Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Attleborough District Curriculum
In reading, the Common Core Standards place a greater emphasis on nonfiction texts as well as more rigorous expectations for text complexity for each grade level, reading comprehension, making text-to-text connections, etc. Additionally, beginning in kindergarten, writing various genres of texts is expected. Students should be able to work together, express their ideas effectively, and use various forms of media for communication purposes.
Beginning in 2014-15, the progress of the implementation of and student performance under the new standards will be monitored and evaluated, and any issues will be solved. By 2016, there will be a complete change over to the PARCC assessment. This assessment will prepare all students for college and their careers, be of high quality and be a full measure of Common Core, supports teachers in the classroom, involves technology, and calls for accountability at all levels.

Keeping Informed: Recent North Attleborough Educational News
- Art - Roughly 200 fifth grade students from North Attleborough elementary schools recently graduated from the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program. They attended a joint graduation ceremony at the middle school. At the ceremony, the graduates listened to a speech from the Master of Ceremonies about how he had been alcohol-free for the past 25 years.
- Student Graduates….Again - A student at Attleborough High School recently graduated, but it wasn’t his first time receiving a diploma. He had already earned an associate’s degree at a local community college, with summa cum laude honors. The teenager began taking night classes at the college in his sophomore year, but he recognized that high school wasn’t fulfilling enough for him, so he became a fulltime student at the college, taking courses that covered his high school requirements.
- Middle School Choir Earns Rave Reviews - North Attleborough Middle School’s select choir recently performed at the Spring Choral Pops Concert at the high school theater, receiving a rating of excellent. Additionally, the school’s music department was honored with the Esprit De Corps Award. The choir had previously drawn a ranking of superior at the Music in the Parks Festival a month earlier.

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: Educational Jargon: Closure
Closure refers to the culminating activity in a lesson plan. It is often used to sum up or review what was learned. The closure part of a lesson is often skipped—frequently because teachers run out of time. This is not as much of an issue in self-contained elementary classrooms because it is okay for instructional periods to spill over from time to time. However, secondary classrooms and some elementary classes may be cut off by the bell. It is essential that each lesson end with closure. It may last only five minutes, but it is critical in teachers seeing what their students took from the lesson, identifying misunderstandings on the part of students, and tying everything together. If closure does not happen, the teacher moves onto the next lesson the next day without properly wrapping up the prior one. Subsequently, students may lose information they learned from the day before. Closure can also be used as a way for students to reflect upon their learning; for instance, they may be required to write down the three most important things they gained from the lesson.
