iReady Diagnostic & iReady myPath
This year, elementary educators across the district will continue to use iReady diagnostic assessments and the iReady myPath personalized learning platform to support K-5 math and Gr. 3-5 reading instruction. iReady assessments are one component of the suite of district data used to analyze individual strengths and areas for growth, inform instructional grouping in our multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS), and monitor student progress.
New Grade 5 Social Studies Curriculum
World Language Updates
Fine Arts--Music Notes
The HPS Fine Arts department, in partnership with the Kids in Action program, will continue to offer after school strings lessons for students in Grades 3 and 4 this year. The classes will consist of beginner group lessons of approximately 10 students each for 45 minutes. The curriculum will build upon the foundational concepts of music and provide exposure to stringed instruments prior to formal in-school strings offerings in Grade 5.
