Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Swampscott District Curriculum
Since obtaining a grant, Swampscott School District has implemented a STEM Initiative. The district has been able to take advantage of STEM consult teachers, technology for the classrooms, and professional development for the teachers to help make the imitative a success. The first goal of the STEM Initiative is for students and staff to develop 21st century skills through implementing current technology in the classroom, providing STEM-related field trips, and incorporating STEM-based lessons.
Next, the district aims to provide STEM opportunities outside of the school day through after-school and summer clubs and by promoting local STEM programs. The third goal is to create a partnership between the district and community in order to increase students’ exposure to STEM. Fourth, Swampscott aims to provide professional development that assists teachers in effectively integrating STEM into instruction. The final goal is to develop an assessment that evaluates how the STEM Initiative is working.

- Curriculum Director Implements Unique Professional Development Approach - According to Swampscott’s Director of Curriculum and Instruction, the key to effective professional development is for the teachers to “take ownership” of it.

There are 54 total projects, and many of them aim to benefit students in multiple classrooms.
- Elementary Students Write Poems for UNICEF - Students from Stanley School wrote poems for their service project Trick or Treat UNICEF.

They encouraged people to donate in UNICEF’s “little orange boxes.”

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: Parent-Teacher Conferences: Discussing the Students
It is important for teachers to make student work available during conferences. This way, when explaining to parents how their children are doing academically and how they have been growing, it will be easier for them to understand if teachers explicitly show and point out areas on the work that corroborate what they are saying. Teachers may use the work to identify specifically what students are doing well and what they need to improve on. Prior to the conference, it would be a good idea to organize each child’s relevant work samples in individual portfolios. When talking with parents, teachers should discuss each child as a whole. Of course, parents will want to know how their children are performing academically, but it is also important to talk about aspects such as the child’s personality and interests. Many parents want to help their children when they are struggling with their schoolwork but are not sure how to. Teachers may suggest games or activities that are inexpensive and simple and can help with particular skills or content. It would also be beneficial to seek suggestions about specific books for children to read based on their interests and reading levels.
