Homeroom assignments will be finalized over the summer with placements made available in August at back to school night. Please understand that it is very difficult to honor parent placement requests as many factors are considered when composing homerooms. 


Thank you to those parents who participated in our survey. The staff has reviewed the survey results and responses and we will use your thoughts to inform the coming school year. The results can be found in a powerpoint here. The winner of the Woodstock Farmer's Market Gift Card is Jen Flaster!
