Dear Sorrick Families,
Happy March- spring is in sight! It will be nice to thaw out from the February freeze and enjoy the signs of warmth hopefully to come.
It seems hard to believe, but the staff and I are beginning to plan for next school year based on our enrollment projections. At this time every year, we begin to hear parents who want to request a specific teacher for the upcoming year. Most of you know that the teachers and I spend a great deal of time thinking about the placement of each child based on his/her needs. If you have information about your child such as learning style, need for structure, organizational skills, etc, please send me a note by May 1st. I cannot honor requests for specific teachers, so I ask that you please not mention teachers by name. Thank you for adhering to the guidelines listed above and for respecting the professional judgment that goes into the process.
Before closing, I would like to provide Sorrick families with information regarding kindergarten programming and registration for next year. All children turning five years of age by September 1, 2014 are eligible to enroll in kindergarten for the upcoming 2014-2015 school year. All of the documents necessary for enrollment can be found at the District web-site by using the following link: http://www.npd117.net/site/default.aspx?PageType=3&DomainID=4&ModuleInstanceID=404&ViewID=047E6BE3-6D87-4130-8424-D8E4E9ED6C2A&RenderLoc=0&FlexDataID=4957&PageID=1
Please note that the kindergarten programs offered at Sorrick School are a half-day AM or PM general education section as well as an additional half-day AM or PM section for those qualifying for bilingual services. Similar to teacher requests, we are unable to accommodate requests for AM or PM sections for kindergarten and pre-school.
