Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Washington Terrace District Curriculum
Reading skills are taught beginning in kindergarten, and by third grade, students are using them not just in Language Arts classes, but to read informational texts for their Science and Social Studies classes. Similarly, math skills are taught both with an emphasis on the connections between different mathematical concepts and with an emphasis on what problems those mathematical skills can solve.
This emphasis on integration continues at the junior high and high school level. Math from seventh through tenth grade is taught in integrated courses, where students prepare for and then learn algebra and geometry at the same time to reinforce connections. The Common Core sets a goal that 70% of reading in high school should be informational texts. The Social Studies core guidelines are a subset of the Language Arts guidelines, and focus on how students can use their reading, writing, and analytic skills in dealing with Social Studies topics.

Keeping Informed: Recent Washington Terrace Educational News
- Schools Win Shopping Center Prize - Bonneville High and TH Bell Junior High were both winners in a competition sponsored by a local mall. Students collected receipts and engaged in other activities to celebrate their school and to advertise the mall. The schools will spend some of their prize money on a celebration for students.
- Pop Can Tabs Help Educate - A teacher at T.H. Bell Junior High had students help him collect one million pop can tabs as a part of demonstrating to students what ‘one million’ really means. Students not only assisted with collecting the tabs, but organized and counted them into sets of ten thousand and arranged a display. The collection will be donated to the local Shriner’s hospital.
- Monster Trucks and Math - Students explored measurement and practical applications of mathematics with the help of a monster truck at T.H. Bell Junior High. They explored measurement in different units and with different tools, and went on to do math problems that involved determining gas mileage and averages. The project was the brainchild of a math teacher and the local community member who owns the truck.

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 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: Look for Math Everywhere
Often students think math is an unimportant topic, and that it doesn’t directly relate to their lives. Show them just how wrong they are by pointing out areas where math is used in professional and personal circumstances. Help them understand how businesses set prices for their merchandise, and how they make decisions about their financial health. Introduce them to personal budgeting, or even doing your taxes. Baking, sewing, and other forms of crafting require the ability to manage fractions and measurements, including making alterations while still keeping the structure intact—a clear use of geometry and algebra skills with important results. Once students understand that math matters, they’ll be more enthusiastic to figure out what they’re learning in their classes.
