Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Seneca District Curriculum
The fundamentals of Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies are focused on during the early years and prepare students for more analytic and independent work in middle school. By high school, students should have a secure handle on each subject and be able to determine the areas they would like to specialize in. To assist students in that decision, there are curricular guidelines for advanced academic programs such as International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement, and a range of career-focused options.
The career clusters offered are Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources; Architecture & Construction; Arts, Audio-Video Technology, & Communications; Business, Management & Administration; Finance; Health Science, Hospitality & Tourism; Human Services; Information Technology; Law, Public Safety, & Security; Manufacturing; Marketing; Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM); and Transportation, Distribution, & Logistics. This course of study combines core classes with career cluster-specific classes.

Chalk Talk: Commonly Confused Words: Contraction or Not
Some students may mix up when to use a contraction and when not to. For example, "your" and "you're" sound the same, so they are often misused. You're is a contraction consisting of you and are: "You are reading the book quickly. YOU'RE reading the book quickly." Your is the possessive form of you: "He is reading YOUR book quickly." The book belongs to YOU. Another example is "whose"--the possessive form of "of whom"--and the contraction "who's" (who is). One final example is "its" and "it's" The former is the possessive form of it: "The robot raised ITS arm" (the arm belongs to the robot). The latter is the contraction formed by the words it and is: "It is going to rain today. IT'S going to rain today."
