Elementary Arts Alive Display

April 19 – May 3, 2018

We are pleased to announce that the elementary arts alive is officially on view! Our KG2 – 5th Grade students have worked hard since the beginning of the year to create the many different artworks currently hanging in the front and back lobby.

Due to the large number of students, only one artwork per student was chosen to be displayed. Parents are encouraged to collect the rest of their child’s art portfolio from the art room during Student Led Conferences.

Enjoy all the amazing art!

Swimming and Student Led Conferences

Just wanted to send a friendly reminder that students need to bring their swimming stuff on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday as they will continue swimming during PE.

Also, please sign up for student led conferences this week on Wednesday and Thursday.  Students have those two days off!


Thursday- No Swimming and Field Trip

We will be going to Dubai Opera House on Thursday for our field trip.  We will be leaving the school around 9:15.  If you volunteer to be a chaperone, please plan on being here at that time.  The tour begins at 10:00 if you are meeting us at the Dubai Opera House.  Please make sure the students bring there lunch that day as we are unsure if we will be back in time for lunch in the cafeteria.  If we arrive back pass 11:30, students will be eating in the classroom.

Due to the field trip, there will be NO swimming on Thursday.  Please make sure that students wear their school uniforms.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Swimming starts TODAY!

I apologize for the late reminder, but swimming starts today! Please make sure that students have their swimsuits (we prefer they wear them to school), towels, googles, and flip flops today!  They will be swimming this week and next week.


Please read all about what is happening in 1KP!

The last trimester is off to a great start! The students are excited about the learning taking place and showing lots of respect around the building!  Here are a few things occurring in 1KP. Please make sure that you are reading this blog as I will post important information about school or class events and provide you with information regarding the learning taking place.

Home Learning- This week there will be no home learning sheet.  We are beginning new units this week, so I would like to provide instruction before sending other work home to reinforce skills learned in class.  Continue to work on the one provided before Spring Break for guidance and read! A new Home Learning sheet will be posted on Sunday of next week.

SWIMMING BEGINS NEXT WEEK! As part of PE, the students will begin swimming next week for two weeks.  Attached is a letter from Ms. Ettl.  Please make sure that students come dress in their swimsuits under their clothes and bring a change of clothes for after swimming. Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Content- This week we started brand new units for UOI, Reading, Writing, and Math.  We have completed a few pre-assessments and are diving into the new content.  Attached are the UOI Letter, IPP for Math Unit 8, and IXL Unit 8 activities.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back! I hope you each had a wonderful Spring Break! I cannot wait to see all of your children on Sunday and hear about what fun adventures they had.

We have one more trimester left for the school year, which is full of learning.  New units will be starting for Math, UOI, Reading, and Writing.  Mark your calendars: Student Led Conferences will be held on April 25th and 26th.  More details on the conferences will be shared in the next week or so.

Students will continue with PE for the next three weeks.  Please make sure that your child has a healthy snack for snack time, a water bottle, and a hat for the playground as it is starting to get warmer outside.

See you on Sunday! 🙂
