Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Weymouth District Curriculum
There is a school-wide rubric that assesses each of the curricular expectations that students need to meet. For example, a student who is advanced in implementing reading strategies can identify a text’s purpose, the author’s purpose for writing the piece, and the genre of the work. A student who needs improvement in written communication writes down ideas in a disorganized fashion, which takes away some topic development from the piece.
Academy Avenue Primary School recognizes how crucial the first grade year is in students transitioning from kindergarten. Several aspects of reading, including fluency, phonemic awareness, writing, and listening, are focused on. In math, teachers use manipulatives and games to introduce concepts. First grade students complete weekly homework packets in these content areas to practice daily skills. In second grade, students work on more projects independently. Third grade involves the teaching of a wealth of new content and laying a solid foundation for future learning and which will prepare them for future learning expectations.

Keeping Informed: Recent Weymouth Educational News

Weymouth residents, businesses, and memorial donations keep the scholarship alive. Since its inception, there has been over $500,000 in scholarships awarded.
- Students Do Chores to Help Others - Chores aren’t so horrible if they help other people! This is a lesson students at Thomas Hamilton Primary School learned when participating in the “Chores for Change” program that involved them donating the money they earned from their chores to the Weymouth Food Pantry. Students tallied up the chores they did, and their parents agreed to how much money their children would earn. In addition to performing conventional chores, one student earned money for learning his lessons at church.
- Students Celebrate Retired Safety Officer - A Weymouth Police Department Safety Officer who decided to retire after 30 years was invited to a reception at Thomas Hamilton Primary School. Little did he know all that the school’s students and staff had in store for him: a student-made quilt that depicted aspects of the school and safety; a video with kind words from school and town officials, fellow police officers, and teachers; pictures and songs from the children; and more. The now-retired police officer become very emotional at times during the ceremony.

Chalk Talk: Classroom Webpages
Many school district websites include individual webpages for each classroom or teacher. When clicking on these webpages, one may find sparse content or all the information parents could want or need. School districts often do not regulate what teachers put on their webpages, but it would be in educators’ best interest to include as much information as they can to provide parents with a full picture of their children’s education. After all, parents are—or should be—the main audience of classroom webpages. We want parents to be involved in their children’s education, but we cannot expect students to detail everything—or even anything—that they do each day in school. Detailed and up-to-date webpages can solve this issue. Teachers can provide lesson plans, copies of documents given to students, links to resources, a copy of the classroom rules, a bell or specials schedule, classroom news or a newsletter, descriptions of homework assignments and class projects.
