It is hard to believe that we are halfway through Term 1!
It is wonderful to see all of our P-2 students back to school full time. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our Prep families for their support of the Prep transition program at the beginning of this year. The transition program allowed our Prep students time to get to know each other and their teachers in a gradual and supportive way. It is wonderful to see our 1/2 students supporting our Preps in their transition also!
Start of the Day
We have a large number of students coming to school late in the morning. When students are late it has an impact on the morning routine for that homeroom. Homeroom doors open at 8:30am. Please ensure your child is in their homeroom at 8:30am to allow them time to get ready to learn for the day.
Prep - 2 Parent Teacher Conferences
Towards the end of this term we will be holding P-2 parent teacher conferences virtually via Webex. You will have the opportunity to book a 10 minute timeslot with your child’s teacher via COMPASS, to discuss how they have settled into the school year. More information will be sent out soon regarding the date and times.
It is wonderful to see so many of our Prep – 2 students reading each night. It is an expectation for all students in years prep, 1 and 2 to read each night. All reading satchels need to be returned to school each morning to ensure books are changed. It is also important for families to fill in the reading log each night so that homeroom teachers can monitor and celebrate home reading with their students.
Just a friendly reminder that hats are required for outside play and outside learning during term 1 and 4. Please ensure you provide a hat labelled with your child’s name and homeroom each day.
Please label all of your child’s items (clothing, hats, lunch boxes, drink bottles etc.) We have a number of items of clothing getting lost each day, having your child’s name clearly labelled on their belongings will ensure these items are returned to them safely.
ICT User agreement forms have been sent to families last week. Teachers use ICT tools as a valuable part of their teaching and learning programs and require permission to provide these tools for your children. Please ensure you sign this form and return it to your child’s homeroom teacher. If you have any questions regarding the use of ICT as a learning tool in your child’s homeroom, please contact their homeroom teacher directly.
