Student Placement for Next Year

Submitted by l.degraffenried on Wed, 04/10/2013 - 11:31

Student Placement for Next Year

Each spring, some parents request a specific teacher or special student placement consideration for the following school year.   Although this practice is not encouraged, I recognize the desire many parents have to be involved in this aspect of their child’s education.  Parent input is one of several factors I consider when creating classes – I balance classes academically, behaviorally, and socially making sure all students have an optimal environment.  I take my responsibility of student placement very seriously and will spend a great deal of time this summer on this task.  If you desire to request a specific teacher or special student placement for next year, please come to the office between APRIL 29 – MAY 10 to fill out a request form. We will not send one home with your student(s).  I do not deal with requests on a first-come, first-serve basis; I consider all the requests together.  The form will not be available until April 29 in the front office.

COLOCACIÓN de los alumnos para el PRÓXIMO año

Cada primavera, algunos padres hacen una petición para que sus hijos puedan tener un maestro o un lugar especifico el siguiente año escolar. Aun cuando no animamos a llevar a cabo este  procedimiento, reconozco que de alguna manera esto es una manera en que los padres se envuelven en la educación de sus hijos., Las observaciones de los padres es uno de todos los factores que considero cuando se crean las clases. – Balanceo las clases de manera académica, de conductay la socialidad, para estar segura de que todos  los estudiantes tendrán un ambiente optimo.  Tomo mi responsabilidad al colocar a los estudiantes muy seriamente y tomare bastante tiempo durante este verano para llevar a cabo este trabajo durante el verano.Si usted desea pedir a un maestro especifico o un lugar especial para su estudiante para el próximo año, por favor venga a la oficina entre el 29 de ABRIL y el 10 DE MAYO, para llenar una forma.No mandaremos una con sus hijos a casa y tampoco será en base al que primero escoja; voy a considerar todas las peticiones juntas. La forma no estará disponible sino hasta el 29 de Abril en la oficina principal.

With the checker flag, they were off and running! The kindergarten classes were in a race for the Kindy 500 at Goshen School.  They drove their way through the halls to greet all of the school with their fancy hot rods! Kindergarten students drove around America learning about our wonderful nation, such as the bald eagle, Lady Liberty and a stop to meet Betsy Ross (Mrs. DeGraffenried) and learning about other symbols of the USA!
