K-8 Curriculum Expectations Brochures for 2018-19


During the summer, a team of middle school teachers developed a grade 8 curriculum expectations brochure. A team of teachers updated the previously developed grades K-7 brochures. The brochures reflect the essential skills students will learn by the end of the school year based on the district curriculum and grade level benchmarks. The brochures can be found in the below Useful Information and Documents section of this website in a file entitled Curriculum Expectations Brochure.
