Letter to Parents/Guardians of Incoming First through Fifth Graders

Dear Parents and Guardians,
As we continue to create balanced classes for the 2017-18 school year, we ask you all for the trust and flexibility necessary to meet the needs of all our students. Our grade-level teams spend an extensive amount of time, from April to August, to assess the strengths and needs of each child and create optimal, balanced classes.
We believe that it will be very helpful for your child’s teacher next year to learn more about him or her in advance. For this reason, we have created a brief questionnaire for you to share the what you would like the teacher to know, of which she or he may otherwise not be aware.
Please return your responses to the questions below to Janet Breen in the main office by Friday, May 26. If you prefer email, please contact:
Thank you for your participation and support of our students’ success in 2017-18!
Sincerely yours,

Dorinne Dorfman, Ed. D., Principal
