Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Millbury District Curriculum
Millbury’s elementary level learners participate in an English language arts curriculum that helps them acquire effective writing abilities. Students learn how to introduce a topic effectively, including developing an introductory paragraph that summarizes the points the writer will discuss. Making transitions from one idea to the next is another primary point of emphasis. Learners develop the necessary vocabulary to make those transitions in a seamless manner. Developing key ideas and details is a skill students acquire as well.
High school students in Millbury take part in a social studies curriculum that explores the period between World War I and World War II. Learners examine the manner in which World War I ended, and how that conflict propelled the United States into the position of global superpower. The 1920s are explored as well, with students identifying the social and cultural shifts that occurred throughout the Roaring 20s. The Great Depression is also a topic of discussion. Learners identify the causes of the market crash and how the New Deal and other programs under President Roosevelt helped, in part, to extract the country from the depression.

Keeping Informed: Recent Millbury Educational News
- Millbury Names New Superintendent - After conducting a lengthy and thorough search involving dozens of candidates, Millbury Public Schools named 43-year-old Greg Myers their superintendent. He had previously been a principal, assistant principal, English teacher, and athletic director at other districts. Myers is known for being collaborative and easy to work with, favoring a student-centered approach, and having a strong grasp of new initiatives such as Common Core and PARCC. The most important thing for the new superintendent, who hopes to retire at Millbury, is to always do what is in the best interest of the students.
- Millbury Soccer Star Proud to Be a Woolie - A Millbury Memorial High soccer player was recently interviewed by a local newspaper. When asked what it means for her to be a Woolie, the sophomore talked about how she must represent herself in a positive light both on the field and in the classroom. She takes pride in winning with her teammates and giving it her all on the soccer field.
- Millbury Marching Band Busy - Millbury Memorial High’s Marching Band, which had been practicing and rehearsing since mid-August, had a busy fall schedule with many performances.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: Notes and Letters to Parents
Traditional elementary classrooms often send notes and letters home to parents on a daily basis. This is a way for schools and teachers to connect with parents and send them reminders. Some of these materials may be generated by the school, while teachers will also send home personalized letters and notes. Parents will be sent papers asking them to volunteer for field trips, holiday parties, and just in the classroom in general. They will also be reminded when these events take place. They will also have to sign permission slips for students to attend field trips and participate in certain school or classroom events; they may have to give their permission for students to eat food in the classroom. Parents will be sent home cafeteria lunch menus and forms to add funds to their child’s lunch account. They will receive information about open house and parent-teacher conferences. All classroom teachers should have a regularly updated class newsletter that details what students are working on in the different content areas.
