A note from Mrs. Thexton
I will send a newsletter home each week, usually on Thursday, with details of upcoming events and important information that you need to know. This information can always be found on Sahifa, as well.
On Thursday, your child brought home a Green Home zipper pouch. Inside of it was the Green Home Folder. Inside the home folder you noticed that one side has papers that can be "left" at home. The other side holds papers that needs to be sent "right" back to school.
We will start official homework AFTER Back to School Night. For next week, please complete the parent survey and "Star Student" page with your child. These pages will help me to know your child even better and through your eyes. You may return those pages any day next week.
In addition to myself, we have a wonderful Teaching Assistant, Miss Raina. She used to work in Upper Elementary and then moved away. We are very fortunate to be able to have her working in our classroom.
Over the course of a week, we also have other teachers coming in to our classroom. Miss Brooke is our Learning Support teacher. She will work with children in the classroom, take small groups and some children will work with her during the World Language block. Miss Kristin is our EAL (English as an Additional Language) Teacher. We might see her in and out of our room checking up on students who are working on English proficiency.
Some children may opt to purchase a lunch from school. It consists of a full size sandwich, fruit or veggie cup, digestive biscuit, and a drink (milk, apple or orange juice). The cost is 13 QR. Be ensure your child's Dragon Band has been topped up. Children may purchase items ala carte, if you will let me know in advance that it is ok.
