Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pompton Lakes District Curriculum
Students in the Pompton Lakes School District receive a well-rounded education that is based on both state and national performance standards. The Common Core State Standards provide guidance for the development of curricula in the areas of math and language arts. The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards similarly outline what students should learn and know in the following subjects: world languages, social studies, health and physical education, 21st Century life and careers, visual and performing arts, science and technology.
As part of the visual and performing arts curriculum, students undergo a study of the history of the arts. In elementary school, students learn to identify common themes in artwork, such as those based on family, culture, or historical events. In middle school, students compare modern artwork with that of art from past historical periods, identifying common themes, elements and issues that are conveyed in the work. Once in high school, students engage in an in-depth study of how visual art, music, dance and theater have been influenced by cultures throughout history.

Chalk Talk: Three Phrases to Avoid in Writing
Writing well involves a number of important skills, from understanding grammar to effectively organizing ideas. Something that ensures your writing is as good as it can be is to avoid overused or vague phrases. First, never use the phrase, “the reason why is because.” Not only is it not grammatically correct, it also doesn’t say anything. Just give the reason why and avoid those empty words. Second, avoid using the phrase, “I hope you liked my essay.” This phrase doesn’t say anything useful and makes you appear as though you aren’t confident in your work. End your essay with a final point of emphasis rather than a plea to like your writing. Lastly, don’t use the phrase, “It’s just my opinion.” Again, this phrase doesn’t tell the reader anything. If you’ve written an essay, the reader already knows it’s your opinion. There’s no need to state the obvious!
