Glimpses of first few days

Glimpses of first few days

Dear parents,

Theeeeeeeey’re back — those first few days of school where teachers are all exhilarated about being in the class to roll out the red carpet for the little angels.

The first few days have been thrilling and fun with the kiddos. Starting from settling them to listening to their innocent and humorous talk has been a sweet experience. It has been an eventful week for the children. It all started with a beautiful welcome where children were given colored badges representing their section as a part of identification.

 

The teachers warmly welcomed the students with a wide smile, role modelled all the routines and procedures and acquainted them with directions to washroom, play areas and their classes. They were also guided about showing reverence towards their peers and adults and things around; keeping the plates gently in the trolley after lunch; keeping their bags and bottles at the allocated areas.

 

The students also embraced read alouds and various interesting rhymes. They were guided to their buses with the teachers as well as the class didis. As it is truly said, “Time flies away when you’re having fun!”, and it passed by too quickly. The first two weeks were a delightful experience with the little ones.

 

Sharing a few glimpses of the days gone by.

With gratitude,

Jr.KG Team

  • Please do not call at Front desk requesting entry in school incase you are late.

Grade Size Rate INR
Nur to Sr. Kg. Small 580/-

From Grade 1 onwards, students can buy bags as per their requirement/ choice. They can also choose to buy the bag available at School Zone (medium sized one)   if they wish to..

Please follow the guidelines below in case you are choosing a bag of your choice:

  • It should be big enough to carry a folder
  • Separate compartments for tiffin box, water bottle etc is preferable
  • Bag can be of any color. We  strongly recommend to avoid stereotypical colors (pink/ purple  for girls, blue / gray for boys) while choosing a bag
  • Trolley bags are not allowed.
  • Bag with characters like chota bheem, mickey mouse, Dora, Elsa, Spiderman, Barbie, Peppa pig, Doraemon, Hello Kitty, Motu Patlu, Minions or any other character are strictly not allowed. The reason for doing so is to minimize media influence on the child.

Despite these constraints, we assure you that you will get plenty of smart bag options in the market and we encourage you to pick up the same.

Shoes – Students can wear shoes of any brand, provided they are completely or predominantly black. Socks should also be predominantly black. Shoes and socks can be purchased from any vendor of your choice.

  1. I-Card / Parent Card:

Each parent will be issued one I-card and two Parent cards for next academic session. No bearer card will be issued.

I-cards:

It is compulsory for all students to wear the I-card till June 30th after which the I-card must be kept in the bag at all times. Any student not wearing the I-card will not be allowed to board the bus. The  I-Card is also required for issuing books from the library.

Parent card:

We will be issuing 2 parent RFID cards (RFID – Radio Frequency Identification) to each parent for the next academic session. The Parent RFID Card will be used for the following purposes:

  1. Picking up the student from the bus stop during the drop off route.
  2. Picking up the student, while he/she is returning from nature camp, field trips, etc.
  3. Picking up the student directly from school (any person coming to pick the student has to bring the Parent RFID Card
  4. Present it as identification whenever visiting the school for any purpose.

This card will be registered in the school records in your child’s name and will be non-transferable. In case the parent card is not shown, even if you are a parent, the student will not be handed over to you. The same applies when you come to pick the child from the school. In case of any error or changes required in the I-card / Parent-card, please report to the Front Desk for rectification. This could take up to 5 working days.

  1. Transportation:

You can log on to the given link http://www.fountainheadschools.org/connect-with-us/helpdesk/ to view stop and timings after 10th May 2018.  During the first few days of school, transport schedule and routes can be a little off track as students are still adjusting to the new schedules. Further, because of rains from June to August there may be a delay in timings. Therefore, we hope for full cooperation from you during this period, till the schedule is settled.

  1. Chromebook: Every student of Grade 5 and above is expected to purchase a Google Chromebook from the next academic session. For more details please refer to the given link http://www.fountainheadschools.org/tech-fs/chromebook/.
