    Dear Parents,


    The spelling pilot your child’s class was taking part in has been postponed.  We are expanding the scope of the pilot to include K-5 instead of the current 3-5 pilot.  Our plan is to pilot during the 2011-2012 school year.


    Rest assured, your child’s teacher will still be teaching spelling, vocabulary, and grammar as directed by the Grosse Pointe Public Schools English Language Arts Curriculum which aligns with the state and national standards.


    When we commence with the pilot, we will include the teachers, parents, and students in the selection process to help find the best program to fit for our district’s needs.


    Thank you for your patience and support.  If you have any questions about the postponement of the pilot process, please feel free to contact me. 


    Thank you,



    Kathy Sexton
