We hope you enjoyed your weekend! We have many exciting events for this week, so please read everything below!
100 Days of School is coming up! It will be celebrated this Friday, February 9th. Each student should create a project with 100 items at home. 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.
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 February 5th. 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.
As Valentine´s Day is around the corner, we are requesting you to help your child decorate a shoe box to be used as their mailbox. Be creative, and let your child brainstorm the ideas that he/she would like their box to look like. We are going to display all these lovely mailboxes on Wednesday, February 14th for your child to deliver their valentine cards for their friends. This is a voluntary activity. However, if you decide to participate, the only request that we have is that the students should bring one card or treat to each one of the First Grade students. This mailbox should be in school on Monday, February 12th.
We have a total of 15 students! Here is the list….
Alejandro Contreras Hedy Rojas
Alejandro Palma Jurgen Krauter
Camila Reyes Liang Zhou
Camilo Moncada Nathan Agurcia
Joane Ochoa Santiago Paz
Daniella Howard Sofia Ponce
Gabriel Perdomo Valeria Cubas
