Grade 2 went to Fagnoon Art School to experience the many crafts of Egypt, pottery wheels, weaving on Bedouin looms, and baking bread. They made pots on the pottery wheel, walked in the fields, and discussed different farming tools, herbs and plants. The trip was an excellent opportunity to enjoy time in the countryside and to consider differences between urban and rural areas.

From the Handbook



“The routine or “obligatory” giving of gifts among Staff Members, or by students or parents/guardians to Staff Members is discouraged. To avoid unnecessary pressure on Staff Members, and especially on students, who, for many reasons, may not be able to participate, gifts should be limited to small items and tokens of appreciation”.

After School Activities

NO After School Activities on the week of Dec.17- 21

Just a reminder that there is no ASA next week, that include Softies as well.

If your child is usually a bus rider after his/her ASA, they will then be expected on the 3:20 pm bus next week.

After school activities will resume right after the winter break.

Share the schedule with your child - Repeated

We had a great start to the after school activities this week. Thank you to all the parents who had shared the schedules with their children, they came to school knowing what activities they had which helped them have a great day.

ASA Attendance, Commitment, Excuse & Cancellation - Repeated

As many students were scheduled to at least one of their choices, therefore the expectation is that they attend all these classes. If they are absent from school, they are automatically excused and no need to inform us. If for any reason students cannot attend their ASA on a specific day, parents must submit this Form.

Students who miss 1 class of ASA without an excuse will be dropped out of this class and parents will be notified. That way we can enroll other students who are on the waiting list. We do appreciate so much the parents who have already submitted the form as it helped us send “happy e-mail” to others who were on the waiting lists. The waiting lists will no longer be counted after the winter break i.e. if we have not contacted you before then, that means that no spots were opened up and schedules will be set as is.
