Please be advised that the Stafford Township Board of Education Regulation #5410 states that “assignment of a teacher to each class group shall be the sole responsibility of the Building Principal.” Parent/Guardian input is always welcome.
The Stafford Township School District makes every effort to balance our classes in terms of ability, gender, and number of students in a class, and many other criteria – which often makes it difficult to honor parent/guardian requests. If you have specific concerns about the placement of your child, or have specific information that will help us make an appropriate placement for your child, please feel free to send that information to the building principal. If you wish to have one teacher removed from consideration, such wishes will usually be honored, provided that appropriate reasons / justification / rationale are well documented and included with the correspondence.
All pertinent information must be submitted to the building principal by May 15th. Any information received after that date will not be considered.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Particularly during this time of the year, the weather can vary greatly from day to day. Please check weather forecasts and make sure that your child is dressed accordingly. The students will continue to go outside for recess every day that the temperature is above 32 degrees.
Our school is extremely proud to announce that our Discovery Center teacher, Mrs. Susan Kilgallon, has become a National Board Certified Teacher. This certification is achieved upon successful completion of a voluntary assessment program designed to recognize highly effective and accomplished teachers. Congratulations, Mrs. Kilgallon!
Congratulations to Mrs. Kelly Reese... this year’s McKinley Avenue School’s Teacher of the Year! Mrs. Reese is a third grade teacher who exemplifies the kind of educator who makes it her personal mission to help her students become the best readers, writers, and mathematicans they can be. Her dedication to our school is truly appreciated by all!
