Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lone Tree District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum is comprehensive in its oversight of literacy, communication, critical thinking and learning goals. Students are taught how to read different types of texts and how to use different analytic skills in understanding the goals of fiction and non-fiction. Students write various types of texts, including expository pieces, literary analyses, persuasion, and creative writing. Language development, grammar and vocabulary and a part of the curriculum at all grade levels, and students are expected to develop a full grasp of formal English.
In mathematics, each grade level has focus areas that instruction is based off of; for example, a focus area in second grade is the use of units of measure. The program that is utilized creates high expectations for both the quality and quantity of material students are exposed to, and provides the appropriate materials for both teachers and students to make it possible to meet these expectations. Hands-on learning and modeling of concepts are also essential in math.

Chalk Talk: School Nutrition Issues
With all that teachers have on their figurative plates, schools often do not want to be responsible for these types of concerns. They may require teachers to send out permission slips each time food will be brought to class, naming what the snack(s) will be; those who do not obtain permission or who do not turn in their slips will not be able to eat the snack. Students will not be allowed to eat anything brought in for birthdays if permission slips weren’t sent out beforehand but will likely be able to take the goodies home. Some schools may choose a less complicated process: Anytime food is brought in, the student takes it home, where his/her parents decide if it is okay for the child to eat. It may not seem fair, but it can lessen the liability schools have considerably.
