APP Curricular Information
Math: As a school, grade levels are aligning with the Common Core State Standards. In grades 1-3 we are continuing to use Math in Focus as well. In Grades 4-5 teachers are also using the Glencoe Math curriculum. Our goal is for students to build a solid math foundation so they are successful working and learning at an accelerated pace. Science: National Science Foundation Kits are used for all grades. Social Studies: Teachers are currently developing project based learning opportunities that are aligned with the Washington State Social Studies GLE’s. Writing: Writers’ Workshop is used throughout all classrooms. Students receive daily instruction of strategies and skills to be used, writing in a variety of genres. Coordination among grade levels ensures that strategies and skills taught at one grade level are reinforced and built upon as student’s progress to the next grade.
