Dear Members of the Lexington Community,

In an effort to achieve consistency across the elementary schools, we are providing you with the Lexington Public Schools ElementaryCurriculum Benchmarks for each curriculum area via the link above.These curriculum benchmarks have been prepared by our ElementaryCurriculum Coordinators to inform you of some of the abilities and skills we believe will help your child develop throughout the year. We hope these benchmarks stimulate on-going dialog with you and your child’s teachers.

We encourage your support and assistance throughout the school year so that your child will have a successful and rewarding elementary school experience. As a system, we undergo regular curriculum reviews by discipline for all of our curriculum areas. Any future updates andchanges to this material will be posted as they become available.

If you have curriculum questions or concerns, feel free to contactCarol Pilarski, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Professional Development for LPS or, by phone at 781-861-2580
