International Week T-Shirts
Some of you have been given incorrect sizes for IW shirts for students. Apparently they were missing a box of child smalls and mediums, which have now been found.
If you have shirts that are the wrong size ACCORDING TO THE ORDER FORM, you can visit the MS office on Sunday. Alternatively, you could return the shirt with your child tomorrow and let me know, so Pooja and I can try to sort this out for you.
Parents who just want a different size from what they ordered should come to the MS/HS lobby after school on Sunday or any other day next week before or after school to exchange the size.
Homework focus: Discuss what country is special to you and what makes it special and different from other countries. Do they have traditions? During explore students will design an artifact that represents that country.
International Week Buffet
First Grade go to the buffet at 9:30, so parents are asked to send a light lunch for their child that day. The cafeteria will be open.Key points:
ALL families are asked to contribute food (No sign up)
TONS of servers are needed (sign up link in Sahifa)

Homework and Home Reading
Home Reading: I have also had some conversations with students and parents about reading more books during the week. Students can currently take home 2 books from the classroom, along with their weekly library books and Raz-kids online reading. From now on, students can also exchange their classroom books during the week, if they wish. The only requirements are that their previous books should be returned and that they will have to check them out with Ms Pooja, as they usually would.
