Good morning, Please click on the link below to read what’s happening in KG2 this week. it’s a very busy but fun week for us.
Please click on the link below to read our newsletter for the week. As you can see we are very busy in KG2. Your children are doing amazing work. I hope they are telling you about the books they are writing.
In order to help you be more informed of what we are doing in the classroom, the KG2 teachers will be sending out a weekly newsletter every Sunday. This will give you a few points of what we will be covering in our curriculum. There are also a few questions that you can use to help guide your discussions with your child. Please let me know how you like it and if you have any questions or suggestions for us.

Last Wed was our back to school night. I really enjoyed meeting with many of you, sharing what we do in KG2 and what our day looks like. I am sorry you were not all able to attend. I have attached my presentation for you to look at if you would like.
Please click on the following link to view my back to school night presentation. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Things are going well in the class. Your children are busy with Reader’s workshop, writing and counting. I am pleased with how well they have settled into our routine and they are very hard workers!
We have one more week of swimming (our last day of swimming is Thu Oct 4th) and then after that on Day A we will have PE in the gym. They should be sure to wear their running shoes and shorts or pants (no dresses) on these days.
We have 1 missing pink towel, please check your child’s bag to see if they came home with an extra towel and send it back tomorrow. I also have 2 pairs of socks, one black and one white. If your child came home without socks please ask them to get them and bring them home.
Thank you, Have a nice week,
***Tomorrow is swimming and library. Dismissal at 2:00.***
Back to school night is on Wednesday, Sept. 19th. This is where I will go over our day and curriculum for KG2. There will be two sessions. I will be presenting the same material in both sessions, so you only need to attend one of them. Choose the one that best fits your schedule. 3:45-4:30 or 5:15-6:00
There will be child care provided from 3:10-4:30 for free. Your child will be escorted to the MPH at 3:00 leaving you free to come at 3:45 to 4:30 for the presentation.
If you have another presentation to attend for a sibling, it doesn’t matter which one you go to first. All teachers will be presenting twice on this night.
You may leave your child 3:10-6:00, and for 20 dirhams there will be food provided.
Between the two sessions (4:30-5:15) there will be an opportunity for you to go to the library to meet our wonderful specialists, Arabic, Islamic and ELL teachers as well as classroom teachers, counselors and principals.
Of course, if you have help at home your child may go home as normal and does not need to stay for child care.
I know this is a bit confusing so please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions. I hope to see you there.
What a great week we are having. A few reminders or updates;
Thank you, let me know if you have any questions or concerns, Have a nice weekend.
Don’t forget today is early dismissal. Children will be dismissed at 2:00 every Tuesday.
See you this afternoon.
Welcome to KG2LF! I am very excited about our new class. We had 2 great days this past week. Everyone was so enthusiastic about school and all that we did. They were amazing listeners and behavior was incredible, in fact one of my best starts to a new year in a long time. I can’t wait until tomorrow when everyone will be here all together.
I will post upcoming events, reminders and notes on our blog. I have subscribed everyone. If you wish me to delete one of the emails you gave me, just let me know and I will take care of it.
I would like to complement ALL of you for packing such great snacks and lunches. They were healthy and plenty of food that your child seemed to like. Don’t worry if some of it came home, everything is new and hopefully once they get used to school they will eat more.
You will be bringing home a note from Gloria Furman on Sunday asking if you would like to join a WhatsApp group for our class. I encourage you to join. I think this is a wonderful way for parents to share information, photos and help with organizing parties and volunteering. I do ask that if you have a problem or something that concerns you that you please come and see me directly. I am very open to speaking to you about concerns you may have for your child. You can email me, and we can set up an appointment to meet. email@example.com
I am excited for the year to start. I think it is going to be a great year and I look forward to getting to know you and your child better as the year gets started.
