Monday 13th November

Hi everyone,

My apologies for being a bit delayed with my update.

The Magrudy’s Book Fair is currently happening, I sent you guys an email already, but just to reiterate that if you would like to send money yo school tomorrow then we can go back again tomorrow to buy any books that they wanted. Today we enjoyed browsing and looking at the wide selection of books available.

Also tomorrow we are supporting diabetes awareness month and staff and students are invited to wear blue to show our support.

I will upload the newsletter and homework grid asap too for your reference.

I hope you are all wonderful!

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent-Teacher Conferences are coming up.

They will be on November 15 and 16 from 8:00-4:00pm. We ask that you please leave the child at home so that we can have a discussion about their learning. We will schedule all conferences,  3:30pm being the last appointment time.

Conferences will last a maximum of 25 minutes, it is a great time to build the parent-teacher relationship and I look forward to seeing you all next week.

Please open this link to complete a quick survey regarding your child, to enable me to prepare for our meeting.
A note about scheduling conferences:

***You received information from UAS Elementary School today on how to access the online portal and how to schedule your child’s Parent Teacher Conference (Nov. 15 and 16 8-4pm). If you have multiple children in the Elementary School, their PTC has already been pre-scheduled. Please log on after Tuesday morning to view your pre-scheduled time. Should you have a conflict with that time, it is your responsibility to edit and reschedule accordingly.

Kindest thanks

Miss K

No Swimming on Thursday

I have been asked to pass on this message from the swimming dept

‘UAS is hosting a high school swim meet this Thursday and Friday.   We, therefore, must cancel the elementary swim practice this Thursday, Nov 9th.   Also, due to PT interviews we will have to cancel next Thursday as well.

We will be adding a second practice starting Sunday November 12th  after school.  Please check Ms Terry Papov’s blog for further info.’

Therefore there will be no swimming for 2AK this Thursday, students will take PE instead.

 

Thursday 2nd November

Hello Parents,

I hope you all had a wonderful week. Thursday is here again. I will send the new homework on Sunday. The spelling test will be on Sunday as usual and I will give their new 10 spelling words.

Just a reminder that swimming will start on Sunday and students must bring:

  • bathing suit
  • swim cap
  • goggles
  • towel
  • flip flops/crocs (optional)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Miss K
