As we come closer to the end of the year, you and your child will be thinking more about who will be her/his teacher next year. Our grade-level teams and support staff put a good deal of effort in drafting balanced class lists. Some of the prime considerations include academic performance as well as social & individual behavior of the students in the grade. Often, students may focus on whether or not a particular friend or group of friends is in her/his class. While that is important, the other considerations I described must take precedence. While we do not take requests for having a particular teacher, we do have a form available in the office that you may use to give any particular considerations about your child that you wish us to keep in mind. Please submit it to Mrs. Liekkio this week. Certainly, these are things that you can discuss with your child’s teacher as well. We do not publish the class lists until just before the start of school as they often alter and must be rebalanced over the summer due to families moving and out of our attendance area.
I hope that you had an opportunity to see all of the wonderful scientific inquiries made by our students displayed at our Science Fair last week. It was a very fun event with various hands-on displays of scientific principles, dozens of intriguing student science projects, and of course the very eggciting Egg Drop. Many egg protection designs were tested Friday evening by being dropped from a cherry picker elevated approximately 3-4 stories high. A special thank you to Mr. Jayakody and the Roark family for coordinating and working this very fun event. – JSimard
