Parents enjoyed hearing original poems at the Grade 2 Poetry Evening last week.
Thank you for attending my final ES Principal Meeting last week. Next year will bring positive changes to our school. Continued collaboration between the adults (parents and teachers) in our community will be essential.
Of course, our focus now is ending the year on a healthy and positive note. As you can see, we have many activities and events listed under “Important Dates” in Enotes this week. We have a lot going on from now until June 15!
Finally, it was a pleasure to see families at the PTO Spring Fair on Saturday. Our appreciation goes out to PTO who offer so much to our community and school. Thank you!

Elementary Parent Partnership:
2016-2017 Elementary Class Placement Process:
Class Placement is a multi-step process designed to ensure the development of balanced classes created to meet the needs of all students. Class Lists will initially be compiled without the assignment of specific classroom teacher names. Classroom teachers will not be able to place students in specific classrooms. The teachers are able to assist with issues related to separating students into different classes based on past student experiences.
The process is designed to allow professional input of Resource Support, ELL, Classroom, Language, and Specials teachers and Teaching Assistants with a close eye on developing classes balanced in terms of gender, special student learning needs, English language development, nationality, learner traits, and relationships. Requests to place students in the classroom of a specific teacher will not be honored.
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 write a personal email to Mrs. Munnerlyn (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, May 27, 2016, 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.
Parent Technology Connection - Sliding into Summer with Technology
Tuesday, May 24 from 8:45 - 9:45
Please join Simon May and Kris Sheehan in the Learning Center as we explore and discuss strategies for working with your child to manage their summer technology time. In this session we will provide you with a sample family contract you can use as a guide to balance screen time as well as share some tips to help you better understand your child’s online activities. We will also show some fun apps you can use to capture your summer memories. We hope you will join us for our last PTC of the 2015-2016 school year!

Field Day Lunch Bags
To help make our fun day run smoothly, we ask that students either bring a bag lunch from home, or purchase the special bag lunch option from the cafeteria. Information about the cafeteria bag lunch was sent home with your child last week. Please return this form to your child’s teacher by May 27th.
We appreciate your help as other food options will not be available for students on Field Day.
