With a number of new staff members, our administrative team was heavily involved in the student placements for next year.  Please be assured that we put great time and effort into building classroom arrangements that will result in the best learning experience for our students as individuals and their collective grade groupings.  In the education setting today, split grades are inevitable, as maintaining adequate and equitable classroom sizes is a priority.  In addition, we consider gender, social dynamics and always aim to balance the level of need in each classroom.   Working through our list of students was a meaningful and reflective exercise.  It gave us the opportunity to think about how special our children are…all 371 of them!  It is important to note that, typically, we do not move students after they have been placed. 

 

On behalf of all of our departing staff, I would like to express our sincere gratitude for the incredible relationships that have formed over the years.  We have been blessed to work with great families in a fun and a loving atmosphere.  St. Joan of Arc is in great hands, as a number of staff members are returning, and the new additions are bringing tremendous strengths to the team.  Except for that Dan Brown fellow…watch out for him! Yes…he's my brother J.  Discipleship has been our mission, and we are very proud to leave St. Joan of Arc knowing that hundreds of people will carry this joyful way of life forward.
