Dear Parent or Guardian, Our staff will soon begin to build classes for the 2013-2014 school year. This is one of our most important tasks to prepare for the coming year. Throughout this process, our goal is to place students in the best possible learning setting. We try to build classes that are balanced in terms of learning needs and styles, gender, emotional and social development, academic achievement, and behavior. We welcome parent involvement in this process, as we recognize that parents know their children better than anyone else. If you would like to offer insight, share your perspective, or express a need on behalf of your child, we invite you to write a letter and submit it to the main office. Because it is very difficult to grant requests for specific teachers, we ask that your letter focus on your child's learning style, significant learning experiences for him/her, and/or the type of teaching style to which your child responds best. We ask that all requests be submitted no later than Thursday, May 2nd . We will use the information you provide, along with input from teachers, to place your child in a classroom that will best meet his or her needs.

Viernes, 5 de abril de 2013. Estimados Padres o Encargados, Nuestro personal pronto comenzará la construcción de clases para el año escolar 2013-2014. Esta es una de nuestras tareas más importantes para prepararnos para el próximo año. A lo largo de este proceso, nuestro objetivo es colocar a los estudiantes en grupos lo mejor posible. Tratamos de crear las clases que están equilibrados en términos de necesidades y estilos de aprendizaje, el género, el desarrollo emocional y social, el logro académico y el comportamiento. Les invito a que a que participen en este proceso, ya que reconocemos que los padres conocen a sus hijos mejor que nadie. Si desea ofrecer una visión, compartir su punto de vista, o expresar una necesidad, en nombre de su hijo, le invitamos a escribir una carta y enviarla a la oficina principal. Debido a que es muy difícil consentir las solicitudes específicas para escoger maestros, le pedimos que su carta se concentre en el estilo de aprendizaje de su hijo(a), las experiencias de aprendizaje significativas para él / ella y / o el tipo de enseñanza que su estudiante responde mejor. Pedimos que todas las solicitudes sean presentadas a más tardar el jueves 2 de mayo. Usaremos la información que usted proporcione, junto con el colaboración de los maestros, para colocar a su hijo en un salón que mejor se adapte a las necesidades de él o ella. Sinceramente,
