Class Lists for Next SY

It is that time of the SY to create class lists for next year. I understand how this was done in year’s past amongst grade level teams. Please continue with that practice. Here are some focal points when creating a balanced class list:

Take into consideration Fountas and Pinnell levels to ensure there is a balance of students that would create an appropriate number of students in each reading group.

Use your MAP data from the Spring assessment to ensure heterogeneous grouping in each classroom.

Be sure to communicate with the Child Study Team (CST) about IEP placements (i.e. – In-class resource).

Balance the number of males and females in each classroom.

Take into consideration students’ learning styles and academic behavior.


Staff is able to leave on Friday, May 31st once all students are dismissed for the day!

Last Week for Lesson Plans will be during the week of June 3rd.

Specials or No Specials?

We will have no specials on Thursday, June 13th due to Field Day. Our last day of specials for the school year will be Friday, June 14th.

Last Call for the Student Council Car Wash which is happening this Friday!
