Dear Parents,

Greetings! Welcome back from what I’m sure was a wonderful summer vacation. We all are delighted to be given the opportunity to work with your children again. Our ranks have been joined by several new (and very professional) staff members as well as a wonderful returning stalwart.

Let me introduce them to you:

  • Mrs. Chang – 4th grade
  • Mrs. Owens – 6th grade LA/SS and 7th grade Bible
  • Mrs. Cagwin – 7th grade LA / 6th grade SS and 7th grade Bible  
  • Mr. Lima – Library Assistant
  • Mr. Owens – EMS Chaplain Coordinator / PE Assistant
  • Miss Neff – 2nd grade math / Lunchroom Monitor

Also, I want to extend a hearty welcome to all our new Kindergarten parents and other new families. We enjoy seeing new faces and sincerely hope you’ll find our school a warm and caring environment.

On Thursday I’ll be sharing more about our school theme in chapel. We’re concluding our trilogy on wisdom with a focus on Heart to Hands this year. This topic essentially deals with how we live our lives, the practices we engage in and the habits we form. We eagerly anticipate your participation as we partner in this important area of your children’s character formation.

On a final note, please note that our EMS teachers (with the exception of Kindergarten) will be administering the battery of MAP standardized tests over the next two weeks. For best results, please make sure students get sufficient rest, have a nutritious diet and drink enough water. These assessments serve as beginning-of-year data that will help guide teachers’ instruction. We’ll share data as it becomes available.
Hope to see you on Friday at the Parent Tea.

Blessings,
Mr. Myburgh

另外,我想對所有新的幼稚園家長和其他新家庭表示衷心的歡迎,我們喜歡看到新面孔,且真心希望你們能感受到我們學校是一個充滿溫暖和關愛的環境。
本週四的聚會禮拜我將分享更多學校今年的主題,我們將以智慧結束我們的三部曲,並將今年的重點放在「心到手」。這主題涉及到我們如何過我們的生活、我們所做的事以及我們所養成的習慣,我們熱切期望與您孩子人格的養成這個重要一環的合作關係。

請您特別注意我們的中小學老師(幼稚園除外)將在接下來的兩週內進行一連串的MAP標準化測驗,為了獲得最佳效果,請確保學生充分休息、營養豐富、飲用足夠的水。這些評估作為學期初步數據,將有助於老師的指導。我們會在數據可用時與您公布。
希望在星期五的家長茶會與您相見。

STUDENT ABSENCES 學生缺席須知
Parents, please be sure to notify the office when your child has a planned absence. Our student handbook states that requests to be absent are to be made to the school principal in writing or by telephone 10 days before the absence occurs. This procedure gives opportunity for the school to reflect to the parents the possible effects of the absence and/or together make some alternative study arrangements. If you have any questions, please talk to Mrs. Sawatzky or Mrs. Edwards in the office.
親愛的家長,請務必通知辦公室如果貴子弟將要請假。我們學生手冊有註明如果學生要請假,需要十天前以書面方式通知校長或是亦電話通知。這個程序給學校提供機會,向父母反映缺席可能影響和/或一起作出一些替代性的學習安排。 如果您有任何問題,請與辦公室Mrs. Sawatzky or Mrs. Edwards 聯繫。
