FROM THE PRINCIPAL - SECTIONING PARENT INPUT FORM
As we look to this spring, much time will be dedicated to continuing the educational journey of this year and bringing the year to proper closure. We have great units of study, projects, and a culminating field day that the students really look forward to. We are also steadily preparing for next year. This preparation begins with deep conversations around classroom placement. During this process, which spans the length of time from April to the end of the year, the educational team will consider many facets in making homerooms for 2019-2020. These include: individual skills in subject matter, social emotional balance and compatibility amongst peers, recommended educational environment based upon what we know of the child in our current setting, and much more.
As an educational team, we value contributions you make to this process, and linked here is the Parent Input Form we invite you to fill out. Teachers will combine your input from past conversations along with information from previous staff to develop a program that meets your child’s needs. These forms will be collected and delivered to the 2018-2019 classroom teacher and may be used by current staff in placement discussions. Thank you for your participation.

The Used Book Fair will be held during the school day on Wednesday and Thursday, April 10 and 11. Please send your kids with quarters (in a Ziploc bag) or dollars to school those days for books to buy and take home. All books are $.50. It’s a fun event for them!
