Thursday

Hi,

I hope you are having a nice long weekend with your child. What a great day we had on Thursday for Halloween!

This Thursday (Nov. 2) is Flag Day. The whole school will be making the UAE flag with our bodies.Your child will need to wear a White t-shirt. It is best if it is plain white. We can turn it inside out or backwards if you are not able to find a plain t-shirt.

Thank you

Halloween

I am sure your children are just as excited at home as they are in school! We are so excited for Halloween.

If you did not send candy for trick or treat, you can still do so tomorrow morning.

You may also send your food for the party in the morning. Thank you to the  parents who have volunteered to help with the activities at 1:30.

Don’t forget the parade tomorrow morning at 8:10. Don’t be late as KG2 is first and you and your child wouldn’t want to miss it. After our parade, Grades 1-5 will have their parade. Please stay outside in the parent viewing area, the hallways will be too crowded for parents and children.

Thank you for all of the food, treats and support to make this a fun day for your children. See you tomorrow!

2 things

Good morning,

Just a reminder that swimming is finished. the children will have “regular” PE for the next two weeks. Be sure they are wearing their running shoes.

Due to scheduling changes we will be going to the library on Wed NOT today. This is for this week only. Next week we will be back to Sunday.

I hope your child’s Halloween costume is ready. Let me know if you need any help with this or have a question. Please be sure to send your trick or treat candy or treat today or asap.

Thank you,

Lois

 

Thursday

Good morning,

Thursday will be a free dress day at UAS. To help support and bring about Breast Cancer awareness the children are asked to wear pink, (boys can wear red if they don’t have any pink clothes). We are not talking about breast cancer or cancer in general, just that we are wearing pink to support a group that is raising money to send to doctors to help people that are sick. KG2 will not be collecting any money.

Today they will be bringing home a paper with the food for our Halloween party on the 26th. I let the children choose what they wanted to bring. If you would prefer to send something else that is fine with me, just discuss it with your child.

Thank you

Halloween

Good morning,

Halloween will be celebrated at UAS on Thursday, Oct. 26th. There are several events happening on this fun day.

  • We will have an elementary costume pared at 8:00 am. You are welcome to come and watch.
  • KG2 will be trick or treating between the 5 KG2 classes.
  • We will have some fun, activities in the afternoon.
  • We will end the day with a small party.

I will need the help of 5 parents for our afternoon activities beginning at 1:30-3:00. Please send me an email if you would like to volunteer. Once I get 5 I will have to say “no” but don’t worry you will have plenty of other times to volunteer and help us out. Thank you.

You will be receiving letters with more information soon. Be sure to look in your child’s blue folders for the notes. You will be asked to send a bag of candy or some other kind of treat and also food or juice for our party.

Thank you for your support. Have a great day,

Lois

 

great week!

Good afternoon,

We had a great week in KG2 LF. Everyone has settled in nicely and we are working hard. Reading, writing, handwriting and making some really hard patterns. Did you know they know what an AB, ABB, ABC and AAB pattern are? They are really getting quite good at making and identifying patterns. We had a good week in the cafeteria, we even won the award for the quietest, cleanest table!! So much to be proud of.

You will find a note in your bag about swimming beginning on Sunday. We will be swimming every day at 12:30-1:15. Up to you if they wear their bathing suit under their clothes or bring it to change into. Either is fine with me. Be sure to send a towel, some kind of pool shoes, a swim cap and of course, underwear to change into after swimming. They should change into their uniform (except Tue which is pattern day.

Pattern day: Your child should come in clothes that are a pattern. How many patterns can they mix?? What is pattern clothing? Any thing that has something that repeats for example, stripes, dots, flowers, checks…. I am sure your child has a t-shirt or dress in their closet with some kind of pattern on it. Don’t forget to send your food for our pattern kababs as well.

Have a nice weekend,

Lois

 

 

Community Fair

The PTSO will be hosting a Community Fair tomorrow at UAS. The event will run from 12:00 PM until 5:00 PM at the school’s main reception area and elementary lobby and exits. There will be a variety of booths selling cotton candy, popcorn, ice cream, pizza and sandwiches. There will be service booths as well (including: ASA vendors, beauty salons, health and fitness services, accessories and more). We hope to see you there!

Thank you,

change in 2nd timing!

Good afternoon,

I am looking forward to seeing many of you tomorrow afternoon. Please note the change in the second timing:

It is 5:15-6:00 NOT 5:30.  I am sorry for the mistake and hope this doesn’t cause inconvenience to those of you planning on coming to the second presentation.

Please note that both presentations are the same, just two different times to help accommodate everyone’s schedules.

Thanks,

Lois
