At this point, we don't know if school will start in-person in the Fall, but we do know the teachers and classroom organization for Queen Anne Elementary. We will have 11 classrooms as we had in 2019-20 and we're happy to share that all our teachers are returning.
Here' s the breakdown that Janine shared:
We will see how the COVID-19 pandemic impacts SPS which, as always, SPS plans to review staffing allocations across the district in late September. If you have any questions on QAE's staffing for next year, please contact Janine.
We need YOU to help show our school to local families who are interested in attending Queen Anne Elementary next year.
We need volunteers for the following slots. Even if you can't stay, we need volunteers to bring coffee and bagels:

Enrollment numbers for Queen Anne Elementary are now available at this link - http://bit.ly/cs501L.
These numbers will change as parents enroll their children over the coming weeks. At this time, based on these preliminary numbers, QAE will be hiring one kindergarten, one 1st/2nd grade, and one 3rd/4th/5th grade classroom teacher. In addition, we will be hiring a PE teacher, Special Ed and Librarian/Technology Coach - all of which will be required to hold various teaching credentials as we anticipate folding them into the curriculum.
Jobs at QAE and other new schools have been posted one week earlier than other positions in the district; thus giving us a head start on hiring. However, there are a number of open positions in the district and hiring will be competitive.
As our enrollment continues to increase, the district will continue to evaluate the need for additional teachers and additional hiring will take place. The sooner we have a final picture on the number of students, the better prepared we will be for the coming year.
If you or anyone you know is interested in Queen Anne Elementary, please enroll sooner rather than later!
