Elementary Update – November 8th
Sandy Sheppard, Elementary School Principal
Another busy week here in the Elementary School. We have been busy with professional development. This week we had Linda Henke working with our early years teachers/teaching assistants on Reggio Emilia and coming up over the next few days we have Adaptive Schools training. We all enjoy learning here at ISY.
Have a fabulous 4 day weekend.
Our first new Progress Reports will be going home on the 8th of November. Please see the attachment for a guide on the new reports.
Here is a guide on how to access the Progress Reports:
UWS SCHOOL COMPLETION
Parent conferences will take place all day on the 21st of November. Sign up will be available on the 14th of November on Powerschool. Meetings are 15 minutes long. They start at 9:00 am and finish at 5:30 PM.
Specialist teachers are available on that day in the Cafeteria for drop in meetings. However, our Art Teacher, Mr Batty and our PE Teacher, Mrs Johnson will only be available before 12 as they also have Senior School commitments. We look forward to seeing you all at the conferences.
We learnt so much in the assembly today run by Grade 5O. We learnt about parts of a book from 2S, Clouds from 3M and bird boxes and plants from 4E. 5O shared some of their writing. Well done everyone!
