Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Stillwater District Curriculum
In Mathematics, the students learn how to classify geometric objects, both regular and irregular, such as triangles and quadrilaterals. They are also expected to master concepts in angle relationships made by parallel lines, such as by identifying and analyzing those in which are cut by a transversal. Learning about rotation, translation, magnification, and reflection is also used to identify geometric transformations on a coordinate plane.
In Language Arts, the students learn material such as the acquisition of new vocabulary. Vocabulary words are learned in a variety of ways, such as in context, and using the knowledge they have of Greek and Latin root words. The learners also use the knowledge they have acquired of prefixes and suffixes to figure out the meanings of new vocabulary. The students are taught how to figure out the meanings of words while reading by imparting their knowledge of the roots, the word parts, the picture cues, and through the use of their real-world connections.

Keeping Informed: Recent Stillwater Educational News
- Changing Start Times - Since research has shown that high school students perform better mentally when they stay up later and sleep later in the mornings, two school districts in Minnesota changed their start times by moving them back one hour. Research also shows that 20% of all high school students fall asleep in class within the first two hours of school. After a large committee comprised of parents, teachers, administrators, and community members looked at the research, they eventually came up with a new schedule that may be implemented in the 2013-2014 school year.

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: The Role of the Elementary Science Teacher
The elementary science teacher prepares the students of the upper level coursework in the mathematics and sciences. While doing so, the elementary science teacher helps the students learn how to have an open mind and to use it for discovering new things. Sciences that are taught include physical science, earth science, and life science. The students in the science classroom learn the material from textbooks, but also from reading non-fiction texts and articles. They learn from the teacher the steps of the scientific method, and use this method in the variety of hands-on labs and studies they perform. Being an elementary science teacher can be a lot of fun, yet also challenging!
