Pool Party!

Dear parents,

Grade 1 will have our end of year pool party at school tomorrow. Let’s all hope for nice weather from 11:30-12:30!

Please have your child bring their swim suits and a towel to school for Thursday 13th June. They may also bring their favorite pool toy (beach ball, floaties, water wings, tube, etc).

You are welcome to send some kind of snack for your child to share. We will be having two birthday celebrations tomorrow for Pammy and Oliver so we already have plenty of cake. Savory items and any other finger food would be wonderful additions to our picnic.

Report cards will be handed out either tomorrow or Friday. Students will also receive their Portfolio and a folder of art projects.

Here’s to a fun final two days of school this year!

Click here for a link to the song words for the end of year concert. The students brought home a yellow colored paper copy of this today. Please encourage your child to read through and sing these songs for reading homework.

Please complete and return the language options for Grade 2 letter that many of you received up at the orientation day. I sent extras home today. This information is crucial to scheduling and staffing for next year.

Kind regards,

Angela

Student-led conferences

Dear families,

Below is the Grade 1 schedule for conferences this Wednesday. Please check that I have your time correct.

There will be other students and their families in the room at the same time as you, so just come right in and your child will show you where to start.  I will close the room for breaks (11-11:30 and 1-2pm). Outside of those times,  if you arrive a little early or a little late, that is no problem.

If there is an emergency and you need to change your time on the day, please email me angela@apis.ac.th, or send me an SMS 082-894-2694. I can be flexible with times on Wednesday, but I am not able to change the day.

Please remember that there is no school on Wednesday. Just turn up with your child(ren) at your meeting time for each class. I look forward to seeing you!

I Love to Read Week

Tuesday 19th March – Book Swap

Please bring any old books from home that you are finished with and want to give away in your backpack. Ms Angela will tell you where to leave your books. You will receive tokens to use later to choose books that are NEW TO YOU that someone else has finished with. You may bring used books of any language or level – baby books through to adult books.

“Twins Day”

If you like, you and a friend can dress as ‘twins’ for the day and wear matching clothes. You may wear the same colored clothes as a friend, or wear your hair the same way, or the same funny hat.

Please also wear PE shoes as we may have basketball in the afternoon.

Harry Potter is a champion as he helped defeat evil wizards.
