FAQ: WHY DO STUDENTS START THE SCHOOL YEAR WITH LAST YEAR’S TEACHER?

Our school organization is based upon information provided by families anytime between February and the last week of school.  We now need to determine if there have been changes such as:  families that left during the summer who did not notify the school, or whether all new registrants show up for school.

We can see if our projected enrolment and class organization is consistent with our actual enrolment. By starting the students in last year’s classes we have the opportunity to determine if that information is still accurate while avoiding having young children subject to unnecessary moves.  Students, especially very young ones, quickly become attached to a new teacher and their classmates.  It is very important that we avoid moving them from a class in which they have been placed.  By starting with last year’s classes we avoid disappointment.

Students will be placed in their new classes as soon as possible.  Both the students and teachers are keen to begin to build their new learning communities.
