Movie Night

PTO Coffees and Family Movie Afternoon!

Dear Fellow Parents,PTO_Logo.pdf

We hope that you and your families had a great week after the Eid Holiday and are now ready for the weekend. A few points that we would request you to make note of:

Arabic Classes for Parents

Last Monday saw the commencement of the Arabic Classes for Non-Arabic Parents. It is a great opportunity to get back to school as a student and has been received well by parents. The classes start from the basics of conversation and would eventually lead to reading and writing. On behalf of all the parents we would like to extend a big thank you to Ms. Lisa Gibson, Mr. Mahmoud Ali and Mrs. Neveen Refaat for organising this and to Mr. Eric Web and Mr. Andrew Torris for supporting this. The classes are held in the Arabic Class Room across the Music room on the 1st floor, every Monday from 8 AM to 9 AM.

27th October: PTO Coffee Morning

The October Coffee Morning is right around the corner on Monday October 27th at 8:00 AM. Due to the incredible turn out we had at our September coffee morning; we are moving the venue to the MPH (Multi Purpose Hall) main lobby. The MPH is located behind the cafeteria. Along with the coffee and snacks, we would now also have plenty of room available to host everyone. Please look forward to a message, with the agenda, on 23rd October 2014.

27th October: Family Movie Night, 3.15 PM Secondary Library

The PTO is organising a Family Movie Night for you and your children. Tickets would be available starting Monday, for advance bookings, from the Accounts department or online through the home room teacher of your child and would also be available at the door. Please look forward to a detailed flyer on Sunday the 19th October. All parents are welcome to join for the movie and can buy as many tickets as you want as long as the audience is from UAS Community only. Please note that there are no school busses running after the Movie and that the Pick-Up for the children has to be arranged. We also need volunteers to help out at all PTO events and volunteers at the Movie Nights get one free ticket for themselves.

Please feel free to contact us at pto at uasdubai.ae or via our Facebook page.

Thank you for your support and “Be Involved.”
