A Note From Mrs. Waters

Jaydon's last day was today, and we will all miss him. He and his family have returned their home country, Malaysia.

Please remember to sign assessments in your child's green home folder on the side that says "please sign and return".

Book bags will go home Sunday with their weekly homework and a class book. The book bag should be brought back each night so that your child can take another book from our classroom library to read at home. Book bags won't go home on Tuesday because the students have library and have those "new" books to read. Your child should return his completed homework on Thursday.

The PTA is excited to bring the opportunity for students, parents and teachers to buy new books in the Elementary Presentation Room. There will be lots of fantastic titles not available in Doha. Prices rage from 15 QR to 80 QR. Our class will be going to the book fair on Monday, October 12 at 10:00.

Below is information about Halloween and other important date.
