Thanks to everyone who participated in Discovery's Second Annual STEM Fair! All of the staff members were so impressed with how competently and enthusiastically our students could explain their projects! Special thanks to parent volunteer Praj Ghatpande for endless hours of planning and coordination. Additional thanks to Sydney Herzberg, Robert Huss, Michelle Moon, and Samantha Simmons for the tremendous support they provided teachers and students.. What a tremendous event!
It is time to begin thinking about class placement for next year. Can you believe this? Time flies! Many factors impact a student’s class placement. Following are key factors that are taken into consideration:
Each grade level team uses their knowledge of students and works with specialist teachers, the ELL teacher, SAGE teacher, counselor, instructional coach, and behavior coach to develop class rosters. They take great care and put in many hours of time, to create balanced classes with the goal of providing each child a nurturing, caring, structured, and challenging classroom environment.
Parent Information and Input
Parents may have input into the placement process. Parents can contribute pertinent information such as the following: "Please separate my twins, Justin and Jason," or "Please do not place my daughter Mary in the same class as Jane, since we are neighbors and they are together all of the time," or "My child has only been in the United States one month and needs ELL support." Please note we do not accept letters that specify individual teachers by gender, experience level, or name. You can find the 2019-2020 input forms for class placement on the Discovery website. Click here to access the form. There are also hard copies in the office. Input will be accepted through May 3rd.
Once rosters are created and staffing is finalized, teachers will be assigned by the administrative team. Important to keep in mind is that enrollment and staffing numbers are not considered accurate until August, and even then, they can change. So these decisions will not be final until this time.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and support of this process. Please be assured we do all we can to ensure thoughtful placement of each child.
Things to remember:
Please direct enrollment questions to Debbie Alberts at 425-837-4100.
