WHERE OH WHERE HAS THIS YEAR GONE??? I CANNOT BELIEVE I AM POSTING FOR THE FINAL WEEK OF KG1!!! We obviously have been SUPER busy and we want to make sure you are aware of this coming week.

We said our goodbyes to Jude and Nabeel on Tuesday and Ayla and Kareem on Wednesday. Mrs. Beam has been SUPER sad this week, as this will likely be my last time seeing these sweet faces. But all good things must come to an end, and I count my time here in Dubai a blessing! So, I will dry my tears and enjoy these last days together!!!

    

 

*KG1 participated in Move Up Day on Tuesday. Students had a great time visiting the KG2 classrooms for a little chat of what to expect for next year and engaging in some activities to show how smart they are! Mrs. Finney, Ms. Daramola and Ms. McCarthy commented on how principled all of our students were!

* NO SCHOOL THURSDAY (tomorrow) or SUNDAY for Eid al Fitr holiday!

* Playground/Morning arrival – Students should continue to bring water bottles with them each morning when they arrive on the playground. We are going to continue staying out til around 8:25 each morning for next week!

* On Monday, the rest of the school will go back to regular dismissal time, which means KG1 bus riders will leave at 12:45, as they did before Ramadan. After School Care will resume normal schedule, unless you notify me otherwise. Parent Pickups are still 12:45 for KG1.

* Monday is Super Hero Day– Students should dress as their favorite super hero and can wear costumes or t-shirts. If the costume is too hot to wear all day, you may send a change of clothes. *** PLEASE NOTE… “IF” THEY DECIDE THERE IS NO SCHOOL ON MONDAY, THEN SUPER HERO DAY WILL BE ON THURSDAY, JUNE 21! But for now, we will have school on Monday!

* Tuesday is EOY Celebration- We are looking forward to celebrating a successful year of KG1! Next Tuesday students should wear party clothing to school. Parents are invited to come to the MPH around 11:20 to place your food items on the tables and grab a seat. We will start promptly at 11:30! IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO ATTEND, BUT YOUR CHILD IS ATTENDING, PLEASE LET ME KNOW BY EMAIL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. ALSO, IF YOU ARE NOT ATTENDING BUT YOUR CHILD IS, WE WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO SEND THE FOOD ITEM WITH THEM TO SCHOOL PLEASE. FOOD ITEMS MAY BE PLACED ON DISPOSABLE PLATES/TRAYS/ETC. IF YOUR FOOD ITEM REQUIRES A SERVING UTENSIL, PLEASE BRING ALSO, AS WE MAY NOT HAVE THOSE AVAILABLE AT SCHOOL. We will have sign out sheets in the MPH for you to sign your child out, following the program.

What should you bring? 

I would like for my parents to bring one tray of sweet treats. For example: cupcakes, muffins, doughnuts, individual baked goods, Arabic sweets, etc. NO CAKES please as we need everything to be individual servings. NO NUTS!

* Wednesday is Fun Day- Students are NOT swimming this day, but will get wet! Please have your child wear their swimsuit to school with their BLUE class shirt over it, and any shorts they don’t mind getting wet! They are also encouraged to wear a hat, as we will be outside an hour or so! Apply sunscreen before school if needed. Then, send a dry uniform shirt/shorts/underwear/towel and slippers inside a bag, so they can change and come home dry!

* Thursday is the LAST DAY OF KG1 with 12:45 dismissal! There is no school for KG1 the last week of the school year, due to Early Years teacher professional development and planning for the next school year!

I WILL POST ONE FINAL BLOG POST NEXT THURSDAY TO INCLUDE A LINK TO A MEMORY VIDEO AND OUR END OF YEAR PROGRAM! AND IF I HAVEN’T SAID IT BEFORE, PLEASE STAY IN TOUCH. MY PERSONAL EMAIL IS khbeam@gmail.com. I would love to keep in touch with your family.

Take Care!

Love, Mrs. Beam
