Curriculum & Academics
Elementary Education at RCS
Thank you for visiting our website. This website provides users with an overview of the curriculum in kindergarten through fifth grade. This website reflects the state's standards that teachers are required to teach at each grade level. These standards are a combination of the North Carolina State Standards (English Language Arts and Math) and the NC Essential Standards (Science, Social Studies, etc.). These are the standards that are assessed on the Literacy and Mathematics Assessments in kindergarten through second grade and on the End-of-Grade tests in grades three through five.
Below parents of Kindergarten, First, and Second Grade students can locate information regarding the standards-based reporting system. K-3 parents can also access information on Read to Achieve implementation.
We hope that this information will be helpful to you and that you will use it as a reference throughout the year. If you have questions, talk with your child's teacher or principal.
Our Elementary Schools strive to:
Integrate math and reading throughout the curriculum
Develop character and work ethics
Forge strong relationships with students and parents
Ensure a safe, orderly, and caring school environment
Utilize 21st Century tools and technology
Focus on development of the whole child
We, as a school district, appreciate you as our valued partners in the education of our children.
