Dear Lower School Parents:
Each year, I invite parents to provide input into the class placement process for their children. If you wish to share your thoughts with me, please send me a letter or an email by Thursday, April 20. The timeliness of this information is very important, as we will begin this process the following week. Therefore, letters received after this date will not be considered for the upcoming school year. A few important things to remember:
- Please write your child's full name and grade next year at the top of the letter. *If writing about more than one child, please send a separate letter for each student.
- Share your insights about friendships to foster or separate, your child’s learning dispositions and/or temperament, and the type of environment you feel your child thrives in. (You may want to share feedback on what has made this year particularly successful for your child, or if this has been a challenging year, what you believe may have contributed to this.)
- Requests for specific teachers will not be considered. Several factors are taken into consideration as teachers and the administrative team place students into next year’s classes. Summer moves and other changes impact class assignments.
Thank you, in advance, for respecting and trusting our decisions.
