Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lufkin District Curriculum
The students at Lufkin Schools learn many strategies for different purposes. First they learn how to solve dilemmas when they come across words to decode. Next they learn how to ask questions to understand what they read. They also learn to make connections to their own lives, how to make inferences and visualize. When they enter high school they use each of these strategies as they make character analysis, homelessness in the works of “Beowulf,” “Macbeth,” and the works of Chaucer.
In Lufkin Schools, the Social Studies curriculum helps students feel a connection to what they are studying. In the elementary grades students study the people that help to keep the community safe. While they are learning about this the students take field trips to the fire station and to the town hall. They also learn about the history of Texas. Part of this includes field trips to the Rice Family Home to learn about the history of missionary and pioneer groups. They also learn about how exploration and immigration shape cultural changes.

Lufkin District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Lufkin builds success for its students by creating a curriculum that is built upon the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. The TEKS is a comprehensive framework detailing the learning expectations that students will face in each course at each grade level. By having a series of benchmarks which are testable, educators are able to understand the strengths and weaknesses of their students and help each student achieve at a high level in core subjects. In high school, the curriculum is enhanced by electives driven by career areas like culinary arts, technology, or engineering.
We currently cover the following Lufkin-area school district: Lufkin Independent School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Lufkin Educational News
- Book Club - Students that take part in the Book Club select books each month. They then discuss this book at the next meeting. By receiving donations from area business, fundraisers or from individuals the members do not need to purchase the books themselves. Each month different members are assigned different roles to help aid in discussion. Some of these roles include someone to summarize, a passage picker, an artist, and an investigator.
- ClubDiversity - ClubDiversity helps to make others aware, and to help stop, discrimination. Members are taught respect and dignity and the steps to take if they witness bullying. Students model behavior throughout the school and the community. They also take part in activities like fundraising and a walk for Alzheimers and Valentine flower sales.
- FIRST Robotics - FIRST Robotics guide students as they design, build, program and drive a working robot. From the time they receive the assignment to the time of the competition, students are given a specific timeline. FIRST supplies a few parts to begin, then the students bring their own skills to complete and personalize the finished machine. Students then compete against other students from other schools.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
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: Social Development in Elementary School
By the time that students enter fourth grade, they enjoy being social. This is the year when student begin to gossip, tease and criticize others. They begin to assign labels to others, anything from popular to loser. They also begin to label their own social group. They understand best friends, friends and acquaintances; however, these labels can change from minute to minute. Parents need to be involved in their child’s life, especially if their child is the one that is being teased. When a parent becomes involved in the school, they begin to learn the names of the classmates and then it makes it easier to arrange activities away from the school. It also allows name recognitions when having a conversation with the child. If the child is facing a rough time from other students, make sure to include the teacher or guidance counselor when looking for advice.
