Common Core State Standards

Welcome to a new area of our site designed to provide parents with more information about the Common Core State Standards and our school curriculum.



The following is a Power Point file of a presentation made by Mr. Vroegh to our community about CCSS and the new Smarter Balanced Assessments and 2 videos that were part of the presentation.


Resources that will help families learn more about the CCSS and the Smarter Balanced Assessments.

Feel Free to try the Smarter Balanced Assessment at home.


At WWW.GREATSCHOOLS.ORG/GK/MILESTONES you can find free online collection of videos aimed at helping parents understand grade-level expectations in grades K-5. Milestones show students demonstrating what success looks like in reading, writing and math, grade by grade.
