Dear Thoreau Families,
We are expecting that 34 additional students will attend Thoreau School next fall. This brings our total number of students to 472. Our 4th grade student total is now 93. Therefore, I will be hiring an additional 4th grade teacher.
There will be five 4th grade classrooms with approximately 18 students in each class. (We have an extra classroom that is currently being used by the math specialist. We will convert this classroom into a 4th grade classroom (located on the third floor).
The interview committee and I have interviewed many wonderful teacher candidates for both the third and fourth grade positions. We are nearing the completion of the interview process. As soon as these new hires have been chosen and approved, I will inform the parent community and Thoreau staff.
