Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hendersonville District Curriculum
Sumner County School District uses a variety of curricular materials focused on meeting Common Core standards. With engaging activities aimed at increasing rigor and complexity of learning, these schools are able to develop materials and tools for teachers and students to excel in their work. The state of Tennessee requires adoption of the Common Core Standards in Math and English, and has found many innovative ways of sharing high-quality lessons and units with each other.
Sumner County schools aim to prepare graduates, engaging their minds and developing their character to be successful in the world. The school district has created a “1st Impressions” program, which supports teachers, particularly new teachers, and works to retain them in the district and the ever-changing field of education. It provides mentors to new teachers, as resources with high-quality tools to teach students in hands-on activities for long-term learning and mastery of skills.

Keeping Informed: Recent Hendersonville Educational News
- "Kid President" - What can you do to change the world? 4th graders pondered this question after seeing a video of “Kid President” who has become famous recently, from Tennessee. They sent care packages for soldiers, wrote letters to kids in local hospitals, and they read books to younger students. The students found it to be an “awesome” experience, and it showed that we can make a difference.
- Country Music Marathon - Students of all ages from Guild Elementary School participated in this event in Nashville. They enjoyed the experience, which included children from all over the state. Events like this are so important in our children’s education, so that students not only gain academic skills in traditional ways, but through music and the arts, as well. In these times of Common Core rigorous standards, we need to take a look at what we’re providing for our younger generation and make sure we are educating them in all areas of the curriculum.
- Math and Maps - Math teachers from Gallatin High School used zoning maps to teach their students how geometry applies to the real world. Using castles and fire stations, they tied the learning to how we use geometry today and in the past. After the project of creating zoning maps was completed, students reflected on this challenging yet fun activity. They reported it as involving a lot of communication, and they had to work together. This is what happens in the real world: we use math, we communicate with others, and we have to work together in jobs.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: Teaching Socialization Skills
Whether your child is starting a new school, or starting a different grade level, they will have some angst about the new school year. They will be excited about seeing old friends or meeting new ones, but sometimes they need some guidance on how to deal with social issues. If these issues aren’t addressed, it may affect your children’s classwork and homework. Their minds tend to drift from the worksheet or lesson in front of them, to their concerns about a friendship. One sure lesson that you should try to teach is for your children to use direct communication. When you teach your children to go straight to the source of the concern (in a problem-solving and kind way), you will be doing them a huge favor. Anytime bystanders get caught up in these issues, a possibly small problem turns into more drama and gossip. That’s when real trouble starts, groups of friends become divided, and the molehill turns into a mountain. The best way to teach your children how to use direct communication is by being a good example of it.
