Weekly Updates!


Hi everyone!

So sorry for the late post. I had posted the homework and newsletter but totally forgot to post a message on here.

Today is dress down day for Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year. Students were told to dress in red, white, pink or yellow to honor those holidays. Thank you for sending your kids in looking so adorable!!


  • Sunday, Feb. 25 is a student holiday.
  • Grades 2 and 3 will have Sports Day on Wednesday, Feb 21st. 2BR will be wearing black that day.
  • March 3rd will be International Day. Please watch for information about this day from the PTSO. You can talk to PTSO about being a volunteer at one of the booths!
  • We have started a unit on Community Helpers. We will be looking for parents to be part of a career fair where students can ask you questions about your job(s). Dates and times available will be on your teacher’s blog. You can also email the teacher for more information.

From Middle School:

Hi everyone!  On Thursday, February 22nd, the Middle School Student Council will be holding its annual cookie sale to raise funds for the UAE Make-A-Wish Foundation.  The students get to ice and decorate their own cookies. Cookies are 5 AED each and students can buy up to 2 cookies at one time.  This will happen during their break time at lunch in front of the cafeteria under the shaded area with the picnic tables (middle/high school side).  Please let your students know – this is a great cause and we’ve been doing it for 6 years now!  All profits go to local children with terminal illnesses and help make a wish come true for them.  Thank you for your support!

Important: Grade 2 needs parent volunteers to come in and talk about their careers with the students. We have questions for you to answer for the students for their new unit of inquiry. Please let us know if you can come in Sunday or Monday 1:00-1:15pm OR 1:15-1:30pm. Email me if you want to come in please. Thank you!!

That is all of the information I have for now. Take care. Have a great weekend!
