Assigned Teachers and Class lists

During the last two weeks in June, teachers meet and create class lists for the following school year. It is important to understand the process that staff engages in to make these decisions for all children. A great deal of time, thought and discussion occurs throughout this decision making process and consideration of many factors is given in order to create heterogeneous groupings of students. These include balancing the following for each class: learning strengths, learning challenges, overall achievement levels, social/behavioral challenges, work habits, special learning needs, ELL needs, gender, positive social connections, personalities, and input from the previous teacher. Please know that your child’s placement certainly will reflect carefully considered decisions on the part of the staff in order to provide balanced classrooms where each child feels valued, safe, supported, challenged and successful.  For this reason we do not take parent requests for placement of children in a specific class or with a specific teacher.  Staffing changes occur throughout the summer.  

Registration Information

Please visit our How to Register page for all registration details and registration forms.

Our school office opens on Thursday, Aug 27, 2020, 9:00 AM for registration.
