The staff has approved the grade level configuration for next year. There will be multi-age classrooms which consist of: 1-2, 2-3, 3-4 and 4-5. There will also be two same grade classrooms for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th grades. In addition there will be one same grade 4th grade classroom. The configuration decision was a very exhausting process. I want to thank everyone for your efforts.
The district draft of the Academic Achievement Plan has been sent to the district. I plan to review this tentative plan with the PTSA membership at May's meeting.
Spring is here (I think), and students typically begin to be less focused and more antsy. We plan to offer more positive recognition and reemphasize the expectations and consequences of disruptive behavior.
