Jack and the bean stock show-

The kids really enjoyed Jack and the bean stock play. We went over in the morning and afterwards we did a few activities that went along with the play.

Diabetes Awareness Day

Fun races on the field for Diabetes Awareness Day

The kids had a wonderful day with lots of fun activities. First we have 4 different races on the field and afterwards had a picnic on the grass with our friends from PreK and KG1.


I hope you all had a great conference and walked away feeling positive. I enjoyed getting to chat with you about your wonderful children and how much progress they have made so far. We have come a long way. I am so proud of how much they have grown and matured in such a short amount of time. Thank you all for working with me and trusting me with your precious little ones. You will receive report cards in December.

Highlights from this week.

Highlights from this week.

 SEEDS AND PLANTS– The kids are enjoying watching their seeds grow. We will be planting them in dirt next week. I’m always amazed myself that life comes from a tiny seed that looks all dried up! They have been amazed too. It will be fun to see the growth that occurs over the long weekend.

We have started our new unit, we are talking about Homes and what animals live in what type of home.

Reed was a night and a dragon with 5 tails.

Last day in the drama room. The TA’s are working on changing the theme of our drama room. So next week there will something new in there. I was out today, I was coaching at a swimming meet, but heard from Ms. Derhyll that the kids had a wonderful and fun day.

 Updates for next week.

The Book Fair is open each day next week, from 8:00-4:30. You can also shop on your own before or after your Parent Conference next week!   Next Monday, November 13, we will be treated to a Jack and the Beanstalk play by the Lollipop Theatre, in our MPH. We will go promptly after 8:00, so please don’t be late for school. In the event you arrive late, please bring your child to find us in the MPH. Also, please make sure they use the toilet before coming to school. Next Tuesday, November 14, we would like to have ALL items (Shampoo, lotion, razors, etc) that we requested for our UAS Support Staff Caring Boxes, turned in. We will be preparing the boxes to give to our wonderful Support Staff. We want the students to be able to place the items they bring into each box, so PLEASE let me know if you forgot what your child needs to bring. We want all of them to participate!   Next Tuesday, November 14, UAS is taking time to acknowledge Diabetes Awareness Month. It is estimated that 1 million people in the UAE suffer from this disease. Please have your child WEAR BLUE as a reminder to stay healthy and try to avoid this life threatening disease. Next Wednesday, November 15 and Thursday, November 16, there is NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS. These two days are set aside for teachers and parents (no students) to meet and discuss how things are going so far this school year. You have been given lots of information regarding the survey, how to sign up online, sibling schedules and so forth.

Highlights from this week.

Orange Day

SEEDS AND PLANTS– We have read about, watched videos of time lapsed plants growing, and most excitedly watched our very own seeds starting to sprout in the baggies. Next week  the students will plante them in cups adding soil and water. I’m always amazed myself that life comes from a tiny seed that looks all dried up! They have been amazed too. It will be fun to see the growth that occurs over the weekend.

FALL AT LAST- There seems to finally be a break in the heat and we are enjoying more outdoor activities. If your child brings/wears a jacket to school, please make sure it is clearly labeled with their name, so they don’t get mixed up.
