If you would like to share information or specific needs that may help in the sectioning process, please keep your reasons tied to the factors above. We want our students to feel comfort within the classroom and to have other peers with whom they feel comfortable. While I understand that playgroups and friendships outside of school may seem like critical partnerships to continue within the classroom, the social connection does not always make for a conducive learning environment inside the classroom. Please refrain from:
- Making special requests for friends to be together in the same class. Our teachers make sure that each child has a student in the class that they would be glad to see based on what we see here at school. I cannot honor requests for friends to be together -- even if all families agree.
- Making special requests for a specific teacher. Requests for a specific teacher will be returned to parents. If there is a teacher or student(s) with whom you have had a less than positive experience with in the past, you may share that in your communication as well.
REGISTRATION FOR RETURNING/CURRENT STUDENTS
Our District technology and registration team plans to open up online registration for current families on April 11th. All families will need to confirm return to school for the coming year by completing the online registration which will be sent to families.
Headed to 3rd Grade or Marie Murphy? All soon-to-be third graders and sixth graders need to show proof of residency to be sure that you are still a resident of our district. Similarly, if your family has moved since originally enrolling, please provide our office with updated residency information so that we have a complete, updated file and information on our end. Thanks for your help!
Moving? For our students who will be attending a different district next year, please reach out to our office staff so that we can update our records and make any preparations on our end. Thanks for your help!
