Junior Prep Notices 25 November 2016

dsc_1529Grade Four Information Morning: The Grade Three parents are invited to attend a Grade Four Information Morning from 07:30 – 08:30 on Tuesday, 29 November in the Media Centre. Mr Kunene will be discussing the transition from the Foundation to the Intermediate Phase, as well as what can be expected from a Senior Prep child. The Grade Three children will be spending the morning with the Grade Four teachers and will return to their classes after break.

Celebration of Me: This will take place on Wednesday, 30 November at 18:30. Attendance is compulsory for children in Grades One, Two and Three. At this function, every child receives a certificate celebrating his/her unique being and the children entertain their audience with a year-end presentation. Children should meet in their classrooms at 18:00 dressed in their correct uniforms – Grayston shorts and golf shirt, white ankle socks and black tackies.

Owing to a lack of space in the hall, we are only able to invite the parents of our Junior Prep children. We are, regrettably, unable to accommodate grandparents and siblings. For your convenience, we will be providing a childcare service for siblings (older and younger) in the Media Centre that evening should you not be able to make other arrangements. Please complete the reply slip that was sent home, indicating whether or not you will be making use of this facility. 

2017 Stationery: The stationery boxes of those children that have placed their orders will be handed out to the Grade 3 children going into Grade 4 next year on Monday 28 November 2016.

Report Cards: End of year report cards will be issued to the children on Wednesday, 7 December 2016.

Interhouse Galas: Parents are invited to attend the interhouse swimming galas as follows next week: Grades 3 – 7 on Thursday, 1 December at 09:00 and Grades 1 & 2 on Friday, 2 December. The gala on Thursday will probably end at about school closing and children whose parents are not present will be cared for until 13:20. The gala on Friday morning will last approximately an hour whereafter children will return to class for the rest of the day. Please ensure that children have their swimming costumes and caps with them as they will all be participating.

Let the Grade 7 children Wait On You: Please join the Grade 7s at the Spur for their Outreach Fundraising Event. Bring your family along to the Morningside Glen Spur and enjoy a meal with our Grade 7 waiters. All proceeds from each meal will be donated to the school which in turn will be used by by the Outreach Committee for the number of schools we support. Because this evening is so popular, please try and let as many families eat between 18:00 and 20:30 as possible (only these bills count towards the fund-raising). Your support would be greatly appreciated.
