Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rockingham District Curriculum
The schools of Rockingham have developed curricula for physical education, social studies, science, and the arts that cooperate and complement the Common Core Standards. For example, first-graders are encouraged to explore science in hands-on projects that help them to discover the characteristics of liquids and solids and the life cycles of animals. They practice math and literacy skills by performing experiments, calculating results and processing data, and reading and responding to literature on the topics.
The middle schools Unified Art program offers classes in art, band, family and consumer science, general music and chorus, health, and physical education. The focus on enrichment carries over into the high school curricula which introduces world languages, such as Latin, French, Spanish, and specialized courses that explore the roots of English words or Greek mythology.

Chalk Talk: Application Tips
During the last couple years of high school, students may fill out dozens of applications. Colleges, scholarships, job applications… there could be a stack of papers just waiting their turn. Besides what words they use to represent themselves and their credentials, may students do not realize that the actual appearance of a completed application can send a message. If the paper is soiled, wrinkled, or contains scratched-out phrases or errors, the person evaluating the application may be tempted to automatically reject it without much of a review. Two tips can help to ensure that you have a nice, neat application worthy of a second glance: first, make a copy of the document and fill out the copy. That way, if you make a mistake, you make it on the practice form and not the real deal! Second, especially if you cannot make a copy, lightly fill out the form in pencil and then have an adult review it. You can then use a pen to write in the proofread information and erase the pencil marks. The result will be a more polished, error-free form that shows you go the extra mile to give a good impression.
