Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Walterboro District Curriculum
The English Language Arts curriculum has standards in reading literary and informational texts, writing, and communication that progress from elementary to high school. By the time students start high school, they are expected to be able to develop relevant questions that they are interested in studying more about, propose and support explanations for why events occur in a text or what the author's purpose is, and relate the meaning of a text to themselves and the world around them. These reading skills help them unlock meaning in texts they read outside the classroom.
The Math curriculum has a number of overarching objectives including that students can make sense of a problem and work through solving it, perform mathematical reasoning, be able to justify and critique their reasoning, connect mathematical ideas to the real world, use mathematical tools, identify structures and patterns, and communicate mathematical thought. These overarching problem-soling skills are not gained in one year, but instead are a part of the framework that is unfolded for students during their math education.

The scholarship recognizes recipients for “outstanding achievement in technology and career education.” The student also was previously honored as as the Outstanding Health Occupations Student of America (HOSA) Member of Colleton County High School.
- Cottageville Teacher Loves Her Job - Cottageville Elementary chorus teacher Meredith Melvin, 22, has had a lifelong love for music, having started taking piano lessons at age three and also playing the oboe and clarinet. As a first-year teacher, she said the job came about with everything falling into place and doors opening for her. She taught her chorus students, who were required to audition, about different musical instruments and vocal ranges. She regularly sat in on core teachers’ planning sessions in order to tie in what students were learning in their content areas to their chorus class; for example, students sang African American spirituals as a tie-in to their history lesson.

SchoolTutoring Academy 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.

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: Children’s Literature Spotlight: “Thank You, Mr. Falker”
This picture book that is designed for readers in the upper elementary grades is essentially an autobiography of author and illustrator Patricia Polacco’s life when she was a child. Before becoming a well-known children’s author, Polacco was once a girl who could not read and was overlooked by teacher after teacher until she met Mr. Falker, who believed she could learn to read and actually respected her talent as an artist. This book is a must-read for everyone, as it tackles such themes as bullying, respecting the strengths and weaknesses of everyone, the powerfulness of good teachers, learning disabilities, or learning to read. “Thank You, Mr. Falker” is a truly inspirational story that reminds readers to have faith and that it is never too late for one to learn.
