As we prepare for the 2021-2022 school year, we make every effort possible to place students with teachers where a positive student-teacher relationship will be established. If you would like to assist us by making a parent request, you may do so from April 13th through May 15th
As the classes are being developed for next year, the following considerations are taken into account.
All student placements will be made using the following criteria in order to establish balanced classrooms.
Requests will be taken into consideration but are not a guarantee.
1. Teacher recommendations- This year’s teacher knows your child well because he/she has worked with your child and is aware of individual personality traits, learning style and educational needs. Teachers are also aware of the strengths and styles of their colleagues and may feel that a specific teacher would work best with your child.
2. Balanced classrooms- In fairness to all students and to create the optimum learning environment, classes are balanced academically and socially with boys and girls evenly distributed.
3. Parent request- When a parent’s request is based on educational needs, a request for placement can work well for your child. Any request should be based on your child’s educational needs rather than on a child’s desire to be with friends. There is always time for socializing with friends during recess and lunch periods.
We are still in the process of hiring excellent candidates. Their has been some retirements.
Thank you for your understanding and help!
