Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Yorkton District Curriculum
The district's Deputy Director and Superintendents of Education work with all of the district’s coaches for digital learning, distributed learning, literacy, math, and English as an Additional Language in the areas of curriculum, assessment, and instruction. The district has developed a 5-Year Professional Development Continuum, which demonstrates how the initiatives being done for students complement and connect to one another.
Beginning in year three of the five-year continuum, the plan is divided into modules, showing the work being done in the areas of Response to Intervention (RTI), curriculum, assessment, instruction, and leadership and collaboration. The curriculum will be renewed using an outcomes-based approach in order to reflect how student progress and feedback is being reported much more specifically, catering to each student as an individual. The Good Spirit School Division, like all districts in the province, use the Saskatchewan Curriculum.

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: Short vs. Long OO Sound
Besides the traditional short and long sounds made by the vowels A, E, I, O, and U, the variant vowel pattern “oo” makes its own short and long sounds. Unfortunately, there is no clear-cut pattern that determines which words with “oo” will have a short vowel sound and which has a long vowel. For example, the words wood and mood both have “ood,” but if you pronounce these words, you will realize that that the “oo” sounds differ in each one. The word wood makes a short vowel sound. Other words that contains a short “oo” are book, foot, and good. In contrast, words such as mood, bloom, scoop, and cool have a long “oo” sound. Additionally, the “u” in certain words makes neither a short or long ‘U’ sound but a short “oo” sound; examples include bush and put. Certain words with “ou”—as in should—make this sound as well.
