Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Portsmouth District Curriculum
Each year students are expected to master a range of skills that will enable their progression within the subject. For instance, in English, the teaching of writing is encompassed over the years from teaching a student to write their first words to teaching a student to write a research paper. Each subject offers students the chance for in-depth mastery of the content and opportunities for advanced studies in areas of particular interest.
In writing, students should be able to generate ideas, create an outline, research the topic, and write with correct grammar and in different forms. Compositions should be well researched, grammatically correct, and demonstrate use of advanced vocabulary. Upper level students are expected to take a journalistic approach in which topics such as editing, interviewing, and style are used to reinforce literary concepts while learning how texts are created and function.

Chalk Talk: Basics for Developing Academic Achievement
A child needs around 8-10 hours of sleep a night, depending on their age. Too little sleep or poor sleep can interfere with academic achievement whereas good sleep can help increase focus, concentration, and positive moods. If your child is tired throughout the day or struggles in classes, make sure they are getting a good night's rest. If they snore loudly, have large tonsils, or have trouble falling or staying asleep, you may want to speak with a healthcare professional about whether there is an underlying cause and treatment that could help.
