Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Plum District Curriculum
Plum Borough School District also focuses on core requirements all through the class grades. In their Math courses they focus not only on the quantity of information learned, but also on the depth of information learned. This allows students to focus and apply what is being learned instead of jumping from topic to topic as test prep classes can tend to do. The focus for their math program includes fulfilling state requirements and passing PSSA and Keystone exams. For later grades, AP and college credit courses are offered for students.
In their Physical Education courses, Plum Borough School District focuses not only on sporting activities but on lifetime physical education skills such as incorporating physical activity into daily activities as well as weight lifting and classes such as yoga and Pilates. In their health program, they talk through physical, mental, and emotional health, teaching students how to live safely, how to cope with tough situations and stress, and how to choose positive behaviors.

Chalk Talk: Why Study Public Speaking?
Many schools in either high school and/or college require students to take speech class. It is often a dreaded topic that most students would likely never take if it wasn’t required. So why is it a valuable requirement? Speech classes teach lessons that no other class can teach in quite the same way. Instead of telling a student “ok, it’s time for you to write a 30 minute speech” without any teaching at all, speech class provides a safe environment for students to learn and practice the art of speaking. This is not only useful for those who have careers in which they will need to run board meetings. This is valuable for anyone who will ever be in an interview or anyone who will need to get the attention of a person or group of people that they may or may not be comfortable with. Speech class equips students with the tools to be ready to communicate effectively in many situations both in large groups and small. For these reasons and many more, speech class is considered beneficial for students.
