Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pleasant View District Curriculum
Literacy is central to all areas of the Core Standards, and is taught with variable strategies throughout the school years. Students begin by mastering the basic mechanics of reading, including phonics, spelling, and sight-recognition, in kindergarten and first grade. By third grade, they are reading texts more fluently, and they are introduced to reading informational texts to support their learning in other subjects. Students read progressively more difficult texts, and are assessed to make sure that they are making appropriate progress.
The emphasis is on informational texts in the upper grades; by high school, seventy percent of the text students encounter is informational, not literary. However, this is mainly text read outside of English language arts classes, which still focus on literary texts: students build their informational reading skills in social studies, financial literacy, career and technical education, science, and fine arts classes, where they encounter a wide variety of texts in various contexts.

Keeping Informed: Recent Pleasant View Educational News
- Tech Training for Teachers - Students from throughout the Weber School District came together for the annual “Brain Blast,” an opportunity for them to be kept up-to-date on the latest educational technology. The district wants to make sure that all teachers are capable of using the technology at their disposal, and that they are able to use it well, not haphazardly. Teachers were also encouraged to integrate students’ and teachers’ own tech devices into their classrooms.
- Author Visit - Students at Weber High School had the opportunity to meet a young adult author and learn about being a writer. The author explained about his process for writing, where he gets his ideas, and other topics. Students were both inspired to read his work, and to think about their own careers as writers.
- School Dance Tradition - The “Rock Around the Clock” 1950s-themed dance is an annual affair at Pleasant View Elementary, and has been for over twenty-five years. Sixth grade students showed up to celebrate in 1950s costumes and danced with each other to period tunes, while parents made sure everyone got a turn to dance and provided refreshments.

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: Technology In and Out of the Classroom
Today’s students will enter the workforce in a time where technology is central to everything we do. Therefore, many schools are integrating technology education not just into specific computer courses, but into academic subject areas as well. Find out how technological skills are being taught in your child’s school, and ask how you can support them. At the same time, make sure your student is comfortable with working with computers outside of school; give them the opportunity to engage with technology and follow their own talents to help them identify new areas that may be of interest.
