Attention Families –

Thank you to those of you who have come by to complete the early registration paperwork. This will greatly reduce the potential to have to wait in line at Meet the Teacher to complete paperwork for the fall. If you have not done so, please come in and fill out registration paperwork at NVA during the hours of 9 until 2, Monday through Thursday.

With regard to requesting teachers – in the past we have allowed parents to request teachers. The goal at NVA has been to hire and train our teachers to the high standards we hold for our school of excellence. Although you may communicate a preference to us, our instructional team will engage in a very thoughtful process this fall to place students in classes that ensure the best balance of heterogeneous students with regard to academics, gender, behavior and style. There will be no guarantee of your placement request. Your student will be placed based on the best fit using the data we collect for all students. It is with the greatest confidence that we ask you to support our placement decisions. Classroom lists will be posted at Meet the Teacher on August 15 in the cafeteria at 11:00 a.m. Class lists are made very shortly before that so we cannot give that information over the phone prior to the posting as it will not be finalized.

Thank you for your support and confidence in our amazing team of NVA teachers.
