As the end of the term draws near, I would like to extend my compliments of the season to all.
Please make note of the following information and events during these final weeks of school:
Christmas gifts for the needy
As we think of those who are not as fortunate as we are, we prepare items to donate to a local orphanage / alternative school. This year, instead of children exchanging gifts within school, teachers will organise the wrapping of gifts (school supplies) in classes to be donated to children from Terres Rouges and Nu Dagbé. The suggested purchase amount for gifts is 5,000 fcfa. Each class teacher will give instructions as to how this will be handled.
Early Years teachers will send information out regarding their different arrangement and the visit from Father Christmas.
Reports and Child Progress Conferences
Reports will go out on Friday, 6th December and Child Progress Conferences will be held during the week of 9th December. Teachers will send out appointment times for these meetings.
Christmas Concert & Performances – Tuesday, 10th December on the Upper School Roof
The Lower School performance will be in the morning at 8:30 a.m.
Middle School will hold their performance in the evening at 6:00 p.m.
The running time of each performance will be one hour.
I would like to remind you of the open invitation to call in for an appointment with your child’s teacher or with me if you wish to discuss your child’s programme or have queries of any nature. You may seek assistance from the school secretary to make such appointments or use homework agendas for scheduling directly with teachers.
We appreciate your consideration of teachers’ busy work schedules and the necessity for them to remain attentive to pupils’ needs during school hours. In the Lower School, we have arranged for assistants to welcome your child at the gate so that teachers may give their full attention to their pupils and the classroom set-up for the day.
Last (Half) Day of Term – Friday, 13th December
School will end promptly at 12:00 noon for all E.I.S. children on this day. A pizza treat will be provided for all during the half-day. The new school term will begin on Monday, 6th January 2020.
Thank you for your cooperation.
