    For intermediate grades (3rd-5th), Rising Star departmentalizes instruction.  Each student is assigned a homeroom teacher, whom they will see daily.  Students then rotate for instruction for subject areas, like math, literacy, social studies and science.

    What if you have a question about homework, resources or content?  Start with your student's homeroom teacher, and he or she may answer your question directly, or refer you to the appropriate teacher.
