Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Portsmouth District Curriculum
The Mathematics standards are divided into eleven categories which are referred to domains. The domains are counting and cardinality, operations and algebraic thinking, number and operations in base ten and fractions, measurement and data, geometry, ratios and proportional relationships, the number system, expressions and equations, statistics and probability, and functions.
The English Language Arts standards encompasses a broad set of foundational standards that apply from kindergarten to grade twelve and a set of standards that applies to grades six to twelve only. The basic standards for all grades consist of anchor standards for reading literature and informational text in a range of difficulty levels, writing, speaking, listening, and language. The more advanced standards for higher grades are focused on literacy in history, social studies, science, and other technical subjects. The Common Core Standards define what students should be able to understand and do at the end of each grade in order to be prepared to enter a college or career.

Chalk Talk: An Enjoyable Walk to School
Do you walk to school? This is a great opportunity to socialize. You can spend this quality time chatting with your parents or guardian if their schedule allows them to accompany you on your walk. You can also walk with a friend or two who will follow the same route to school. If you walk alone, you can still make great use of your time and enjoy your walk. Admire any trees, gardens, and architecture that you pass. Think positively about the school day that you will have or rehearse aloud presentations that you will need to give. You can also listen to music if you have a portable device, though you should always remove the headset to cross the road. You can increase the health benefits of your walk by walking a little more briskly for short bursts of time. By applying these suggestions, you can look forward to a fun and beneficial walk to school.
