Let’s “Shine” Like The Universe Is Our Playground!!!

Let’s “Shine” Like The Universe Is Our Playground!!!

Dear Parents,

I would like to share with you the first day of Senior Kg. Shine. The students were welcomed to their new class with a small token of love (star) from our end. They settled into the class after performing their routines and procedures. They had fun playing the ice-breaking activity, which helped them to know their teacher, didi and friends better. Then, we discussed the routines and procedures for the class. They enjoyed their school meal and also had a gala time while painting.

As it’s truly said, time flies away when you’re having fun, and it passed by too quickly. We enjoyed the whole day and I look forward to getting to know and learn from your child!

Here’s a little sneak peak into our first day…

Regards,

Rashida Golwala

Bags There is a change in the  policy about school bags.  

Students from Nursery to Junior KG need to buy the prescribed school bag only. This bag will be available at School Zone. Details are as follows:

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/.

Details regarding the purchase of chromebook as been shared with you through blog post. A meeting was also held regarding the same

The first few days of school are when a child gets adjusted to her new classroom, classmates and teacher. Missing the first day creates a disconnect in the child.

Loss of uniform (shorts, t-shirts and shoes) will not be accepted as a reason for not wearing the complete uniform.
