Newsletter September 2018

Welcome back to school!

It is our pleasure to welcome all of you, whether you are returning or new to our school to another year of fun and learning. We are looking forward to a great start.

The new school year has begun.
New children will be attending class in a gradual entry process according to the schedules that we have emailed out in August 2018.

The first weeks at school are usually a settling-in period for the new and old children as well as for the teachers. To make this time easier for the new and especially very young children, please make sure that you always drop off and pick up your child on time. We are establishing a new routine, especially for the younger children to gradually help them to ease in and get them used to their new environment.

In the next few weeks we will be focusing our work on respect, classroom-rules, grace and courtesies as well as organizational skills. The returning children will be resuming their work and will keep working on their individual skill levels.

Our school supports healthy and nutritional eating . For children that prefer to bring their own snacks or lunches we must insist that no chocolate or high sugar content desserts or candy are being brought to school. Food that contains or may contain peanuts or other nuts can also NOT be brought into the classroom. Please read the food labels carefully! Thank you for paying attention to these VERY important matters.

Furthermore the parents are asked to bring in three photographs of their child, if you haven't t done so yet, which we will paste on each childâs file, their cubby hook and their health file. The children will learn to organize themselves by filing their work in their individual files. Since the younger children are unable to read, or recognize their name at this point it is helpful to use their photographs.

During the year we will be sending out newsletters to keep you updated on what the children are doing.

Should there be any concerns or questions please feel free to talk to us during drop off or pick up times.

We are looking forward to an exciting and successful school year.
