Using the Common Core standards supported by Durham Public School’s emphasis on students being able to transfer knowledge from what they learn today to what they will be able to do in years to come, we will be working hard to ensure that your student has a strong background in mythology, folktales, and fables from around the world; classic and contemporary fiction and poetry; and literary nonfiction related to historical and select scientific topics
Through it all we will grow as a team and as individuals, and we may even have some fun along the way.
