PLACEMENT REQUESTS The school administration, in cooperation with the classroom teachers, is responsible for the student classroom placement assignments. Many factors are considered when determining classroom placements, including student ability levels, academic strengths and challenges, processing skills, special education needs, personalities, friendships, maturity levels, past and present conflicts and resolutions, growth and development, teacher-student relationships, student to student relationships, gender influences, birthdates, birth order, etc. The teachers and administration of the school make all placement decisions with the studentsâ€™ best interest in mind. Any educational concerns need to be submitted in writing to Mrs. Fyfe no later than April 19th. Specific teacher requests will not be accepted.

School Council Update March 15, 2012
Evaluation Committee Update Weâ€™ve been focusing on assisting the administration with enhancing the framework and the tools they use for faculty review and evaluation, and fine tuning the coaching process leading to faculty growth and development. From a coaching perspective, a process is being used that includes pre-conferencing with each teacher, observing a lesson, and then postconferencing with the teacher. This is a coaching format used to enhance student learning. All of the teaching staff has been involved with either Kelly or Mary as their coach. If you have any questions, please contact Pat Sheehy, Chair - Evaluation Committee, at patricksheehy@northwesternm utual.com.
Technology Committee Update Most recently, our attention has been on putting together funding options to provide 22 iPads and a cart for students at the LCT campus. In December, additional Endowment money approved for technology use was allocated to purchase 14 more iPads and a cart. We are thrilled and grateful that the LCT Campus is now integrating, with gusto, 22 iPads to provide hands-on higher-order learning activities for students. In a short period of time, we have seen that integrating iPads into the classroom transforms teaching and learning. Therefore, we want to continue this vision and learning model next year to the LCM campus as our current third graders graduate and move to that building. To accomplish this, we are working to fund an iPad cart and 22 iPads for the Mequon Campus. In anticipation of this positive update to instructional practices, our teaching staff is participating in formal and informal 'just in time' professional development. Additionally, we are planning 'shadowing' days for our 4th grade teaching staff to visit the LCT campus to gain insight as to how the current third graders are learning with these mobile devices. If you have questions or comments, please contact Laurie Yingling at email@example.com.
Donâ€™t forget to check the school website under Communications > School Council for the School Council minutes as well as information on all of the sub-committees.
