A very warm welcome to the new academic session 2018-19.
With lots of enthusiasm, we welcome the children back to school! The transition from Early years to Primary Years might be a little challenging for you as well as the children because of the change in timings. But, I’m sure the children will get habituated within a few days and will look forward to waking up early in the morning and coming to the school. We will do our best to ensure the transition is as seamless as possible and to ensure that each child feels loved, respected and safe.
Our mission for Grade 1 learners is ‘To nurture socio-emotional and cognitive development through positive guidance and interactions.’
With this mission in mind , we promise to provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment which will help learners to develop within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes, skills and creative thinking and learning.
We’ll be sharing the curriculum details with you through school website. We’ll also keep you updated about the daily routine through the blog posts. In case of further queries you can contact me or your child’s homeroom teacher. We request for communication only through daily diary.
We hope that you are aware of all the school policies and that you will also follow them earnestly. We expect all the parents to attend the events where parental involvement is required like PTM, SLC, Sports day, Annual day or any other specific event. Do encourage and motivate your child to complete his/her Homework and submit it on time. As we always say and believe that teachers and parents together can nurture a child. So let’s come together and be role models for our children and facilitate their overall growth.
With this note, I am happy to introduce you to the Grade 1 team.
