Planning for Next Year

Once again we are beginning to organize for the upcoming school year. This includes staffing, timetables and new registrations. If you will be leaving our school, please let us know. As well, if you know new families in our area, please encourage them to register as soon as possible. This helps with our planning!

We are also lookng at next year’s class placements for students. As a small school, we have few options, but we do need to make some decisions in regards to class placements depending on our organization. The creation of classes is a complex task that takes into account many factors. When determining placements for next year we consider learning and academic needs, behavioural and social needs, gender balance and class size. Our ultimate goal is to create balanced classrooms that maximize the potential for student learning.

We recognize that, in some cases, you may want to give input as a parent/guardian. In these cases, please submit a written or emailed request directly to me by Friday, May 31st indicating the reasons for your request. The request should identify the optimal conditions for your child’s success but should not indicate a specific teacher request. We will do our best to accommodate your child’s needs but cannot guarantee specific placements.

We appreciate your support and understanding in this matter. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
