Parent Resources on the Common Core Standards (Updated)

Image of a book

A critical component of a student’s success in school is dependent on what and how they learn at home. The Toolkit for Parents and Families is a collection of materials and resources that will help parents and families understand the New York State education reform initiatives and how the changes will help your child graduate from high school ready for college and careers. We encourage parents and families to use these tools in conjunction with resources and information you receive from your child’s school and teachers. We will continue to build upon this toolkit as we receive feedback from educators and families.

Gum Art

The 4th grade art class looked at gum creations by gum artist Jamie Marraccini. Inspired by his work we created our own "GUM ART" but we kept the gum in our mouths for inspiration and used colored modeling clay instead!! Students practiced bubble blowing while showing their gum "inspired" creations!
