Grade – 4 Night Out (16-12-2017)

Grade – 4 Night Out (16-12-2017)

Greetings Parents,

Grade 4 Night Out is on 16-12-2017 , ( Tomorrow) Please keep the following points in mind.

Note-

1- Students are expected to carry their Board Games  as we have scheduled some time for Indoor Games.

2- The students who have enrolled themselves for tents are expected to carry Sleeping Bags.

Concerns:

  1. Winters – It will be very cold, especially in the school area (where temperatures are 2-4 degrees lesser than the city) and so sleeping outdoors (in  assembly/skating rink) for children is difficult. (Nursery to G 4, students will sleep in assembly area (rendezvous), beyond grade 4 students will sleep in skating rink. If the temperature drops below 12 degree, even older students will sleep indoors)
  2. Mosquitoes – We take all possible steps to reduce the number of mosquitoes. However due to our location in the midst of lush green farms with stagnated water (as the crops are paddy & sugarcane) on all sides, we cannot eliminate the mosquito menace completely.
  1. Insects – At night in most months of the year there are lots of insects that are attracted towards artificial lighting. Our toilets are open at the top to allow for light and ventilation. Toilet lights have to remain switched ON from evening till night (so that students and adults can find it easily). This means that insects will get attracted to the lights inside the toilet and many of them will fall dead on the floor as well.

As mentioned, night out is as much about being close to nature therefore it is necessary that children sleep outdoors. Parents need to ensure that children are properly equipped with clothes and covers to handle the cold (and it is much more colder for the child compared to his/her regular bed). You must make sure the children are really well dressed and carry a good repellent cream as  we want them to have a memorable experience sleeping in the outdoors!

Regards,

Grade- 4 Team

Running Late

                     By-  Ken Nesbitt.

I overslept. I’m running late.

My mom is making such a fuss.

If I so much as hesitate

I probably will miss the bus.

I grab my socks and pant

and quickly pull on all my clothes.

I haven’t time to comb my hair

or brush my teeth or blow my nose.

I wolf my breakfast, kiss my mom,

and barrel madly out the door.

I’m feeling anything but calm.

I’ve never been this late before.

I run like crazy down the street.

I check my watch. It’s almost eight.

I wish I’d had some more to eat,

but, man, I simply can’t be late.

I barely make it there in time.

To miss the bus would not be cool.

I wouldn’t mind except that I’m

the guy who drives the kids to school.    https://www.poetry4kids.com/poems/running-late
