Petition to add 4th grade class
As you may be aware, we were not able to post fourth grade classes due to the board reviewing whether or not to add another 4th grade class. As concerned parents, we are petitioning to add a fourth, 4th grade class because rising enrollment has resulted in class sizes of 28, 28 and 27 at River School. This is highest number of students per class that River School has seen in 13 years. Time is of the essence to bring in another teacher before Wednesday August 10. We would like to avoid posting class lists until this issue is resolved as we do not want students to be uprooted from their class assignments - this is extremely disruptive not only to families, but to the teachers and staff of the School.
On behalf of the 4th grade parent community, we urge you to add another class in order to continue to provide the high level of academic excellence which River School demonstrates across the board.
Thank you kindly,
Carmel River School 4th grade families
