Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pontotoc District Curriculum
Part of the Math curriculum at Pontotoc schools is centered on shapes. Students from this school start learning about shapes in their first classroom. They learn about simple shapes such as squares, triangles and circles through the use of manipulatives. Later, they add finding the perimeter and the capacity of each shape as well as learning about rhombuses and decahedrons. Each student can continue this journey in high school by taking classes in geometry and trigonometry.
Pontotoc Schools start the Social Studies curriculum with areas that the children are familiar: family, and neighborhood. This expands in each grade as they learn about their town and the history behind it. They also learn about their county, state, country and finally, the world. The students learn about the different cultures that inhabited each area and the effect that these different cultures had. By having a foundation in learning about what formed the land they live on, these students are able to make decisions that will have a positive impact on the future.

Chalk Talk: How to Help a College Take Notice
With so many students applying to the same college, it is helpful to have some ideas on how to help these colleges notice someone. First, on the application, make the personal statement personal. Do not use words that would not normally be a part of your vocabulary. Parents can give input on this section, but make sure that the statement has the student’s voice. Next, show where the passion is. Colleges want students that can help the school. If a student has a special talent, like a concert pianist, tell them. This will help the student stand apart from all the other applicants. Last, make contact with the colleges. The student needs to take tours of the campus. Then while there, fill out an information card that shows the visit. This tells admissions that the student is serious about the campus.
