Join us for an Informational Session about the Common Core State Standards--2-26-2014 @ 6:30 @ SHS

This session will focus on how we are strengthening education in every classroom to prepare all students for success after K-12 schooling. We will start by talking about what the Common Core Standards are, and then discuss how the Department of Education, districts, schools and teachers are working together to implement great instruction. We will spend some time getting familiar with what will and won’t change in classrooms, and finish with an opportunity to discuss any questions you have about the Common Core.

Raymond C. LaPerche Elementary School is one of four elementary schools in the Smithfield Public School system. Our school is dedicated to Raymond C. LaPerche, a former teacher, principal and superintendent in the Smithfield Public Schools for 41 years. LaPerche first opened its doors in 1968 and presently serves students in kindergarten to grade five.
