Parent Input for Class Placement for 2024-2025

At Pine Spring, we are preparing classes for the 2024-2025 school year. The school staff works collaboratively to determine the best setting for each child.  It is the task of the grade-level teachers, specialists, and administration to determine the distribution of teachers and students to optimally organize classroom assignments for next year.  A variety of factors, such as student personalities and academic abilities, are also considered as we create our new classes.  Other factors impacting the decision-making process of student class assignments are new student enrollment and teachers moving to a new assignment. Pine Spring families can assist us in determining class placement by sharing their insights about their child with respect to academic and behavioral information here.  Please note the following: We do not accept requests for specific teachers for the upcoming grade placement. Please be mindful when sharing about a student that is not your own child. We will only acknowledge language that you would want another family to use to describe your own child. Completion of the form is optional; however, the deadline for any correspondence is May 19, 2024.

No Smartwatches for Testing

During the normal school day, the FCPS SR&R allows students to wear smartwatches as long as the phone and text functions are off. However, during SOL testing, students are not allowed to wear the watch to the testing location. We are asking that you have all students refrain from wearing their smartwatches during testing days. This will help to ensure that the watches are not lost or stolen. 

As always, phones are expected to be off and in students' bookbags during the school day. 

School Calendar

Please remember that the school calendar for 2023-2024 and 2024-2025 are both available and allow you the opportunity to enjoy time with family, while still ensuring a strong learning experience for your child.
