Blog for Week of January 14, 2018

Dear Parents and Families of UAS Elementary School,

What a week!  UAS had its annual KHDA Inspection and all went very well.  The Inspection Team thoroughly enjoyed their visit and in-depth look into UAS’s educational programs.  The Inspection Team’s feedback was very complimentary of our teaching staff, our curricular programs, our student progress towards academic attainment and school safety.  The most important take-away was the sense of “Community” that parents, students and staff felt exemplified UAS as indicated through interviews and surveys.  This sense of Community is key for a positive learning environment for our children!

This week will be an additional inspection week facilitated by our accreditation bodies of International Baccalaureate (IBDP and PYP), Middle States Association and Council of International Schools.  The informational feedback gained from these groups will reinforce UAS programmatic strengths and provide a guideline for continuous program improvement as well.

An important meeting for parents in Grades 4 and 5 will take place on Tuesday at 7:45 am in room 300.  This will be the second meeting with Eco Adventure to discuss the upcoming grade 4 and Grade 5 Camp experiences scheduled for February.  At this meeting the camp experience will be reviewed including educational activities, sleeping arrangements, teacher chaperones/supervision and address any parental questions.

Junior Scorpions Track and Field Information

This is just a quick note to remind all students in Grade 4, 5, and 6 who have signed up for Junior Scorpions Track and Field that practices have resumed and are being held at their regular scheduled times (Sundays & Wednesdays 3:15 pm-4:15 pm). Also, ASA buses will be back up and running starting on Sunday January 14th.

Welcome back! Happy New Year!

Welcome Back Students, Parents and Families of UAS Elementary School!

Happy New Year!!!  We hope your winter break was fun, family oriented and restful.

This week will be the Annual KHDA Inspection.  UAS will showcase its academic growth, quality teaching and engaged student learning!  Next week will be UAS’s accreditation visit by International Baccalaureate, Middle States Association and CIS; these visits provide UAS another avenue to showcase its school’s programs, students, faculty, and community.  The two weeks will be quite busy, though the feedback from the visits will benefit our school’s continual progressive development.

We are asking for your support and assistance with student dress code.  Over the last few weeks of the school year, we have noted a drop in student compliance with dress code expectations (not the Dress Down days).  Please review the excerpt below with your child.  Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Welcome back and Happy New year…this will be a great year at UAS!

Excerpt from UAS Elementary School Handbook:

UAS students wear a school uniform to be in line with our school’s core values of respect, responsibility and excellence. As a school located in the United Arab Emirates, our UAS uniform is designed to respect our host country’s culture.  The UAS uniform promotes respect and responsibility for self and our school community.

The UAS student uniform consists of navy blue trousers or full length skirts, 1 piece dress, (elementary students may also wear UAS shorts) and a white polo shirt or navy blue sweatshirt with the UAS logo. The physical education uniform consists of blue UAS shorts and a white UAS T-shirt.  For elementary students, the P.E. uniform may be worn all day on the days on which students attend physical education. T-shirts worn under the school shirt must be plain white.   Shoes should be good quality for recess play (e.g. not sandals) and must be velcro or slip on until they are able to tie their own laces.

All uniforms are school issued and need to be purchased from the school uniform shop.

All clothing, shoes, accessories, hairstyles, etc. should not be disruptive to the learning environment. If there is a concern, the final decision will be made by the appropriate administrator.  On dress down days, students may not wear clothing that is revealing, exceedingly tight, too short, or containing inappropriate language or pictures.

For students in Prek, KG1 and KG2, all children must have a complete change of clothes at school. Accidents do happen and the child  needs to have a set of clean clothes inside a ziplock bag.   All the items should be labeled clearly with your child’s name.

Welcome back! Happy New Year!

Welcome to December!

Dear Families and Friends of UAS Elementary School,

We hope your National Day Celebration and the 4-day weekend was an enjoyable family time!  Thank you all for your support with the school’s celebration of National Day last Thursday.  The students came all “decked out” in National Dress or Emirati Flag colors…it was fun to see!  A special note of thank you to the UAS High School Emirati Club for the organization and vision for a UAS national Day Celebration…the evening was superb.

Last week, Mr Torris received notification of UAS’s KHDA inspection.  The KHDA inspection visit will occur January 8th through the 11th.  A team of teachers and administrators will be working diligently over the next 2 weeks of school to prepare the proper documentation for the upcoming inspection.  As a school we anticipate a very positive response from KHDA as to our school’s rating.  Good things have been happening at UAS with the fruit of those labors coming to bear on this report.

Also last week, it was announced that Mr. Sealy, current High School Principal, will be the new Director for UAS beginning the 18-19 school year.  We wish Mr. Sealy a warm congratulations and expect the school’s growth and students’ services to continue to blossom under his leadership.

