Lastly, we are routinely seeing students arrive tardy to school each morning. When students arrive late, they are missing important pieces of instruction in the morning. Students who are arriving to school late on a daily basis struggle to keep pace with their peers. Please be sure to deliver students to school at or before 8:05.
Classroom Rosters & Teacher Requests
This year, we are attempting to establish classroom rosters prior to the start of summer. We want to give students, parents, and teachers peace of mind by knowing whose classroom each student will be in for the 2020-2021 school year. In order to make this happen, we will begin building rosters in April. Parents who are wishing to request a teacher are asked to submit that request before Friday, April 3rd. Teacher Request Forms are available in the Hawthorne office and once they are completed they will be kept on file. We do not encourage parents to request teachers since granting such requests can cause an imbalance in classroom rosters. However, we will consider all teacher requests, but will not guarantee placement in preferred teacher classrooms.
Per our board approved George Washington/Hawthorne Elementary Student/Parent Handbook:
Teacher Request Policy
Classroom placements are based on identified student strengths and needs. Teachers use their best judgment to place students in balanced classes. We take into consideration each child’s strengths, his/her level of performance and maturity, English language development needs, and any social concerns with placements made without regard to teacher. Because our focus is on improving student achievement by meeting their needs and forming well-balanced classes across the grade level, requests for specific teachers may be taken into consideration but won't guarantee placement. Our school is committed to providing a quality education in every classroom for every student.
