Starting in their primary years, students are expected to meet the standards of the Core Curriculum. Children are entered into the primary program at age five and stay there until they are ready to enter grade four, during which time fundamental reading, comprehension, problem-solving and inquiry skills are instilled. These are expanded on in the later years when students read and analyze texts, problem-solve across areas of math, and conduct experiments and formulate sound hypotheses

Chalk Talk: Making Choices
When you have to make a choice between options it can be difficult. For instance, you may have to choose between colleges to attend. Or you may have to choose between courses to take or even between boys or girls to date. Discussing it with your parents and friends is a good way to proceed but they cannot decide for you. There are some simple tools to use to help you make choices. One is to take a sheet of paper and write all the pros of one choice and all the cons. Often it is surprising how this simple task can help you find the choice you should make. Every day we have choices to make. Good luck with yours!
