Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Joseph District Curriculum
At St. Joseph School District, the Language Arts elementary curriculum coaches students to recognize context clues, develop a sharp vocabulary, and enjoy reading and writing as a process rather than a chore. Group discussion and individually-tailored teacher mediation helps students formulate their own opinions, while laying the foundation for upper grade text analysis. Thesis-based writing, as well as a deeper, more nuanced exploration of text, is a key component of preparing students for college-level writing and reading tasks.
Problem solving and number recognition in early math sets the stage for higher level thinking, applying mathematical models to everyday situations. Monetary skills and number sense is imparted in elementary grades. Geometry, algebra, statistics and calculus broaden the scope of mathematical applications and a number of technological electives encourage an interest in math careers. Data analysis, probability and statistics are taught as predictive tools for students to use.

Keeping Informed: Recent St. Joseph Educational News
- New Musical Equipment Enhances Creativity - A new batch of musical equipment, generously purchased by the district Board of Education, is bringing music to our students with full force. Three new grand pianos will inspire thousands of district students through teachable moments that allow us to reflect, learn, and enjoy the beauty of well-crafted music.
- St. Joseph Students Embrace the Power of 1:1 Technology - District students are expanding Project Connect to more schools than ever. This project seeks to place laptops or iPads in the hands of district students, embracing the power of one student to one device as a learning tool. Students utilize their natural inclination to use fast-paced technology in a way that helps make learning fun—and so students do not switch the learning process off at the end of the school day.
- Digital Learning in the Town that Kick-Started the Pony Express - Harkening back to the days when St. Joseph was a pioneer in long-distance communication, the St. Joseph Digital Express provides an online network for educators to share and collaborate on their professional development initiatives. The project breaks down barriers of distance and schedule conflict, creating a diverse and exciting development environment for our teachers—and ultimately for our students, as well.

SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Muscles: Our Everyday Mechanical Marvels
The muscles in our body are amazing machines. Each muscle fiber holds a contractile potential that has a pulling force, moving our skeletal framework and performing tasks with ease. Each muscle performing a movement is known as a prime mover or agonists. Stabilizing muscles that support the prime mover muscle are known as synergists. Just like in dramatic fiction, muscles that perform the opposite movement to an agonist—for example, the muscle that relaxes while the agonist contracts—are known as antagonists. Tendons connect muscles to bones; one of the easiest-to-find examples of a tendon is our Achilles tendon, located at the back of your heel. It pulls tight when you bend your foot. Your biceps brachii muscle, the muscle you can feel on your upper arm when you bend your arm into a curl, pulls to decrease the angle of your arm bones from 180 degrees. This means the biceps brachii is a flexor muscle. The biceps antagonist, known as the triceps brachii, is located on the opposite side of your arm; it increases the angle of your arm back to 180 degrees, acting as an extensor muscle. Basic actions can truly be lessons in physics, math application, and biomechanics.
