Some reminders:

There is no homework or newsletter this week. I will pass out a Summer Bucket List next week for your children to enjoy this summer.

Tomorrow is the June birthday party at 1:00pm. Please send in your treats to pass out before 1:00pm. It’s the last birthday party of the year for 2BR! Thanks parents!

Next week, 2BR will have a class party on either Tuesday or Wednesday. I will post separately about that by tomorrow. It might include a pool and some food. I will let students sign up to bring in certain foods for that day. I appreciate your support on this.

I have a lot of deadlines and things to take care of before my move to China but I do wish you all the best in the future. Come by and say “goodbye” to me if you get a chance next week. It has been a great year with you all!

Have a great last week and half of school! Stay cool!

New Adventures!

June11

Hello everyone!

I am writing to tell you some exciting yet sad news! Some of you might already know this information. My family and I are moving to Beijing, China in July 2018. I have really enjoyed the last 3 years of my teaching career here in Dubai and will miss my friends turned into family the most. We are looking forward to our next adventure in Beijing though! I will be a Grade 2 teacher at the International School of Beijing. It seems like a great school with great people.

Thank you for a great year together and for making this a wonderful last year in Dubai for me. Maybe if the stars align, I might move back to Dubai after some time in China. If you are around the last day of school, come say goodbye to me! It will be a bittersweet moment for me.

Take care everyone and again thanks for a wonderful year! I have loved teaching and being with your children every day!

Hello everyone!

Homework and Newsletter are on their appropriate pages.

The Language Usage MAP Test will be tomorrow at 11:00am.

PM Reading Testing will start later this week and will go on until mid-June.

The Unit 8 Math Test will be on Thursday this week. I’m sorry that the Pre-Tests were sent home too early. Those were meant to be sent home on Tuesday this week. I will be sending home another copy of it to study from. Please review fractions with your child this week. Thank you.

Reminder: It is getting hot out there and they will be doing PE for the last 5 weeks of school. If your child is fasting, they will have to sit out during the PE lesson. Please make sure your child has a hat and water bottle for the last few weeks of school.

I am planning to do the June/July Birthdays on Wednesday, June 20. Please send in a treat if you would like to.

The End of Year Celebration for 2BR will be during the last week of school. More info to come later on this. 🙂

Have a great week! Hope your Ramadan is going well.

The performance will begin at 8:15 sharp!

Also, Reading MAP Test tomorrow at 11:00am! All students need a good healthy breakfast as well as a good night’s sleep.
