Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Winder District Curriculum
The standards, implemented in many school districts across the nation, have been developed by education experts, teachers and parents. They are research-based, giving teachers and leader direction in how students learn. Strategies and instructional tools make teaching and learning rigorous and relevant, applicable through problem-based teaching. Students are provided with the skills, content and knowledge to be college and career ready, using informational technical texts and increasing text complexity in core subjects to do so.
The curriculum allows students to extend critical thinking and problem solving abilities to real-world activities, increasing their interest and awareness of the world around them. Through many of the extracurricular organizations at the school, students are able to combine their education with areas of personal interest – like Future Business Leaders, or Science Olympiad, and develop an additional knowledge base in a collaborative atmosphere with other peers.

Keeping Informed: Recent Winder Educational News
- Innovation in Teaching Award - Congratulations to Gretchen Hilley for being nominated for Governor Deal’s Innovation in Teaching Award. A teacher at Statham Elementary School, Ms. Hilley was recognized for using robotics kits as a teaching tool in the classroom. The kits were awarded to her through a University of Georgia grant. A big thank you to Gretchen Hilley for the innovative ways you think to make learning fun for students!
- Integrated Learning in History and Writing - Third, fourth and fifth graders at Holsenbeck Elementary School showed how informational texts can make learning fun. From informational texts, students created bottle figures of inspirational people, representing different groups they wrote about. By first writing an informational piece about their “person,” students created their figures: third graders made figures representing American heroes; fourth graders focused on people who inspired them; and fifth grader bottle figures represented influential people in American History between 1850 and 1920.
- Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers - Through the Cultural Arts Center, community members and visitors can experience an interactive way to learn about independent films and filmmaking. The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers provides everyone the opportunity to engage in the arts and even become a filmmaker or contribute to filmmaking themselves.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Reading Lists
At the end of every school year, your child probably hands you (or received in an email, newsletter) a list of books to read over the summer. The idea of “reading lists” is to continue the literary skills students focused on during that year as well as prepare them for advanced literary skills and texts in the upcoming grade level. Students may see this list as a disruption to their summer, knowing they’ll be expected to make time to read. Reading the books, and completing any other activities along with the books, can be manageable, even an enjoyable part of the summer. You can make a plan with your child – rainy days = reading days; a few minutes before bed each night; making a game of the chapter or characters such as “Jeopardy” or charades. Just as with learning during the school year, students will be more likely to absorb the material or skills if the activities are engaging. Your child may try to procrastinate in completing the reading lists. There is also no need to rush it.
