Greetings Wheelock! It is that time of year! My elementary colleagues and I have just sent home the class placement letter! I know this opportunity to inform me about your child is valued by many parents. I enjoy reading about my students and we try very hard to be extremely thoughtful as we consider every placement. It is a long process, which we take very seriously.
In most cases, parents are pleased with the outcome, but we know it is impossible to please everyone. However, I want you to know we sincerely try our best.
Thank you so much for any information you may share with us about your child. If you don't write a letter, please do not worry. Letter or not, we still give equal consideration to all students. Many parents feel we know their boys and girls and are confident in our decisions. As illuminated by the letter, many, many factors are considered during the placement process. If you do choose to communicate information to me about your child, please write to me by April 15th. Have a great day!
