Thank you for the great turn out at the Back to School event this week. We appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedules to join us. A good home and school connection is so important for student learning. We want to continue to ensure positive relationships and opportunities to connect with all our families.

The Kelso Choice Wheel
We support our students at recess time by encouraging them to use KELSO Choices.
Monday is a holiday, we will see you back at school on Tuesday the 3rd of September.

Lost property has been relocated to shelving in the school basement level. It can be accessed through the middle steps in Block A. Daily lost property is kept in a container outside the ES Office for one day before being moved.
This year the Elementary School will report student progress each quarter as follows:
Quarter 1 – progress reports/parent conferences
Quarter 2 – report cards
Quarter 3 – progress reports/parent conferences
Quarter 4 – report cards/student led conferences
We hope you find the frequent communication on student progress informative.

Next week will be our last full week of school. There will be slides up until Thursday. On Friday the 5th of June there will be no slides, the teams will have conferencing type activities planned, they will communicate these to you. Report cards will go home on Thursday the 4th of June.
Thank you to all those who attended the parent meeting last night hosted by Dr Hedger. There is a lot of planning going on at the moment and as mentioned later in June you will be able to view more information on what the new school year might look like.
Another week of virtual learning fun and experiences is over. We love keeping the learning connections with our students. Our teachers are working very hard to ensure that your children have access to the best learning virtually that we can possibly give them.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey this week. The feedback you provide is so important to us. An email will be sent out soon that will summarize the feedback given.
See this weeks blog for a recording of the virtual coffee morning meeting.
I hope everyone received their child/ren progress reports and that you had the opportunity to meet with your child’s class teacher. This was a wonderful opportunity to remain connected.
