Westerly District and Curriculum
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.
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.

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!
