Placement of students for the 2019-20 School Year

The placement of students into classrooms is an important process.  It is the belief of the Rochester School District and the Folwell Professional Learning Community that children receive the most benefit from their educational experience within a balanced setting representative of the greater community in which they live.  Placement teams, consisting of classroom teachers, administrators and other appropriate staff members, make placements that will maximize the intellectual, psychological and social development of each child and of classroom groups.

We believe our professional staff members are most familiar with each child in the classroom setting and are in the best position to recommend individual student/teacher placements. By using the following practices, Folwell staff seek to consider individual needs of the student, provide balanced classrooms, and insure all our children are being given equal consideration in the placement process.

A placement team, considers each child’s educational needs, as well as psychological and social needs.  The number of children, such as boys and girls by teacher, as well as the representation of total community in each class are considered when building class communities.   The team will make a recommendation as to the placement of each child, within a given grade level, for the subsequent school year.  The placement teams will consist of the sending and receiving classroom teachers and may include administration and other professional staff. ‘

If you feel there are specific individual needs and would like this information taken into consideration when making classroom placements,  please contact the office manager to request a meeting with Wendy J. Moritz, building principal before May 4, 2019.  

Placement of your child will be done through a caring and professional process and shared next fall.

Thank you!

Basketball Game this Thursday!

Everyone is invited to this exciting event at Mayo High School.  With over 25 Folwell staff members and all of our fifth graders participating, chances are you will see someone you know!

To help build excitement for the big event we will be allowing students to make signs during lunch over the next three days.  Please send your child with $0.25 if he or she would like to make a sign to wave at the game!

Thank you so much for supporting your fifth graders and their overnight field trip to Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center in May.  We wouldn't be able to provide this opportunity without your support!
