August…Classroom Placement and Preparing for the Year
Teachers and Principals work very hard to meet the academic, social, emotional, health, and other needs of every individual child as they determine classroom assignments. Placement of our students is balanced very carefully with every child’s best interest in mind. You will be notified of your child’s classroom teacher assignment in August via a letter from the elementary school.
We are looking forward to working with your children for many years to come!
Mr. James Knowles
