At each meeting, we discuss recent and upcoming school events and activities, and review PTSA budget issues. Join us and share your ideas or thoughts!

Parents’ Guide to Student Success

What is the Parents’ Guide to Student Success? National PTA® partnered with experts on the Common Core State Standards to create grade-by-grade guides that reflect the Common Core State Standards. Individual guides were created for grades K–8 and two were created for grades 9–12 (one for English language arts/literacy and one for mathematics). Eleven guides were created in all.

What is included in the Parents’ Guide? The Guide includes:

  1. Key items that children should be learning in English language arts and mathematics in each grade.
  2. Activities that parents can do at home to support their child’s learning.
  3. Methods (questions and sample topics) for helping parents build stronger relationships with their child’s teacher.
  4. Tips for planning for college and career (high school only).

What languages is the Guide available in? The Guide is available in both English and Spanish.

6th Grade: English | Spanish

7th Grade: English | Spanish

8th Grade: English | Spanish
