Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Thomas Township District Curriculum
History includes the study of the world. In the local schools, the students study events, or time periods, that have led countries to the place they are today. Teachers use a variety of material to help keep the study of history alive for the students. For example, the students may make a video of life in a medieval manor, they may create a song to teach others about the Bill of Rights. These activities help the students to look at life around them with an eye for the history that has brought it to where it is today.
Geometry is a central part of the mathematics curriculum at Thomas Township schools. This subject connects math to the real world and helps students develop their spatial awareness. The students study topics such as coordinates, transformations, measurement formulas and two- and three-dimensional figures. They also learn how to express geometric properties with equations, which calls upon them to have a strong understanding of algebraic relations.

Chalk Talk: Raising Honest Kids
Older children may tell lies for many reasons, however, parents can try to stop this action in gentle ways while helping them to tell the truth. Before anything else, take a deep, calming breath and open up a conversation with the child to find out why they felt they had to lie. If they do not confess to the lie, then gently confront them. The idea is to help them, not embarrass them. When they do confess to truth, parents should try to praise this, not punish for the action behind the lie. Parents should let the child know that if they tell the truth, the parent may be able to help them. For example, if the child lies about their grade, the parent does not know and so cannot help the child bring the grade up. Finally, parents are a child first role-model, so they need to make sure that they can keep from telling lies themselves.
