The Superstar Special

Newsletter for the C.L. Smith Elementary Superstars

April 2016

From the Principal:

Greetings Superstars!

At this time of year parents often begin to wonder what the coming school year may hold with regard to student placement. Student assignments are of great importance to all of us. The staff at C.L. Smith gives much consideration to the complicated and difficult process of organizing classes effectively for all students. We use the following criteria to develop our classes:

  • Student’s academic ability
  • Behavioral considerations
  • Student/Student compatibility
  • Gender balance
  • Teacher’s educational style
  • Individual student needs

All decisions are made to benefit the largest number of students. We must balance by

academic ability, gender, and students with special needs. Combination classes happen

only when student population demands that we do it. There are special considerations to forming those classes as well. In addition, teacher assignments change almost every year, and many times we don’t know of changes until the last minute.

Because of the complicated nature of this process, I do not encourage parents to

request a specific teacher. Special requests limit our options in organizing classes on the

above criteria. You do, however, have the right to make a request. To be considered, your request must be in writing and contain a valid educational justification. Requests must be submitted by May 1, 2016. We do not guarantee your request will be granted, however, it will be looked at after all other considerations have been satisfied.

Your child’s academic assignment is very important to us. We will assign your child to a

teacher and a class in which we feel he/she will be successful. We appreciate very much

your confidence in us to make these academic decisions. If you have any questions,

please do not hesitate to ask.

Take care,

Joyce Hansen


Bits and Pieces

School-Wide Friday Fun Volunteers Needed

Our Schoolwide Friday Fun event is in need of volunteers to help teachers and staff run special student activities. We have crafts and sports events that simply need someone to come and help out from 1:45-2:45 on a Friday afternoon. Please contact the office if you are interested in helping out with the activity!

After school Club Volunteers Needed

Do you have a special talent/interest/hobby that you would like to share with kids? We are actively seeking for interested individuals to host after school clubs one afternoon a week for about 6 weeks. If would like to submit a proposal for an after school club please make an appointment with Mrs. Hansen!
