“Great schools are measured not by the accomplishments of their students, but by the lives led by their alumni.”

By Michael Chun

Math Curriculum Is Now Available Online

Parents can now view our math curriculum online. Follow this link to view the curriculum. The link is accessible via the District website, Teaching and Learning, Online Curriculum Guide (right side of screen), and then enter "mathematics" into the department. From there, click on the grade level that you want to view. All parents should be aware of the unit of math their child is currently on. If a parent is not sure they are encouraged to ask their child's teacher. If you have any questions about the online math curriculum or need assistance navigating the site, please feel free to ask me (Don Mrozik).
