Principal’s Message

Posted April 16th, 2014 by Mrs. Peacock

The year certainly has gone quickly. We have already begun our planning for the 2014-15 school year.  Please spread the word that kindergarten registration has started and the Kindergarten Round-Up night will be held on April 24th at 6:00 pm.  If you know anyone that has not already enrolled for kindergarten, encourage them to enroll as soon as they can so we can ensure that we are properly staffed.

This time of year brings anticipation as families turn their attention toward next year and wonder who their child’s teacher will be for 2014-15.  All grade levels will continue to be Multigrade with the exception of kindergarten.  There will be five first/second grade classrooms, six third/fourth grade classrooms and five fifth/sixth grade classrooms.  The increase in enrollment in third and fourth grades has caused us to add an additional classroom at this level.  Given this, not all students will be able to have their current teacher next school year.  The Fox Staff has a common goal with families:  class placements that allow each child to flourish and grow.

To achieve this result a team of staff members work together to combine their knowledge of all students across a variety of contexts.  Our placement decisions involve team input and are completed with great care.  Our classroom teachers, child study team members, specials teachers and administrators are involved in the process.  The decision is not made lightly nor by one individual staff member, including the principal.  Our commitment is to create balanced classrooms by considering a variety of factors such as gender, academic ability, and social/emotional development.  Our goal is to place each child in a class that we feel will provide the best opportunity for continued growth.

Sincerely,

Cyndie Gordon:
Principal

 

Continuing student registration due April 11

Posted April 4th, 2014 by Mrs. Peacock

Families of students currently enrolled in District 54 should have received a letter in the mail this week, with information about registering their students for the 2014-15 school year.

Families with a parent portal account, received a letter with instructions asking them to log on to our portal site http://sd54.org/portal/  to enroll their students for next year.

Other families received a pre-printed registration form, which must be reviewed, signed, dated and returned to the school your child is currently attending.

Please re-register your child by Friday, April 11 in order to have your child placed on a future class list and to ensure busing is set up for the 2014-15 school year for students who qualify for free busing.
