The third trimester has begun and while we stay focused on the current school year, we must also begin making plans for next school year. This includes ordering materials, prioritizing summer improvements to our facility, hiring staff as needed and much, much more. Believe it or not, our teachers will soon begin the process of class groupings for the 2019-2020 school year. Yesterday, your student came home with this letter which briefly discusses our process. As mentioned in the letter, I ask that you trust our staff in the creation of balanced classes; however we do want to provide you with an opportunity to provide any information that you feel is pertinent to our process. One of the most joyous parts of next year’s planning is the welcoming of our incoming kindergartners at our annual Kindergarten Preview which will occur next Friday. We look forward to meeting the Maplebrook Class of 2025!
