Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newberg District Curriculum
Students at Newberg schools begin their science education by looking at science in general. They look at the external parts of a plant, or they may look at the water cycle. As they progress through school, students learn about some of the internal parts of plants. This allows them to be prepared if they decide to take classes in the high school greenhouse to earn credits.
When students at Newberg schools enter kindergarten, they learn the basics of mathematics. This includes learning how to recognize and write their numbers, as well as assign numbers to each object in a set. The steps that these students take to be able to complete high school math include addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They also learn how to solve algebraic equations, as well as graphing equations. When they finish high school they will have covered subjects such as trigonometry or calculus before they enter the world as problem-solvers.

Chalk Talk: Questions to Ask Children
It is almost second-nature to ask children after school, “How was school today?” This can lead to a vague answer from the child. To stay up-to-date on what occurs in a child’s life at school parents need to ask more specific questions about specific topics or subject. Asking what happened in math class can lead to a child telling about not understanding a concept taught that day. In stead of asking if a child has completed their homework, a parent can ask what the homework was in English. This type of question opens the doorway to successes or confusion that the child is facing. By asking the right type of question parents can be of greater assistance to their child.
