Supply List for 2016-17

Sharing Your Thoughts on 2015-16

We hope both you and your child(ren) have had a great year at Ox Bow!  While we work hard to do what is best for each child, we recognize that we are very successful with some and may not have found the right supports for others to succeed.  I would invite you to complete a survey to help us gain some information about areas you feel were strong and those that may be a concern for you.

Another way we would hope to gather information is to have parents complete a form about your child that we can use as a resource as we place them in classrooms for school next year.  Our teachers work to create relationships to reach each child, but as we place students, we look to find the best fit for each child.  If you would like to share your thoughts about  your child, please do so.  Specifically, we want to know how you feel they learn best, the type of traits that help motivate them, as well as any personality traits your child might have so we can look to create a good fit for the 2016-17 school year.

Thank you for your feedback and let’s have a great end of the school year!
