Emily Carr

May 2015


It's hard to believe there are less than 2 full months left of school. As we approach the end of the school year, we have begun our planning for September 2015.

Class building is a complex process completed by staff with a great deal of care, concern and energy. Factors considered are instructional groupings, learning and teaching styles, maturity and work habits, program continuity, peer relationships, parental input, boy and girl ratios, group dynamics and class size - both regionally and provincially. Using information from all sources, the school staff strives to build classes which are balanced and best suit students' needs. As parents you may have information about your child that might help us with your child's placement. Many parents have already submitted their input to the office; thank you. If you have missed the deadline and have additional information that would have a significant impact on your child's placement, please inform the office no later than Friday, May 15. Unfortunately, we won't be able to use input shared after this date.

Having an accurate tally of students that will be attending Emily Carr in September is also important to our school organization planning. If you know your child will not be attending Emily Carr in September, please inform the office as soon as possible. We are still accepting registrations for JK as well as SK students new to Emily Carr.

As always, thank you for your continued support for your child's educational well-being here at Emily Carr. Please call if you have any questions or concerns regarding this information.
