NGSS Adoption

Moreland School District is in the process of selecting a science curriculum that is aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). After hearing presentations from a variety of publishers, the science committee, which is comprised of teachers from all grade levels and across all school sites, selected two programs for the elementary and middle school grades to pilot. Both the elementary and middle school science committee teachers chose Discovery Education Science and StemScopes CA NGSS 3D. The committee teachers have been trying out these programs in their classrooms. If parents wish to preview the materials, please view the following links for more information:

Anderson Wants to Hear from our Parents

As part of the District’s Strategic Plan, Moreland is conducting a survey to gather information about what you think and feel about your child’s school.

Our 2019 Survey will take about five minutes to complete and is available online Monday, March 4th - Friday, March 15th. For your convenience, you can complete the survey on a computer, smartphone, or iPad. (The Parent survey is available in both English and Spanish.)

If you have children that attend two different schools, please complete one survey for each school site.

Please remember that the survey is completely confidential. Answers are tabulated by an outside company, and the final survey results will be presented at a future School Board meeting.

As a parent in the Moreland School District, your input and ideas about our school district are important. You can help us do the best possible job of educating our children by taking a few minutes to complete this survey.

Random Acts of Kindness Challenge!

Anderson has signed up for the Great Kindness Challenge! We are encouraging students to participate by showing acts of kindness. We are asking children to complete small challenges such as smiling at 5 people, inviting someone new to play, saying thank you, complimenting someone, helping set the table, reading a book to a younger sibling, or helping a friend. Talk to your child about ways they can spread kindness to others in your family and at school. You can participate by brainstorming random acts of kindness and creating your own kindness challenges at home. We are asking everyone to spread kindness like confetti!
