Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Medina District Curriculum
The nature of science and engineering are topics of discussion in the Medina middle school science curriculum. Learners explore various scientific laws and principles that govern scientific exploration. Students also develop an understanding that science is not a static subject, but one that continues to change and evolve as new discoveries are made and old understandings are revised. Examples of how science and engineering have improved people’s lives are presented, with students also noting how engineering disasters have led to advancements in safety and design.
Elementary arts students gain an appreciation for the foundational skills required to be artists. In the visual arts, learners explore basic elements such as lines, shapes, and colors. Children learn how to combine these elements into a visual arts piece that demonstrates appropriate use of texture and space as well. Elementary learners also explore the performing arts. Additionally, students get exposure to instrumental music, and learn how to play with appropriate pitch and expressive intent.

Chalk Talk: Pros and Cons of School Uniforms
There has been much debate over the years about whether or not school uniforms have a positive or negative impact on the school environment. Supporters of uniforms note that by having children dress similarly, there is a reduced incidence of socioeconomic distinction and bullying because of the way some students dress. Additionally, some studies show that schools in which students wear uniforms experience fewer discipline issues than in comparable schools. On the other hand, opponents of school uniforms argue that they take away students’ self-expression. Being forced to wear a particular type or style of clothes, they argue, serves to diminish a child’s ability to form his or her own distinct personality.
