Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Steamboat Springs District Curriculum
The Colorado Academic Standards describes the goals for learning in each subject, the critical thinking processes students should develop, and the ways in which each subject is applicable in real world experience. The science curriculum introduces students to content knowledge in the areas of biology, earth and environmental science, chemistry and physics. Students also learn how to design experiments, formulate and test hypotheses, and how to document their scientific observations.
In Language Arts, students are given the opportunity to read and respond to a variety of texts such as prose, poetry, drama, informational and letters. They are taught to communicate in writing with various audiences in mind and learn how to synthesize the ideas of others into their own work. Research skills are emphasized so that students learn how to locate quality information, evaluate content, and properly cite others works. These skills are all tied into College and Career Readiness Standards as well.

Chalk Talk: Snacks in the Classroom
Many people likely remember eating quite a few treats in their elementary classrooms; their classmates often brought cookies or cupcakes in for their birthdays, and parents and teachers brought in various goodies for holiday parties. However, due to concerns over healthy eating and allergies, policies on food and snacks in the classroom are changing. Childhood obesity is a major nationwide epidemic, and many schools now require that all snacks, including those brought in for birthdays and parties, be “healthy.” There is also the issue of children needing to avoid eating certain foods for reasons such as medical issues; religious beliefs; and the following of gluten-free, vegetarian, or other special diets. Children may have a myriad of food allergies, and young students cannot necessarily be relied upon to avoid eating foods that pose a danger to them. Therefore, teachers must collect allergy information from parents at the beginning of the year and be very careful that children do not eat something that is unsafe for them to consume.
