Educating Our Parents: Understanding the McDonough District Curriculum
Mathematics learning in grades K-5 focuses on foundational skills of computation and measurement, emphasizing problem solving, reasoning, representation, communication and making connections. English Language Arts focuses on foundational reading skills, speaking, listening and use of language, and critical thinking such as analysis and evaluation. Literary texts and writing emphasize informational themes so that students recognize the amount they learn from their reading.
Middle school and high school students extend components of English Language Arts learning, with an emphasis on the understanding and analysis of texts, identifying literary devices and evidence and integrating ideas within interpretations. Writing involves persuasive, narrative and explanatory skills, increasing in complexity through each grade. Writing and literacy skills are also integrated into Science, Social Studies and compound student’s ability to conduct research and evaluate informational sources.

Chalk Talk: Extracurricular Activities
Your child may have many interests or just one. Whatever they are – sports, dance, martial arts, or just playing with friends – every child should have the opportunity to include it in their daily life. During school days, recess and study hall are included to give students a break from the classroom; a needed break from the actual academic expectations placed on them in the classroom. Students also need that break after school. By fitting in time during the day for your child to play, dance, go to soccer practice or a game, or even attend a friends activity, your child gets the time they need to take a break from school work; they can then refocus when needing to. Allowing students to be engaged in something other than school not only gives students to “refresh,” but also learn of what they like (and don’t like) to do or may be good at – that isn’t a subject or area of study - that can be useful as they grow older. Allow your student that break, whether it is right after school or later in the evening, to be the child or teen they are. It can benefit them, as well as you, more than you think.
