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
- Scholarship for Weymouth Students - Weymouth students who plan to attend college may apply for the 2014 Town of Weymouth Scholarship, which has been providing financial aid since 1991. 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.

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: 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.
