Homeroom assignments

As the anticipation of a new school year arises, so does the excitement of finding out classroom placement. We are in the process of changing our student database system, which allows us take advantage of many features that we previously did not have. One of the enhancements will allow grade school parents to access their child's progress online. 

You will receive an e-mail mid-August with login information for your child(ren). This login will also serve as notification to your child's homeroom for the school year. Once you have entered the system, the classroom teachers name will be available. 

Class lists will not be posted on the doors. 

If your email changes, please notify the JRW office via email to mcnurlana@somonauk.net. It is imperative that the school have correct email addresses on file.

Thank you and enjoy the rest of your summer.
