April Message From Principal Maguire
Dear Country School Families,
It is hard to believe, but it is already time to begin thinking about next year! Our students, however, will remain focused and engaged in their current work through the remainder of the year. As a faculty and staff, we are in the beginning stages of planning for the upcoming year. In the coming weeks, we will be welcoming our incoming kindergarten families. This is always an exciting milestone for families and a special time for us to grow our school community.
As a Principal, I am working closely with the Faculty and School Council to develop our School Improvement Plan for next year. This year, the teachers have had a keen focus on Reading and next year, we hope to expand this lens into looking at student Writing. We will also work as a school to build upon our work with Safe and Sound Schools and continue to foster our School Community initiatives. It is an exciting time at Country School!
During the months of April, May, and June, the Country staff works hard to place students in balanced classrooms for the following year. On April 1st you should have received a “Parent Placement Letter” in your child’s backpack. It is not a requirement for you to fill out the form, but if you would like to provide input, this would be the most efficient way. We also recommend that you have a discussion with your child’s teacher regarding any special considerations, needs, or past experiences that you think would help in the placement process. Please remember that we do not review the previous years’ placement forms annually. The placement process is multi-faceted, is done with great care, and many people are involved. The forms you submit each year are the ONLY ones we review. Thus, if there were previous situations or information that you would like us to take into consideration this year, please note that on your input form.
Wishing you all a very happy Spring!
