EMASI Summer School Diary – Week 2
Dear Parents and Guardians,
We have closed our second week of Summer School.
This week, we see some of the children starting to settle on a routine. We would like to share some updates with you.
- All children are beginning to settle into the school routine. Mondays are still harder for young children to say goodbye to parents, but everyone is now familiar with their class and their teacher’s routine.
- Lunchtime is getting more focused, children are getting used to trying everything even if new dishes are served. Next week, we will focus on decreasing food waste.
- We conducted a successful school-wide fire evacuation drill. On the weekend, as you go out as a family, try to talk to ask your children if they can spot fire exits in public places.
- The first swimming lessons started this week. This was a very exciting and enjoyable time for all students that had swimming this week.
- This week during art classes, secondary students showcased their different learning styles and skills in visual art. Young age elementary students created art projects to develop their fine motor skills in hand, fingers and eye coordination which is essential in reading. For older age elementary students they created art projects to enhance their skills in recognizing patterns which is essential in mathematics. In the Kindergarten class, they decorated their own plant pots and plant their own seeds on it. Kindergarten students are happy for this experience.
- The highlight of the week for the kids is the outing trip. Kindergarten children had a super fun morning in the snow & riding down the slope. Grade school children spent the day at Sunny Farm getting down to work and their hands dirty. Everyone got to work with plants, learn about growing vegetables and feed the animals. Secondary students created their own mini garden at the farm. Everyone worked out a good sweat at the farm!
- All lessons in summer school are compulsory, including swimming. The swimming coaches handle all levels and no student will be pushed beyond their limit. Students will be exempt from swim class only with a medical note.
- Elementary School children are not allowed to bring phones or tablets to school. Secondary students may use their devices only at rest times or as designated by teachers. Any devices used outside this policy will be confiscated and returned at the end of the day.
- Students are not allowed to eat outside candy, cakes, crisps during the school day as snacks are provided.
Wishing everyone a well-deserved rest.
