Welcome Back to the 2nd Half!

Dear Moms & Dads!

I’m very pleased to finally be able to officially write a hearty “Welcome Back to School!”  As you are probably already aware, we have received permission from the Ministry of Education and so we can finally begin the second half of the Autumn Term here at GIS.  The entire teaching staff have been into school every day since last week, but  I look forward to seeing each and every one of you guys tomorrow morning cause we’ve missed the kids very much!  It is definitely going to be a busy few weeks coming up as we make our way to the end of the Term 1 and the holiday season.

I would like to remind you to please also check with your child if they have any other important letters to give you in the coming weeks – as this is particularly relevant this time of the year as we have so many events  coming up that they are taking part in and for which they may need their PE kits on special days or return slips for participation confirmation in special events.  Thank You.

Make sure and be on the look out for a special envelope coming home with your child towards the end of the term as it is nearly that time of year when we start preparing progress reports for your little ones.  the reports for Year 1 are a short summary to keep you informed about how your child is progressing so far this year.  After you have received your reports, you will be able to discuss this further at “Parents Evenings” should you have any questions or concerns you would like to discuss.

KS1 Christmas Show

All of the teachers here in KS1 having been working hard and we are currently preparing to hit the ground running tomorrow in regards to our upcoming Christmas Show.  There will be lots of rehearsals and practices planned during the weeks ahead and you will be informed shortly if your child has any speaking parts to memorize for their prospective parts in the show.  I have also posted all the songs we will be working on in the show over at our new First School Youtube page, so please go visit and practice at home if you have some time to spare in the coming weeks.

Bangkok Flood and GIS

Finally, I have heard from some of you guys and I know that you have been personally affected in some way by the tragic floods that have affected Thailand over the past month.  I would like to request that you contact me and let me know should you be unable to return to school regularly at this time, so we can make sure everyone is still safe and sound.  Also, I can continue to provide daily updates with class material over at our page to keep your child abreast with the material we will be cover in the 2nd half of Term 1.  Please stay safe in the coming weeks and I will endeavor to update our Year 1 page here in case anything changes in regards to the situation her at GIS.

So in closing…keep your eye on the page here regularly and I will see most of you guys tomorrow morning!
