Dear Families,  

It’s that time of year, and we are already beginning to think about and plan for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year!  (Isn’t that incredible?) A huge part of this planning includes the class placement process.  At Trautwein we put a great deal of time, thought, and consideration into class placement decisions for each and every student.  A variety of stakeholders (classroom teachers, specialists, special educators, counselors, administrators, AND parents) all play a critical role in the composition of our class groupings. 

While we as a staff know your students well and will be conscientious in our decisions about placement, with both other students and the classroom teacher, you as the parent know your child best.  As a result, your input is greatly desired!  Parent Input Class Placement Forms came home earlier this week, and are due March 13th.  (Each grade level has a different color form.)  We encourage all parents to take time in completing this form to share your child’s strengths, considerations for our staff in placements, and any concerns you as a parent may have.  While we do not honor specific teacher requests, we work diligently to honor parent input, as appropriate.  Any thoughts you have are welcome, including suggestions for student separations and students that work well with your child.  Feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher, or the office, if you would like an additional copy of the Parent Input form.  In the meantime, thank you in for your time in sharing your thoughts regarding placement.  Your input is incredibly valuable and will be utilized throughout the decision making process.  Thank you for your continued support and partnership!

~ Shannon
