We will be creating class lists in May and will plan to let parents know of their student’s teacher for next year. We hope to be able to provide a quick teacher video clip for your students to get a brief introduction to their future teachers as well. If you will not be returning to Park Lane please let us know ASAP as that information will help us when creating and balancing classes.
Parents wishing to provide input in their child’s placement for the upcoming school year may do so using our Learning Environment Request Form. Under the current circumstances we are providing an online Google Form for this (https://forms.gle/uE2Fh2ZGcoNcgZam8). Please remember that specific teacher requests will not be accepted, but learning environment information and other useful information that can aid us in a student’s placement is welcomed. This form is now live, and an email copy was included with this newsletter if you’d like to fax or scan/email it. Requests will be accepted until Friday, May 7th.
Staffing updates are always bittersweet as we lose a couple of friends, and gain others. We have some grade level movement due to staffing numbers, and grade level needs. We want to wish the very best to Andrea Miller our beloved speech teacher who is retiring after 22 years at Park Lane. Also, after a good start to his career we are losing Eli Webster who is moving on as well. We wish Andrea and Eli all the best!
We are excited to welcome Cloey Roper, and Silas Dufrene to our Park Lane family. Cloey is a recent University of Utah Graduate Program graduate who comes highly recommended from her program. She has big shoes to fill, but we’re excited to welcome her here. Silas hails from Louisiana/Dallas, Texas bringing 18 years of 4th/5th grade teaching experience. He rose to the top or our 12-person interview pool. We’re excited to have him join our team and help us departmentalize 5th grade next year.
