Week 20 January 11-15

January 11, 2015

Dear Parents, 

We hope you enjoyed your weekend! 

This Friday, January 15th, the report cards will be going home. On this day, we will also have a half day for conferences. These conferences are on a need-to-meet basis. For the half-day, is it a early dismissal at 11:45am. 

There is no school on Monday, January 18th for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

This month your child will have the opportunity to purchase books through the International Scholastic Book Clubs. This is an optional activity offered by the school, in case you want to motivate your child to read at home and to increase their own library. With you purchase, our library will accumulate points to redeem for more books for the benefit of you children in our school. The due date to purchase the books online is January 25. The books will arrive to the school in one single delivery, and we will distribute them to the students according to their orders, approximately three weeks after the purchase due date. 

100 Days of School is coming up! It will be celebrated on January 28th. Each student will create a project with 100 items. Students can use their imagination and creativity. The project should include a total of 100 items. The students will present their project to the class. The project must be brought to school on Wednesday, January 27th.
