Our teachers continue to make changes to their curricula to implement the Common Core Standards. The Standards will provide our students with a rigorous educational program and ensure that they are college and career ready upon their graduation from PCS. While this is a change for students and teachers, it is an exciting change and one that is good for our students.Please visit www.engageny.org to find out more information about the Common Core. There are "Common Core Curriculum and Assessments" and "Parent and Family Resources" links on the top menu. Click here for a presentation that was shared with parents who attended our Common Core Parent Night this fall.If you find yourself with questions, please feel free to contact your student's teacher or me any time. I am excited to work with students, parents, and teachers to provide our students with the best possible educational program.
