    We get ours sometime in the middle of summer along with the principal's letter. So I am guessing in about 2 weeks I will get mine.

    School got out at 2:30 pm on June 8th; my new class list was in my mailbox at 3:30 pm on June 8th.

    Kind of a mixed blessing.

    I got to MAKE my class list!!! We created our list after K round up was over!! :) I've known since April!

    No guarentees...principal approval, parent requests, registration, etc...but I have had a general idea for quite some time!

    Our teachers got a "tentative" class list the day after the last day of school (a meeting day for us). There will likely be changes over the summer, so another list will be put in boxes on the Thursday before Labour Day and then a "final" (subject to change) list before 7:30 the first day of schoo.

    We got ours about a week after school was out. That was after parent requests too. However, sometimes things change before school starts...new enrollment, people moving, etc.

    We work closely with the grades below us and above us when making our class lists. We finalized our lists the day after school got out. It's nice to have an idea as to the number of students you will have the following year.

    If we're lucky, a few hours before they're posted the Friday before school starts.

    Seems they're always making "last minute" changes, so I don't even put names on anything except for desk name plates (with extras!) until I see the whites of their eyes. :D

    I was lucky enough to have my class list in May. I was also lucky enough to make my own class list (sort of). I worked with my two co-workers in K to make the lists for 1st and since I am moving from K to 1st so I know all of the students in my room already.

    Wow - I guess we are lucky in Maine... we do something in June called 'Step-Up' Day... I get my class list the first week in June and then... I meet them for about 45 minutes. They come and we get to see each other and do some activities, etc. It's really awesome. Usually one or two move out and one or two move in - but basically I know and get to meet my new class before school is over.

    Ours are in the office just waiting for us to pick them up. We send postcards to our class before the start of school. I will probably pick mine up on Monday.

    I saw my final list today, and am very excited! I have a great group. We do create the lists together with the head of school, the counselor and the other teachers. But the head always has the final say.

    Anyway, good luck to everyone! I hope you all have fantastic classes!

    I got mine a week ago... I called most of my parents today & had 2 disconnections (which is usually a sign they will not be there).

    We have Open House starting at 4:30 on the 17, so we'll probably get class lists at 4:25 that day.

    My school has something called a "Moving Up Day" and you get to meet all of your new kids on the last day of school. They spend like 30 minutes with you to chat, get their school supply list etc. I love that idea, even though I almost cried when I had to hand deliver my old kids to their 3rd grade teachers.:(

    We don't get our list until the before school in-service training. However, we are looping so I know the majority of the children in my class.

    I saw my tentative list the other day. I won't see me official list until the 15th or 16th of August. Meet the Teacher is on the 17th. We have many kindergarteners that are registered last minute, but so far I have 15 kids on my list.

    That would be nice to have a "Moving Up Day"; I wish we did. The parents found out if their kids were in our classes before we did. It was on the bottom of the report card.

    In the past, we've gotten ours the day before school starts. This year, we start on a Monday, so maybe we'll be lucky and get them on Friday!

    So those of you who get your lists so late, does your principal have you call parents, or send home postcards?

    I bet those schools are madhouses w/ parents trying to see lists. Heck, my school can be with kids hoping their class got magically changed.

    Our students find out which class they are in when they get to school the first day. All staff are outside (or in the gym if it's raining) with all class lists and the students can approach any of us to find out their class assignment. (2 years ago, the students had been told at the end of June whose class they would be in; over the summer there were staffing changes and because of a huge number of new enrollments all classes need to be reorganized --that was a first day with a lot of drama when kids weren't in the classes they thought they would be!)

    We always start school on a Tuesday, and class lists are posted (for families) on the Friday before.

    I got mine yesterday during our in-service which we did not have. The school is still a war zone. We could not do anything to our rooms due to the dust and debris. My principal told us to do what we could and go home if the dust was too much, which is what most of us did. The cleaning crew is supposed to be doing overtime this weekend and on Monday we should be able to set up. The kids come on Wednesday whether we are ready or not:eek:

    At our school, a back to school packet goes out to all of the families during the summer. It has the parent handbook, the school directory, forms and releases to fill out, that kind of thing. The class list goes out with it. Those will go out next week. The parents will have a few weeks of knowing before school starts. There won't be any changes to classes unless a new student is added to a class. So, I saw my final class list yesterday. I can't imagine knowing the day before.

    At the other school I worked at, class lists were given out on the first prep day, so there was a week notice.

    In the school I student taught at, the teachers all got together in the gym before school began during the prep days. Each child had a card with their name on it. They would create the classes with the teachers from the year before. The card had symbols on it. Big A for big academic issues, small a for small issues. B or b for behavior, and P or p for parents (meaning the parents were a nuisance.) They tried to create a fair group for every teacher, and keep kids together who should be together, and seperate those who should be seperated. It was interesting.

    We do this as well, in May. After this is done, the administration and Special Ed team do any tweaking that is required. Our classes and staffing were reorganized 3 times after this ws done in early May--I'm curious to see what the classes look like when school starts!

    We got our class lists in June. I will have 17 students in September! Yesss! We have one of every grade, so there is no question for students about what class they will be in.

    We got our class lists before the school year was over. I don't do much with it until after registration which is in a week or so, because more kids will probably be added to the list.
