A Message from the Principal

April 29, 2016

Dear Sunrise Drive Families,

During the last few weeks of each school year, teams of teachers come together to place children into classes for the following school year.  Placement of students in classes for the coming school year is a decision that is made by the current grade level teachers, special education teachers, special area teachers, and the principal.  These teams collaborate and consider a child’s learning style, personality, and other pertinent characteristics of that individual.  Attention is also given to creating a positive learning environment. Preliminary class lists are developed with no teacher assignment.

With this in mind, we are unable to guarantee the granting of requests for specific teachers for specific children.  However, if you feel that you have any specific information you would like to provide about your child, in order to help us in placing your child, please fill out the attached “Parent Input for Student Placement” form.  You only need to fill out the form if you have a concern or something that you think needs to be taken into consideration.  
Please fill it out and return it to the office by May 6, 2016.  Please do not request a specific teacher.

We are committed to making the best possible class placements for each of our students.  It is our intent to provide a successful learning experience for all students.  We encourage your continued confidence in the Sunrise Drive teachers to make the best possible placement for your child in consideration of the previously mentioned criteria.

Information regarding classroom assignments will be mailed to families in early August to accommodate summer enrollment and withdrawals.

Thank you,
Andrea Davidson
Sunrise Drive Elementary School
