Reminder from Mr. Fay
Message From Mr. Fay
I’d like to acquaint you with the procedures we will use for determining classroom assignments for the 2017-2018 school year. Our ultimate goal is to place each child in an environment that is comfortable and conducive to the growth of the individual student. Much consideration is given to appropriately match learning styles and personalities of students and teachers. Of equal importance is designing a classroom in which the children will positively influence each other.
A student’s current teacher may list particular needs related to the child’s learning style and the characteristics of the learning environment that would best meet the needs of the child. Their input is valuable and will be taken with great regard. The administrative team will collect needed information prior to making placement decisions. The placement process is highly reflective and focuses on the needs of all children.
Parents are invited to share views regarding their child’s needs, learning styles, and the characteristics of the teacher that would best meet the needs of their child. If a parent wishes to express their views regarding their child’s needs, this should be addressed in writing by writing a letter stating such things as: the most important priority you have for your child in school, strengths your child has, challenges your child may face, or other factors you would like considered (health issues, learning style, special needs, behavior, peer concerns, family history). Please do not write any specific teacher names in your letter.
Parents of students who are going to either Wabash or Heritage Elementary, please also feel free to send in your information. It will also be used to help place your students in a learning environment that would best meet the needs of the child.
Please return your form by Friday, March 17, 2017 in order for your input to be considered for placement. If you have any questions, please call or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr. Damian Fay
