Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Warwick District Curriculum
The GSE for Science encompass the three domains of life, earth and space, and physical science. Each domain includes enduring knowledge statements which express the foundational concepts for each domain and the benchmarks that should be accomplished. For example, a student in a life science course will be expected to identify how matter and energy are processed in an ecosystem and the uniqueness of humankind in the solar system.
The GSE for Mathematics are divided into content strands which are further separated by grade level. The four content strands are Number and Operations, Geometry and Measurement, Functions and Algebra, and Data, Statistics, and Probability. Standards for problem-solving, reasoning, and making connections are embedded into the content strands. As an example, the Number and Operations strand includes the expectation that students should be able to perform mental mathematics to subtract or add whole numbers of twenty or below by the third grade.

Keeping Informed: Recent West Warwick Educational News
- Many Pennies - The students of John F. Deering Middle School raised over five thousand dollars for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patients fundraiser. This donation was the highest of all of the participating Rhode Island schools. The entire municipality of West Warwick is to be commended for its generosity. Two other West Warwick schools were also in the top ten of all the fundraising schools. That’s a lot of pennies!
- Energy Efficient Schools - West Warwick schools recently made some upgrades that will increase energy efficiency. The boilers at Maisie Quinn Elementary School and John F. Horgan Elementary School were upgraded from steam to new computer-controlled models that respond to the outside temperature. Instead of number two fuel oil, the school has been able to switch to natural gas which will save the school tens of thousands of dollars per year. The project was funded by a grant.
- Art Showcase - Cotton Shed Gallery at Thundermist Health Center is the proud new home of an art showcase which features the work of West Warwick High School students. The executive director expressed his pleasure at being able to highlight the talent that is possessed by community members.

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: Staying Focused
Though it may be tempting to watch a television show or chat with a friend online as you do your homework assignment, research indicates that humans do their best work when they focus on one thing at a time. Switching your focus from your work to a distraction can cause you to make careless errors or to forget to include an essential element. An additional benefit of focusing on one task at a time is that the task usually takes less time. To motivate yourself to stay focused, use the potential distraction as a reward for completing a project or for working undisturbed for an hour. For example, once you have completed all of your homework assignments for the evening, you can allow yourself an hour of videogame playing as a reward. With this plan, you will be able to produce high quality work and still have time to relax.
