20-21 Class Assignment Input

April 9, 2020

Dear Parents, 

As we look forward to the next school year, I am happy to share with you that we will be able to staff 17 classroom sections (K-5).  We will have three sections of each grade with two full day kindergarten classes.  The number of sections at each grade may be adjusted before the school year begins due to enrollment fluctuations.

At this time, we are beginning the process of developing student class lists for the 2020-2021 school year.  When developing class lists we take many factors into consideration including: student learning styles, classroom environment, behavioral considerations, ability levels and stages of developmental readiness, social relationships, gender distribution and participation in special programs.  Much thought and care go into this seemingly simple task.

We have a very dedicated, talented and caring staff at Pioneer Elementary.  Our goal is to make sure each year is meaningful for every student and to provide them with learning opportunities that truly support their academic growth.  That being said, if you feel your child has a specific need or learning style that we should consider in their classroom for next year, we would like to solicit your input. 

2020-2021 Class Assignment Input Form, this input form gives you an opportunity (if you so choose) to share specific information about the kind of learning environment your child thrives in.  Completing the Class Assignment Input form is not an opportunity to "choose" a specific teacher, but it is your opportunity to share information about how best your child learns.  Please know that completing this form is entirely optional on your part and not a requirement for us to create balanced classrooms and effective learning placements for your child.  

We will begin the process of developing classroom rosters soon.  Please have your input to us by the last day of school, May 22nd.  You will receive communication in early August with information regarding class placement for students in first through fifth grades.  Kindergarten class assignments will not be communicated until August 11th, after the kindergarten orientation days.   Class assignment changes will only be considered after we have the opportunity to evaluate class sizes and the mix of students in each class.  It may take us until after Labor Day to make those determinations.

While we do our best to honor parent input, please remember that we can never guarantee placement in a specific classroom.

Sincerely, Kelli Bainbridge
