopterists and as they are referred to on the site Citizen Scientists otherwise known as interested amateurs. On the site kids can check out recent sightings of butterflies and moths and find out how they can add their own sightings to the database. Students can learn about Lepidoptera species that are native to their own area, read about their habitat, their life history and when they are likely to take flight. The website is recommended by the American Library Association for kids in elementary and middle school.
