Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Johnson Lane District Curriculum
The focus in Language Arts is reading, writing, speaking and listening, and the development of research skills. Reading comprehension and analysis is taught through literary works and non-fiction, and students learn to recognize different purposes for writing a text. In writing, they also learn how to write in multiple formats and how to organize their ideas to write a cohesive essay. They are also taught how to edit and revise and the conventions of the English language.
The school district also has a strong STEM program. The STEM program is science, technology, engineering and mathematics through an integrated approach. Classroom learning draws upon and combines all these areas so that students see how they interrelate and recognize the relevance in all their courses. The opportunities tend to be project-based, giving students hands on learning experiences. The goal of the curriculum is to prepare students for life and careers.

Chalk Talk: Importance of Teacher/Parent Communication
Communication between teachers and parents is an important issue of education. During the school year, students spend more time with their teachers than they do with their parents. It is so very important for teachers to be good communicators, both orally and in writing. If a teacher sees a problem with a student, the parent needs to be advised of the situation. By the same token, parents need to feel comfortable communicating problems with the child at home to the teacher. Communication can never be effective unless it is two-way, as this is the only way to for everyone to be on the same page. Parents need to be assured that teachers are not there to judge them, but that they are there to help. Our students are the future of our country and their academic success or failure affects everyone. Teachers, work to develop good relationships with your students and their parents. Home life has a lot to do with what happens at school. The reverse is also true, as what happens in school impacts a student’s home life.