Week of October 31-November 2 – Flag Day picture this Thursday

Hello Parents and Families of UAS Elementary School!

I trust you all had a “family” 4-day weekend and had some fun!  The two professional development days were quite eventful and productive at UAS.  Early Years Program faculty visited 3 other schools’ early years programs and captured many ideas while reinforcing the great program at UAS.  Other faculty worked on GOOGLE certification and curriculum development…overall a quite productive and meaningful time.

Celebrations from Last Week!

  • Thank you all for your family’s participation in the traditional American holiday of “Halloween”.  The parade was quite wonderful as our students modeled their Halloween costumes!  The day itself was mingled with academics and homeroom celebration activities.
  • Mr. Ayman Fayez, UAS Islamic Studies Coordinator, initiated the Prayer Pass system for students in grades 4 and 5 to participate in daily prayers before leaving school for the day.  
  • Grade 2 held an “Artifact Museum” to celebrate the culmination of the PYP Unit of Inquiry.  Students chose any artifact to demonstrate how people and the world change over time, bringing in personal and historical artifacts and explaining their significance…a fun and insightful experience for all.
  • Grade 3 held a “Tug-of-War” pitting homerooms against teachers within their Unit of Inquiry on forces and motion.  Each 3rd grade homeroom developed strategies to overpower the faculty within a rope “Tug-of-War”…each class had two trials.  It was very interesting to observe the students brainstorm their strategy, apply their strategy in the “tug”, reflect upon its success and design a new strategy based upon their reflections.  The students excelled in their brainstorming and came very, very close to beating the adults!

Upcoming Events

    • Thursday, November 2 is UAE Flag Day.  As in past years, all UAS students will meet on the football pitch at the start of the school dressed in assigned color shirts for the school UAE Flag picture.  Please note grade level colors below:
        • Pre-K: (RED)
        • KG1: (GREEN)
        • KG2: (WHITE)
        • GRADE 1: (BLACK)
        • GRADE 2: (RED)
        • GRADE 3: (GREEN)
        • GRADE 4 (WHITE)
        • GRADE 5: (BLACK)
    • Grade 4 will be participating on a larger flag ceremony hosted by Al Futtaim at Festival City Mall.  Students will be transported to the mall area around 8 a.m. to participate in a larger scale UAE Flag Ceremony.  This experience ties directly into their unit of inquiry.  The goal of this event is Creating the largest human flag on Festival Bay in UAE National Colors”.
    • The ES Counselor Coffee has been canceled for this week Thursday, November 2nd due to the Flag Ceremony.
    • The monthly Principal Coffee will be held on Wednesday, November 8th.   A presentation by “The Change Associate” group will be held with the topic parental-child communication strategies.  As children become older, we parents must develop methods of listening and communication that promotes openness and empathy.  Please come join us at 8 a.m. in the ES Library.
    • Upcoming ES Library Events:
      • Magrudy’s Elementary Book Fair Nov. 12-16, open until 4:30 daily, UAS lobby
      • Author & chef Ying Chang Compestine visits elementary students.  Nov. 21-27
      • Meet author & chef Ying Chang Compestine Nov. 22, 3:30, in the elementary library (her website here)
    • The 4th-5th grade ASA choir has an amazing opportunity to participate in a children’s choir festival on December 6th. The festival will be hosted at Kent College (near Silicon Oasis), and elementary school choirs from all over Dubai will be participating. Our choir will sing 2 songs and also perform a mass piece with the other choirs. There will even be a Santa visit! More information will be coming in the following weeks.
    • A message has gone out to faculty to initiate “Healthy Snacks” for students in the afternoon.  Snacks to bring into school should be crackers, fruit and/or vegetables.  The snacks will be consumed during regular academic time as students work within the classroom.

 

  • Parent-Teacher Conferences held during the day on Wednesday, November 15, and Thursday, November 16 between 8 am and 4 pm  No school for students on those two days.  More information in next week’s ES Blog.

 

Finally a school request to parents of students in Pre K through KG2.  In order to ensure a smooth transition from students to parents we ask that parents of:

PreK & KG1 students walk with their child to put their book bag in the cubby and proceed to the EC playground. Parents may stay as long as they like on the playground; however, the EY faculty request that parents do not follow their child into the building.  This request reinforces the developmental need for student to gain confidence and independence at school (i.e. saying goodbye to a parent/caregiver, finding their cubby, unpacking their own bag, following the morning routine of the school etc.).

KG2 students will remain on the “ big playground” and say goodbye to their parents at that time.  For similar rationale as above, parents are requested not to follow their child into the KG2 hallway.  Thank you for your support and understanding.

As always, the ES staff feels extremely fortunate to be a part of your family’s educational experience…Thank You for the opportunity!
