Although there is almost an entire term left of school, now is the time we start considering placements for the following school year. We do work very hard to balance classrooms both academically and social emotionally.  It is important that we allocate all of our resources effectively to support student learning. If you have a concern regarding the placement of your child for next year, please let me know asap. I cannot guarantee a specific teacher, but all input received will be considered in the makeup of classes.  If there are social considerations, please let me know that as well. Some families, for example, do not want cousins in the same class or neighbors as they spend too much time together. If you have twins, knowing your placement arrangement is very helpful. Any information received will be kept confidential. Again, my goal is to create balanced classrooms where the focus is on learning and growth.  If you would like to share any placement concerns, please send an email to  with the subject line of 2017-18 Placements before April vacation. 

Are you dying to find something fun to do? 
 Well, look no further!

 Mark your calendars for a great night out 
without the kids!

This evening event is being sponsored by 
QS and KCC PTOs.  It is sure to be a great evening with friends, fun, laughter, and a little mystery! 

Hope to see you there! 

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead! 

Mrs. O'Brien
