Wow, we have been and continue to be, SO BUSY IN KGI! This time of year there are many wonderful things to celebrate and be a part of. Here’s what’s going on over the next couple of weeks… 
  • Our SWIMMING has officially ended until after Spring Break. The weather has turned cooler and we will take a break until warm weather returns in April. We are proud that so many students have been Risk-takers in their swimming experience!


  • Tomorrow we will give our Caring Boxes to our Support Staff! We have been so excited decorating our boxes and bags, making cards and sharing ways that we can be CARING!!! Thanks to all of you who sent in the items to make this event possible! Look for pics on the blog this weekend!!!
  • Next Wednesday, November 29, UAS will celebration UAE National Day!!! All students are encouraged to wear UAE colors (red, green, black and white) or UAE national dress. (This is NOT your child’s national/country dress, unless you are Emirati of course). There will be lots of photos on this day!
  • Also, on Wednesday, November 29, our class will be going outside to enjoy the Emirati presentations and fun day. We are asking for 4 parents for each of our KG1 classes, to assist us that morning for about an hour. If you are available and have not contacted your child’s teacher, please email her or add your name in this signup sheet… UAE Day Parent Volunteers Signup
  • No School on Thursday, November 30 and Sunday, December 3. Enjoy UAE National Day/Weekend with your families!
  • Student Portfolios are due back next week. We hope you have enjoyed looking at these together with your child. We will add more items to them throughout the year!


  • MARK YOUR CALENDARS… Thursday, December 7, we would like to invite all parents to join us for our KG1 Winter Celebration, at 8:00 am in the cafeteria. We will send more information out next week.
  • Handwriting Without Tears– At Parent Teacher Conferences, we gave all parents a handout explaining the proper formation of writing the alphabet. Thursday, we are sending home some “pieces” similar to what we use at school, for you to cut out and practice with your child at home. These include, Big Line, Little Line, Big Curve and Little Curve.  Also, we are sending you a copy of the Picture Cards that will help learn the SOUNDS of each letter. We are excited about this program and thank you for spending time with your child at home, learning together!

As always, thank you for supporting your child’s learning and excitement about school. We appreciate all you do!!! Mrs. Beam
