Parent-Teacher Input for 22-23

We are beginning the process of creating classrooms for the 2022-23 school year to best meet the needs of all of our students. We value your input in this process and invite you to write about your child's strengths and learning style by completing the questionnaire linked here. Please do not write any teacher’s name in the information you provide or make any specific request for a teacher. Our grade-level teams will need this information by May 13th. Changes to classroom assignments will not be made after classroom lists are finalized, so it is important that you are able to meet this deadline.  


Your child's classroom teacher and teaching team know your child and his or her needs well. With this depth of knowledge, our teaching teams are best able to assign class placements for the next school year. Thank you for working with us to make Briarcliff Elementary a place where your child will do their best.
