Principal's Message

Class Placement & Afterschool Safety

​The days are slowly getting longer, and we are observing another turning point in the cycle of nature. As the recent fall of snow disappears, the spring brings hopes for happiness and prosperity, but also honest reflection on how well we ha​ve done and the resolution to continue to evolve. Our staff will continually strive to improve our teaching practice resulting in an increase of student achievement. We believe that our work as a school is a collaboration between staff, students, parents and our community; we will continue to invite you to join our educational journey!
In May and June, teachers and administration will be meeting multiple times to assign students to class lists for next year.  This is not a task taken lightly at Escuela Canyon Meadows.  Professionals who have worked with these children will engage in the discussion to determine the best possible placements.  We will revisit our classroom lists multiple times. We kindly request our families trust and respect the professional judgment of our staff.  Placement considerations will include multiple factors. Each class will consist of a heterogeneous mix of students.  The achievement and ability level, as well as the independent work habits of each student will be reviewed.
 Classrooms will be balanced in terms of numbers of children with special learning needs, social/emotional concerns and English Language Learners (ELL)
 As much as possible, each class will have a balance of gender
 Children’s needs will be considered in terms of their working relationships with peers as well as their individual strengths
 Children’s learning style
 Chemistry of the classroom dynamics 
Please understand that these are important decisions that need to be made by the educators in our school. Through your ongoing conversations with your child’s teacher, Canyon Meadows staff are aware of unique circumstances.  Class placements will reflect our sincere effort to create balanced classrooms where each child is valued, challenged and successful.  Tentative class lists will be created in early June, with the final adjustments being at the close of the school year. 
At this time of year it is a great time to remind your child of your family’s after school protocols.  Teachers are reviewing the following safety procedures with all students: 
• Ensure you are stopping and carefully looking in all directions before entering a street.
• While playing with friends ensure your parents know where you are at all times 
• Avoid traveling through alleyways.
• When going to and from places of play ensure you are either traveling with a friend. If you don’t have a friend to walk with, tell your parents/caregiver what time you will arrive or return.

Canyon Meadows School provides outside supervision from 7:45 to 8:00 a.m. (before school), 10:05-10:25 a.m. (morning recess) and 12:00-12:30 p.m. (lunch recess). Canyon Meadows School dismisses at 2:45 p.m.  We do not provide supervision after school. If you choose to allow your children to play on the school grounds after 2:45 p.m., then we know that you will monitor your child’s safety.  Ongoing communication with the homeroom teacher is essential when changes are made to the daily routine of your child. Thank you for your support in establishing clear routines with your children. Working with us provides a safe and caring learning environment for all students.   
Warm regards,
Bobbie Schmidt, Principal
