PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

The end of the school will be here before we know it and a lot will be done in the last 2+ months. We have much learning to do yet, along with things like analyzing student growth, creating tentative class lists, budget/supply ordering, and more.


A lot of effort goes into making balanced class lists for the following school year. Teachers look at academic ability, personality, learning styles, special needs, along with boy/girl ratios. It is our goal to create a class that will work and learn well together. When we design class lists, we do so to ensure a well-rounded educational experience for all students at Abrams. We always consider what is best for each child in the way of academic and social success. If you would like to fill out a form, please contact either the office or your child's teacher and the form will be sent home. Please explain your child’s academic needs and what you feel will help them be a great learner. If you have any questions, please contact me.


Thanks for all you do to help us. Please contact the office if you are in need of anything.

Notes from the Office

Shoes: As the weather gets warmer, students like to come in flip flops and sandals. These are not safe shoes for recess. We ask that students do not wear these types of shoes to school. Please have your child wear closed toe shoes so they are safe at recess.


Open Enrollment Window closes on April 30th! This year’s Open Enrollment application period will take place between February 1st and April 30th. The Wisconsin Open Enrollment program allows children to attend public school in a school district other than the one in which they live. Early and late applications will not be accepted. Parents may apply online at https://dpi.wi.gov/oe If you do not have access to a computer, call or stop in at the district office.


If your child is currently attending under Open Enrollment, it is not necessary to complete an application form; your child will remain an active student through 12th grade.
