From the Principal

Some parents have inquired about requesting a teacher for the next school year, therefore, I wanted to clarify the procedure for this process. While we believe your input is important, it is our policy not to allow parent requests for a specific teacher. Our goal at Messmore is to provide students with the educational environment that will enhance their probability for success. Children are not placed in classrooms at random. Current teachers spend a great deal of time assuring that classrooms are “well-balanced” so the best possible learning environment is provided for your children.
