2018-19 Classroom Information

    May 2018


    Dear Dousman Families,


    We are very proud of our year at Dousman. Through effective, caring educators and strong partnerships with families, students are succeeding. They are owning their learning by setting and achieving individual goals and growing their knowledge and skills. Thank you for your strong partnership - through attending Great Start Conferences to ensure a strong start to your child’s year, to engaging with your learner through tools like Seesaw, through discussions with teachers throughout the school year, and by attending events that showcased student learning. We appreciate your support!


    As we begin to wrap up the 17-18 school year, we are busy planning for next fall. Part of that planning includes class placement conversations. Below is information that shows the grade configurations and teacher assignments for the 18-19 school year.


    As we continue to grow in personalizing instruction for each learner, we are able to work with a wide range of abilities within our classrooms, which will be multi-age starting in 1st grade next year. Multi-age environments have been and continue to be part of all elementary schools in Kettle Moraine. They provide an opportunity for teachers to collaborate, strengthen the work being done in classrooms, and instruct students on a learning continuum. The focus on a learning continuum impacts the success and achievement of all learners.  

    Within all learning environments at Dousman, students receive small group instruction - one of the best strategies for addressing each student’s unique needs and interests. With individual and small group instruction, students are grouped flexibly throughout their day, week and school year. Learners work with a variety of educators, who all work together to ensure every child succeeds.
