First day of school (Saturday) September 21, 2019
We will meet in the school yard on the first day of school 9:00 – 9:30. All classes, including the kindergarten classes this time, because on all other days they can go straight to their classrooms while the grade school students start off the day in the gym. We’ll begin the day with all classes lined up as usual. The teachers will hold a sign up to help figure out what line to stand in. After the morning assembly, all grades will make their way to their classrooms. On that day, at 11:45am, there will also be a special mass for the opening of the academic year called Veni Sancte.
I would like to ask you all to bring your children to school on time to avoid disturbing the class, please abstain from staying in the building too long at the beginning of the day and promptly pick your kids up on time at the end of the program from the courtyard at 12:30pm. (Parents of kindergarteners should be ready to pick their children up 10 minutes sooner.)
· Everyone should bring a snack or lunch that should be nut free.
· Grade school students don’t need to bring much as the school will provide notebooks and pencils. They can bring their own pencil case.
· Students should not bring chewing gum or electronic devices to school (Mobile phone, iPod, iPad, portable gaming devices)
· The school yard area has a lot of new flowering plants that were planted or potted this week. Let’s hope we can enjoy the blooms for a few more weeks, so please be vigilant of your child/ren not to damage the plants.
· Also very important that the children (and adults) respect the property of the Willowbrae daycare that operates on weekdays at that location. They have beautifully renovated the building and they chose to spend a fortune on the carefully selected furniture they use, that we would prefer not having to replace for them.
· We need to pay special attention to uphold the hygene standarts of the daycare as much as possible. Indoor shoes are a must bring item especially on wet days and we ask that everyone chages their shoes by the entrance of the building.
· All kindergarteners should bring a set of clothes to change into in case of accidents. I must emphasize that the youngest ones need to be toilet trained. We are not a daycare and we do not change diapers.
This year’s KCSP scholarship recipient is Xenia Szolnokine Jaczko. She has studied economics at the University of Debrecen in Hungary as well as she completed the Dancer and Coach program at the Hungarian Dance Academy in Budapest. Her folk dance and music background led her towards teaching folk dancing at the Tisza Dance Ensemble and to be the director of the Tallinka Childrens Dance Group. Let us give her a warm welcome!
