A Message from the Principal

Researching and Creating

As we count down to the final eight days of school, I wanted to provide you with a few updates in regard to staffing for next year. As always, these are the current plans and the plans can change. I want to share what I know thus far, just so we all have the same information and can be working together for the best for our school and the upcoming year.

Based on our staffing numbers and District recommendations, we will be offering three 5th grade classrooms (Mr. Crouser. Ms. Mininger, and Ms. Clark), three 4th grade classrooms (Ms. Rizzo, Ms. Streano, and Mr. Reardon), and one 4/5 blend (Mr. Rozell). Though many of our parents have been actively attending board meetings and writing letters requesting additional FTE, we will need to move forward with the plan for the blend. Our teachers work so hard and they need time to plan and prepare for next year. As part of this plan we will utilize all seven teachers in the 4th and 5th grades to have a “walk-to-math” program. What that means is that students will be grouped according to math levels so that we can provide a richer experience. Like other subject areas, these groups can adjust periodically since teachers will be monitoring students in terms of strengths and areas for growth. Reading and writing will be grouped within each classroom so students can continue to learn and grow at their own pace.

Also, I wanted to let you know that we have a few changes to our teaching assignments already settled for next year. In particular, Ms. Gilkey and Ms. Bass will be moving to second grade where they will continue their dynamic partnership, Ms. Cronen will be returning to second grade, Ms. Revay and Ms. Ronyak will be moving to first grade and each have a class at that grade, Ms. Frisby and Ms. Kanz will be moving to kindergarten and finally, we have interviewed and hired a new teacher, Aubrey Pagenstecher, to Llewellyn that will be joining us at kindergarten.

Next year will be a year of change at our school. I know that our amazing staff is up for the challenge and that your continued support and deep commitment to our school will ensure that all our students have the opportunity to succeed. Thank you.
