Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ridgewood District Curriculum
To ensure each student achieves his or her maximum potential, curricula are developed based on two widely adopted sets of standards. First, the Common Core State Standards outline what students should learn at each grade level in math and language arts. In seven other subject areas – science, the arts, health and physical education, technology, 21st Century life and careers, world languages and social studies – is driven by the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards.
To prepare students for our increasingly global society, the schools requires proficiency in a foreign language. In elementary school, Spanish is the only foreign language offered and students learn to identify common objects tand basic nouns and verbs. In middle school, students have the option to continue with Spanish or to take Latin or French. Each foreign language class offered at the middle school builds on the foundational skills students acquired in elementary school. Students learn more vocabulary, work with proper grammar and syntax and explore cultural information about the people who speak the language.

Chalk Talk: Back-to-School Prep for the Digital Age
The days of buying notebooks and crayons for your children in preparation for the start of a new school year are long gone. Now, students as young as kindergarten and first grade have technological requirements for their classes. Being prepared early is the best way to get your child into the groove of learning with new tools. A good plan of action is to call your child’s school and speak to his or her teacher about technology your child will use. What computer programs should you buy for your home computer? What apps do you need to download? Should you invest in an iPad or other tablet? Your child’s teacher can give you a good idea of the technology needs your child will have for the coming year. Another great step to take is to familiarize yourself with the technology and software your child will be using. Spend some time together before school starts to get the lay of the land, that way when school begins you both have a good understanding of how things work.
