We hope your holidays were filled with joy and happiness!
It is wonderful to see everyone back at school! Please remind your child that he/she is returning back to school and that means that he/she must turn his/her 'thinking switch' on; follow classroom and school rules and bring his/her folder to school each day with his/her completed homework. We also know how hard it is to wake up early again after a long holiday so, we would like to remind all parents the importance of having your child go to sleep earlier on school days and having a healthy breakfast before school each morning.
