Invitation to Parents to Attend an Informational Meeting about our Multiage Program

Russell Yates and Heidi Mattern

The following is a copy of the first letter that was sent out to all parents of 1st and 2nd grade children, inviting them to come to an informational meeting about our school's first multiage program (team-taught, 2nd/3rd grade). The subsequent meeting was a huge success and we had more families sign up than we had room for!

An Invitation

Multiage classroom for grades 2-3

Chimacum Elementary School

Dear Parents of First and Second Grade Students,

Beginning in the 1995-1996 school year, we will be offering a team-taught multiage class for students entering the second and third grades. This will expand the number of educational options available at Chimacum Elementary.

The classroom will emphasize creation of a nurturing community where students begin to take responsibility for their own education. Students will have the opportunity to remain with the same teachers for two years, and have the chance to work with both teachers simultaneously. Recognizing that learning doesn't always happen at a steady pace, we will provide an environment in which students can progress at their own rate while ensuring coverage of the curriculum.

If you are interested in this option, please come to an informational meeting on Wednesday May 3rd, from 7 to 8 p.m. This meeting will be held in Russ Yates' classroom, #916, at the elementary school. You may also indicate an interest in this program when you fill out your Parent Input Sheet, which will be sent to you within the next two weeks. Heidi Mattern or Russell Yates can be reached at Chimacum Elementary (732-xxxx).
