Thursday April 6th 9:00 AM 
Kindergarten and First Grade

Enrollment 2017-2018
As of today there will be two Kindergarten classes for September 2017
and there will be two First Grade Classes.
The teachers in Kindergarten will remain the same with 
Ms. Ocasio (K-1) and Ms. Coello (K-2)

First Grade
Ms. Wong (1-1) and Ms. Saville (1-2)

In order to make it fair for parents to request a specific teacher the regional office decided that parents must pay September 2017 tuition by July 15th. When the payment is made parents may then request a specific teacher by calling the school office.
Why July 15th - this will give ample time for Cornerstone to be updated before school begins.
Both the Kindergarten and First grade classrooms will be evenly distributed based on enrollment.

Departmental Classrooms Grades 2-8 
Ms. Bagley - Grades 2 & 3 ELA and Religion
