​ACADEMICS

P.S. 310 has established a curriculum for its students that strives to help each student reach his/her full learning potential.

 

Curriculum Night

This night is devoted for parents and families to meet their child’s teacher and to gain an overall understanding about the grade curriculum and expectations for the school year. Your child’s teacher will describe in detail the plans and a schedule for the year as well as the procedures for many important routines for the class.  Please be sure to attend this helpful and informative meeting.

 

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conferences are held twice a year (November and March) and provide a great opportunity for you to talk with your child’s teacher about what your child is learning at school and how you can support this learning at home.

 

Questions to Consider Asking Your Child’s Teacher:

 

  • Is my child performing on grade level? How will it be assessed?

  • What is my child expected to learn?

  • What do these assessment results really mean?

  • What does my child do well and what does he or she struggle with? Can you give me examples?

  • If my child needs extra support or wants to learn more about a subject, are there resources to help his or her learning outside the classroom? Can you give me examples?

  • How will you be introducing the Common Core standards to students this year?

  • What do you think my child is particularly good at?

  • In what areas does my child need improvement?

  • How is my child doing socially? How is my child doing emotionally?

  • Does my child participate in class discussions and activities? What would make my child more effective in doing his/her work?

  • What can I do at home to provide extra help?

  • What accommodations are being made for my child?

  • How can I help?

  • How can I contact you?

 

Homework

The purpose of homework is to extend and reinforce learning and to develop a sense of self-discipline, personal responsibility, and independent thinking.  All homework assignments are related to class activities.  Homework might offer the opportunity to develop a student’s creative ability by doing research homework.  All students are given homework assignments in reading and math every night.  In addition, students are given independent reading books to take home every night.  Students are encouraged to read for at least twenty minutes every night.  Parents should supervise and review their children’s assignments nightly. Please discuss any homework questions or concerns with your child’s teacher.
