to a new school year! This year will be full of learning and laughter,
challenges and change. Our hope is that your child works to their fullest
potential and acquire the skills to be able to communicate, understand, read,
and write in both Chinese and English. Even in a month’s time, you will
be amazed at how much language your child has learned and how much academic and
personal growth will have taken place.
Teachers work hard every day to personalize
learning for each child, but also design tasks that are engaging, meaningful,
and relevant. As partners in educating students, we ask parents to
support your child in these ways:
- Ensure that your
child gets plenty of sleep at night. This means an early bedtime,
especially for those students who need to get up early to catch the bus or
attend Kids Come First.
- Have a quiet place
for your child to do homework and to do nightly reading.
- Have a consistent
routine in place (i.e. a set time that homework is always done; a set time for
home reading; a set time bed time)
- Pack a healthy snack
and lunch every day. Remember that as the school year progresses; your
child’s appetite grows as they physically grow, so you will need to pack more
- If you drop your
child off, it is important to drop them off on time. It is good for your
child to be part of the classroom’s daily routine from the very beginning of
the day. It also ensures that they will not be missing any important
activities or lessons.
the coming days and weeks, a lot of important information will be sent to you
via email, D2L, or in your child’s agenda bag. Please make it a habit to
check all three on a daily basis.
Looking forward to a fantastic school year!
