Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Scappoose District Curriculum
In Language Arts, studetns learn to properly use capitalization and end punctuation marks. They spell grade level words correctly and learn to spell grade appropriate words and include setting and character development in their narratives. By fourth grade, students spell grade level words correctly and learn to include details in their writing that readers enjoy and that give a mental picture of story events. By middle school, students identify story elements, and include topic details described by the five senses in narratives that they write and begin to use imagery.
In high school, students learn to link the beginning and end to their writings and choose descriptive words that cater to a specific audience. Students write with clarity and focus, and learn to change verb tenses within a draft appropriately as their writing becomes more complex. They learn how to write in reflective, informational and persuasive forms, and learn the skills of editing and revising their work before its final presentation.

Chalk Talk: Establishing a Health Sleep Routine for Your Child
One thing children never grow out of is the need for sleep. A great deal of early development centers on routines of naptime and bedtime, and as children get older they need to have established patterns for sleeping, because kids today are busy. Making sure children get enough rest is one of the most important aspects of their cognitive development, and there ability to handle emotional and social aspects of life as well. Of course, as children get older they will push the boundaries and try to stay up as late as possible. On the weekends, they shouldn't stay up horrendously late. An hour more than you normally do is probably ok, but much more than that and you’ll throw your body clock way off. And staying up all night is rarely if ever a good idea if rest is the goal. Even if their schedule is busy, they can get more rest and have more energy and brain power for your day.
