You're Invited: Parent Forum Regarding Merging Four Peaks and the Middle School
Please consider joining me and principals Anita Gomez and Valerie Dehombreux to further the discussion about merging the arrival and dismissal times of our fourth through eighth grade students and how it will effect students from kindergarten to eighth grade. Mrs. Gomez has discussed this issue with her site council on multiple occasions and recently visited the McDowell Mountain site council to expand the conversation. Based on the generally positive response and input from those groups, it's time to expand the discussion to include all interested parents.
The meeting will be held at the Four Peaks Elementary/Fountain Hills Middle School in the Fourth/Fifth Grade Team Room on Tuesday, February 7th from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. Topics will include: benefits of merging the start times and dismissal times; changes to busing routes and schedules; changes to McDowell Mountains' start and dismissal times; impact on before and after school activities, including clubs and athletics; issues related to drop-off and pick-up procedures; an overview of the instructional days of fourth and fifth graders compared to sixth through eight graders; and other matters raised by attendees.
I hope you are able to attend this forum as this represents a significant change to our current practices. We want to share with you the background and context for considering this change and hear your thoughts and ideas to assist us moving forward.
Patrick Sweeney, Ed.D.
