Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lumberton District Curriculum
For each grade level and main content area, the Public Schools of Robeson County has posted a curriculum pacing guide for each grading quarter of the school year. Each pacing guide contains the essential questions that drive the instructional units as well as the standards covered for each category. It shows the scope and sequence for learning and key benchmarks that students should meet in terms of skill development, conceptual knowledge, and critical thinking skills. Teachers are able to instruct in these goals in a manner they see fit.
The language arts standards are broken down into reading (i.e.: foundational skills, phonological awareness and phonics, etc.), writing, speaking and listening, language (i.e.: conventions and vocabulary acquisition and use), the craft and structure of informational texts, and the craft and structure of literature. The district utilizes the North Carolina Essential Standards, which incorporate the national Common Core Standards. These standards integrate the learning of reading, writing, and communicating so students grow in each area.

- Robeson Holds Anti-Bullying Teen Summit - About 100 students, teachers, administrators, community members, and Rep. Charles Graham attended an Anti-bullying Teen Summit hosted by Robeson Schools. At the event, which was in a focus group format, taught students anti-bullying strategies so that they can stand up for others being bullied and allowed them to realize that the adults in the schools are always willing to help everyday. The main goal of the Summit, which was made possible due to a grant from Eastpointe, is to eliminate bullying in the school district.
- Author Visits School, Encourages Battle of the Books - Parkton Elementary received a visit from author Barbara O’Connor, who told the students she became a writer as a result of her love for reading—as a child, she read 20 books one summer—and, in doing so, inspired students to be competitive in the district-wide Battle of the Books. In addition to Ms. O’Connor bringing her books to the class, she showed the students items, such as a ruby and a dog pin, that helped them see how ideas for her books came together.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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.

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: Student Feedback
It is important for students to understand how they did on a test or project so they can undertand the grades they received. The teacher comments should describe some things the student did well and what he/she could improve upon. Following is an example of effective feedback, and what a parent or student should ask for, on a fifth grade student who received a cumulative grade of a ‘B’ on a social studies unit. During this unit, each student has completed several projects, researching the country of his or her choice. The purpose of this unit was not only for the students to learn about their countries—as well as others—but also to work on their writing, research, and presentation skills. [Student’s name] has displayed a thorough understanding and interest in the country that they have been working with, but they sometimes finds it difficult to translate thoughts into coherent pieces of writing.
