Stow District and Curriculum
Nashoba Regional School District serves students in the towns of Stow, Lancaster, and Bolton. All students attend grades PK-8 in the town they live in until everyone moves on to the high school. Nashoba Regional School District publishes “Curriculum Highlights” for each grade level from K-8 that provide snapshots as to the knowledge and skills students are expected to gain in each content area by the end of the year. All students learn about the same topics and share the same high quality learning expectations so they are all equally well prepared for high school. The high school curriculum is more diversified and offers programs that help students prepare for college or a career path.
We currently cover the following Stow-area school district: Nashoba Regional School District.

Social Studies is broken down into topics such as history, family and community, geography, civics, and economics. The middle school highlights divide social studies expectations into the specific topics students learn about, such as World War II, the Civil Rights Movement, and women’s rights. English language arts is broken down into speaking, listening, and language; reading; writing; and conventions. Students read both literature and non-fiction and also learn to write in a variety of styles from creative to persuasive.
The learning expectations for Math include the standards for math (the steps for problem solving), operations and algebraic thinking, number and operation in base 10, measurement and data. Science includes topics such as Earth and space, life science, physical science, and technology and engineering. The district has also devised and published standards and benchmarks based on the Common Core Standards for all grade levels so that parents and students understand what exactly is expected of their learning experience.

Chalk Talk: Preparing for School
When it becomes the time of year for the school buses to come around, the worries about preparedness also come to light. To help alleviate this fear, there are a few things parents can do. At least one week before school begins, parents should make sure their children go to bed, and wake up, at the time they will when school starts. Next, help them to get into routines which will lead to success. With the children, create a list of tasks that need to be done each day before school, such as eating breakfast, brushing hair and so on. If the child is attending a new school, make an appointment to meet their teacher and the classroom. If they ride the bus, parents should walk with the child to the pick-up point and then walk from the drop off point home. If they are walkers, walk with the child and discuss rules they need to be aware of.
