A Note From the Music Room
Before winter break, students were busy in the music room learning about family traditions and how music helps shape memories. It was a great opportunity to share multicultural songs of the season as student were preparing for our all-school, Winter Assembly which took place on Friday, December 16th.
After the New Year, please be sure to look out for a "Save the Date" notice regarding all of our upcoming spring concerts, where each grade-level will perform in a 30 minute musical show. Please e-mail Rosie Wilson, General Music Teacher with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Middle School Facilities Plan
With the approved Middle School Facilities Plan, middle school attendance areas have been revised for the 2017-2018, school year. Current 5th graders who reside in the Bell-Graham, Ferson Creek, Lincoln, Richmond/Davis, and Wasco attendance areas will attend Thompson. Current 5th graders who reside in the Anderson, Corron, Fox Ridge, Norton Creek, Munhall and Wild Rose attendance areas will attend Wredling.
Fifth grade students attending an elementary school that is not their attendance area school as the result of an intra-district transfer may find they have been assigned to a different middle school than their classmates. The Board took this, and several other special circumstances, into consideration and will offer middle school transfer request applications for a limited category of students. These categories include:
Siblings of current middle school students assigned to a different school
Former Ferson Creek students who stayed at Ferson Creek after their planning areas were reassigned to Corron
Elementary school open enrollment students
Lincoln students residing in Planning Area 83 (Surrey Hill & Long Meadow) who can walk to Wredling
The Middle School Transfer Request applications are available on the District website via district.d303.org under the For Parents tab - Forms page. The Superintendent or designee will make the decision on any requests, and all decisions are final.
