Teacher Requests

We encourage parents NOT to request teachers for their student. If you have a valid concern, you may come to the office and fill out a form. Requests will not be accepted through email. When requesting a teacher for your child, please do not discuss your choice(s) with your child or other parents.  There are many factors to consider when placing your child in a classroom.  Classes need to be balanced. Factors we look at are boy/girl ratio, academic levels, discipline issues, special needs, and teacher insight. You must list two choices for teachers. These choices are considered to be equal. Not a 1st and 2nd choice. Filling out the form by no means guarantees you will receive your choices. Please remember that for the benefit of teachers and students we will not sacrifice academic balance in classrooms. All requests are due on or before May 1, 2018.

7 Habits of Happy Kids

The seventh habit is: Sharpen the Saw / Balance Feels Best

If I Sharpen the saw:

  • I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting sleep
