Student Profile Form

Dear GRE Families,

Please take the time to read this form carefully in its entirety.  This is the time of the year when parents and teachers begin to think about what is ahead for our students in the 2019-2020 school year.  The teachers of your child’s present grade level, the guidance counselor, support staff, and the principals will collaborate to form next year’s classes. Please complete this form if you would like to give input into your child’s learning needs. This form is optional.  

What to Include: Include any pertinent information regarding your child’s LEARNING NEEDS and the characteristics of the kind of CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT that will support her/his success.  You may also include any STUDENT RELATIONSHIPS that may positively or negatively affect your child’s learning.

What not to include:  Due to the complexity of the classroom placement procedure, we will not honor a parent request for a specific teacher. Decisions about your child’s classroom placement are made in collaboration with other colleagues and depend upon many social, emotional, and academic considerations.  Asking current teachers to comment on the teachers in the next grade level puts them in an uncomfortable situation.  

We believe this procedure will create balanced, educationally sound class groups that will ultimately benefit all of our students.  Please feel free to submit your thoughts and insights by completing this form no later than Friday, April 5, 2019.  We will NOT accept any forms after the deadline.

The important information you provide will assist the team in determining the best classroom placement for your child.  Please DO NOT discuss next year’s placement with your child’s current teacher.  Please DO NOT request a specific teacher by name. This form is due by Friday, April 5, 2019 (after spring break).

Fourth and First grade students learn about graphing

Learning about Graphing!

Students in a fourth grade class have recently been interviewing their first grade buddies to gather information about their opinions so they could use the data to create graphs.  Pictured above, students from the fourth grade class are sharing their graphs and findings with their buddies.  Both grade levels have been studying graphing, and this experience was a great opportunity for learning across grade levels.
