Back to School
2019-2020 School Year
Student & Parent Edition
Mrs. Erin Fonzo
PENNCREST District Calendar
A great deal of time, effort and thought has gone into the process of student placement for the 2019-2020 school year. Careful consideration was given to input from staff and families as well as student learning styles. Classrooms have been balanced academically and socially. Our class lists are structured to provide equitable class sizes at each grade level. Moving students is difficult without causing imbalances and inequities.Thank you so much for being positive with your child and helping him or her understand that it is impossible to place all students with a preferred best friend or teacher. ALL of our staff works hard to make school a positive experience for ALL students. Maplewood is eagerly looking forward to enriching your child’s life. Thank you for understanding that it can take a few weeks for a child to acclimate to a new school, grade, peer group and teacher.
Homeroom placements will be mailed home the week of August 12, 2019. If you have not received your child's welcome back packet in the mail by Monday, August 19, 2019, please call the school for this information at (814)337-1659.
