I have been contacted by a number of parents requesting grade placements for 2020. As you can appreciate, it is extremely difficult to meet the request of all parents. Although everyone is passionate about friendship and staff preferences for their child, I am afraid that requests cannot be considered.
The school will structure grades around information we hold near and dear to our hearts about each child. The children will continue to have the opportunity to select friends they would like to be placed with. All children are guaranteed at least one child they have chosen. We are mindful that at times children can make some very strong friendships but occasionally these are not so productive when it comes to the learning environment.
I am asking you to trust in the professional opinion of staff in the placement of your child for 2020.
