As students settle into their new classrooms, we are often asked how decisions are made regarding the organization of classes. A great deal of time and effort goes into the appropriate placement of students. When assembling classes, meetings are held which combine input from last year’s teachers, the Learner Support Teacher (LST), the Counsellor, the Child Care Worker and the Administration Team. When students are placed in classes, the following factors are taken into consideration. As each class situation is different, the factors are not in order of importance.
Given the above criteria, our staff works hard to ensure that each class will form a solid and effective learning group. After many thoughtful discussions that started last Spring, students are now placed into their permanent classrooms. Please note that sometimes children are initialy nervous with their placement and may need your support as parents to gain understanding and acceptance. Generally our experience is that children easily adjust within the first few weeks. It is absolutely in your child's best interest if you can help them with this process. Thank you.
