To Demand a 4th section for the current 2nd grade class at Maple Glen Elementary School
The addition of a 4th section would mean we would have 19 and 20 in a class respectively. Our classes currently have 26 students! The board determines the class size and have neglected this class at MGES while giving other 2nd grade classes in our district classrooms of 18-19 students. If we do not make our request, this unprecedented and disadvantageous class size will carry through the entire elementary experience for this group of children.
In 2013 when Dr Pladus and the school board made the decision to increase class sizes in some schools he was quoted as saying that the first grade at Maple Glen is being " most closely watched". It is clear that they were not watching and neglected to take the necessary changes to add a classroom this year. They watched as both behavioral and academic issues have occurred.
Please join us to advocate for our class of children and sign the petition to get a 4th section for our children.
