Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westerly District Curriculum
The Arts are also considered to be an essential component of a well-rounded education at WPS. The three arts curricula are dance, visual arts, and theatre. The Rhode Island K-12 Grade Span Expectations in the Arts are used as a basis for these themes. Students should have an enduring knowledge by domain of dance, visual arts, and theatre concepts. As an example, a dance enduring knowledge is that dance can be used as a vehicle to communicate thoughts, emotions, and values. Possessing kinesthetic awareness and movement skills is vital to communicate effectively through dance.
The Physical Education curriculum includes cardiovascular and strength training, sports, and flexibility components. Grades for the courses include a behavioral component - the ability to follow directions and the willingness to participate. Health units include life skills, self-esteem, and first aid and safety. The goals of providing for students wellness and developing an understanding of how their physical and emotional behavior emerge from their decisions is also to the curriculum.

Westerly District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Westerly Public Schools (WPS) realizes that a complete education includes more than mathematics and literacy goals. Therefore, a comprehensive curriculum has been created to offer education in the health, physical education, nutrition, and the arts to complement and support the core subjects. As part of the nutrition education program, WPS uses the Rhode Island Health Education Framework. Students are expected not only to understand the concepts of disease prevention and healthy living, but also to analyze cultural influences on health practices, to demonstrate successful goal-setting to improve health, and to be an advocate for personal and family health.
We currently cover the following Westerly-area school district: Westerly Public Schools.

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: Being Green
Would you like to be more “green”? Students are in a great position to participate in green activities because they use a lot of materials that can be reused or recycled. If there is a community recycling program, simply keeping a box for paper next to your desk can be an easy way to remind yourself to refrain from throwing paper into the trash. Recycle it instead! If you no longer need a worksheet or a handout, check the other side. If it is blank, you can use it as scratch paper to jot down notes. If you are printing a report, check with your teacher if they mind double-sided copies. If there is no community recycling pick-up, you may check at the local libraries. As a fundraiser, many libraries place a large receptacle for paper and other recycler materials outside of the building. You can encourage your family to make a contribution to these receptacles which help fund the purchase of materials or programs for the library. A final creative way to reuse materials is to search online for crafts that use common household items. You just may find a use for the empty paper towel roll or aluminum can that you never would have thought of on your own!
