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.

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: 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.
