Class Re-Organization

Dear Parents/Guardians:
Re: Re-organization of Grade(s) 1-6:

As a result of the changes that have taken place between June and September in our school’s enrolment and in order to comply with the Ministry of Education’s Primary Class Size Compliance requirements, as well as acceptable class sizes in all classrooms, we have needed to make modifications to our classroom organizations.  All changes will take effect on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.

We have reorganized and deleted one classroom. Unfortunately, Ms. Michael who teaches 5/6 has been relocated to another school as of September 25th, 2017.  A letter was sent home today with all students explaining any homeroom class changes for our remaining teachers.

If your child’s classroom placement was changed, another letter was sent home letting you know today.  Also, your child was given the opportunity to visit in their new class this afternoon to meet their new teacher and class.  We will move permanently to our new organization on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.
 
Rest assured that in all of our classrooms, our teachers differentiate the instruction, assessment, and expectations based on each student’s individual strengths, needs and interests.  The new class placements have been carefully organized to support class dynamics and needs. Most students have been moved in groups and are familiar with the other children and teachers. We ask you to support these changes and help your children make the transition as smooth as possible.  
  
Thank you for your ongoing support. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Joseph

Principal
