Have a great Spring Break!

Dear Parents and Families of UAS Elementary School,

Have a wonderful Spring Break!!!!  We at UAS wish you all a restful, fun-filled and family time vacation.  We will see you all when students return on Sunday, April 8.

A  special Thank You goes out to UAS’s KG1 Teacher Team, KG2 Teacher Team and Ms. Crystal Hana, EY Coordinator, for their outstanding Mother Day Celebration program!  The students sang wonderfully, the student-to-Mom gifts were cherishable and the recognition of Moms special relationships with their children was memorable.

Congratulations to ES’s group of Grade 2 students who performed in UAS’s Wizard of Oz…a great performance was completed by all our students!!

Thanks to PTSO for a very informative and insightful PTSO meeting on March 21st.  The two speakers provided great information…please come and join the next PTSO meeting in April!

Principal Coffee

Please see the attached FAQs from question submitted at the last Coffee.  If any additional questions or clarity needed, please email David Dorn (ddorn@uasdubai.ae) for additional information to be added to the FAQs.     FAQs

The next Principal’s Coffee will be held on Wednesday, April 18, from 8am-9am in the ES Library.  Topics will be school lunch, school-wide behavioral reinforcement plan, parent school-home communication needs, and the PYP program.  See ya all there!

Ramadan Schedule

The Ramadan school day timing have been finalized.  The school day will begin at 8am and end at 1pm for all grades, Pre K through Grade 12.  The actual days of the Ramadan schedule will be published later.

All UAS transport students will be able to ride buses home with buses departing UAS at approximately 1:15pm.  Early Years (Pre K – KG1) who wish to pick-up their child from school, may do so at the normal dismissal time of 12:45pm.

Student Led Conferences

Student Led Conferences will be held on Wednesday, April 25th, and Thursday April 26th.  The intent of these student-family conferences is for the student to showcase the learning that has taken place over the school year.  The goal is for the parent and student to have an active conversation which celebrates the student’s learning experience to date. It is not a time for parent-teacher talk, rather student-parent dialog.  The children very much enjoy sharing their school experience with the parents…it is a unique intimate experience for both child and parent.

More information to include times, sign-up process, etc. will be sent to families the week of April 8th (after Spring Break).  More to come…..
