From the Office:  It is that time of year when we begin to create new class list for the 2016-2017 school year.  Creating these lists is a complex, thoughtful, and collaborative process that involves a variety of components and perspectives. Classroom, guidance, reading, and special education staff assist the principal in developing class lists for the upcoming school year. Your perspective as a parent is part of the placement process as well. The Student Information Form, sent home this week, has been designed to provide an opportunity to share your perspective regarding your child’s academic, social, and emotional strengths and needs. If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please return the Student Information Form to Memorial School by Thursday, April 14th, as the process will get underway shortly thereafter.
