2018-19 Class Placement Process- No Parent Requests Please
Placing students in their classrooms for our next school year is a multi-step process designed to ensure the development of balanced classes which meet the needs of all students.
First of all, Grades PK-5 class lists will initially be compiled by the current grade level teachers without the assignment of specific classroom teacher names. Other teachers, including EAL, Learning Support, Additional Language and Single Subject teachers are also able to provide input about the proposed groupings. The work is undertaken with a close eye on developing classes balanced in terms of gender, special student learning needs, English language development, nationality, and learner traits. We do not create classes based on friendships.
In August, the Principal and Counselors add teacher names to each group, once our new students have been added to the lists.
It is important to note that parent requests to place students in the classroom of a specific teacher or requests for specific friends, will not be honored. However, consideration will be given to requests from parents to not have their child placed in a specific classroom due to past personal experience. (Personal experience would mean that another sibling in the same family was previously in the teacher’s classroom and the experience was not a positive one.)
If your family is in this situation, please contact me via email (email@example.com) by Friday, June 1, 2018, noting the name of the teacher and the name of the child that was in the teacher’s classroom in the past. Please be assured that any communication will be handled in a confidential manner.
*Grade 6 class groups- current Grade 5 students- are compiled by the Middle School Counselor and Admin team.

As we enter Spring, we begin to hear about families who are leaving ASW and won't be here next year. To help us ensure a smooth transition for your family, please email Admissions (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let them know you will not be returning. From there, the ES Counselors and teachers will be able to plan for a positive transition to a new school and home, for your child.
