School Highlights

Each quarter, teachers examine the material they will teach to see what concepts emerge as possible "Big Ideas." Big Ideas are themes that link which language arts and math standards are to be taught. Once a big idea is formulated, the concept is consistently presented throughout the day as a method of getting students to think through "big ideas" and make connections between the content they are learning. This, in turn, reinforces both concepts and skills being taught.
