Important Instructions for the Goal Setting week

Dear Parents,

We were very happy to meet you for the 1st Parent Teacher Meeting of the academic year-2015-16. Now we are on the threshold of the next important event in your ward’s life.The goal-setting exercise is the year’s first one on one meeting between the parents, the teachers and the students.

This meeting is used to build a rapport between the parents and the teacher, as well as to jointly discuss and decide upon important areas to work upon for the student. Goals are often such that require work from both parents at home and the teachers in school. Being an important exercise, we hope to see all of you there.

However, as you might be aware that space in school for parking for cars of parents is a big bottleneck and we understand that we cannot resolve in the near future.Therefore we have to move to a system where we have to spread out these activities over a few days instead of just one day.

We will have the goal setting exercise from 2nd of July and to facilitate smooth parking, this time Goal setting exercise of one grade will be held on one day. Refer to the schedule given below :

Date Day Grades Which grades are working on this day?
2 July 2015 Thursday Grade 6 All except Grade 6
3 July 2015 Friday Middle Years (Grades 7-10) All except Grades 7-10
6 July 2015 Monday Grade 5 All except Grade 5
7 July 2015 Tuesday Grade 4 All except Grade 4
8 July 2015 Wednesday Grade 3 All except Grade 3
9 July 2015 Thursday Grade2 All except Grade 2
10 July 2015 Friday Grade 1 All except Grade 1
11 July 2015 Saturday Nu, Jr.KG,Sr.KG None

Timings on each day: 7:40 a.m. to 3:20 p.m., only 15 minute slots, with 5 minutes for transition.

There will be 20 slots in the day to cater to all the students. Since you will have the option of booking your own slots through Google Calendar appointment slots and hangout option (click here for instructions on how to book your slots) we hope both parents will attend the meeting (virtually or physically).

To ensure that there is no parking issue and the event goes on smoothly, you are advised to complete the goal setting exercise in the allotted 15 mins and leave school so that we have no parking bottleneck.

Also, please take note of the following:

  1. Since the rest of the school will be working, school buses carrying the children will be going in and out of the school. The slots have been planned such that there are minimum clashes between the parents cars and the buses; however around 8:50, 10:10, 2:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. the movement of the cars will be restricted to ensure as the buses need to be given priority. Cars wanting to come in or leave at that time may need to wait for a few minutes. Please cooperate with us on this.
  2. Please follow the security staff instructions for the parking of your cars as there are 3 different parking locations based on the slot timings.
  3. Pantry will not remain open for parents on these days & pantry coupons will not be sold on these days.
  4. Single subject teachers (Arts, PE, Hindi & Gujarati) will not be available as they will be taking classes of other grades. So please do not wait for them. You can meet them during Open house days or communicate with them through the daily diary.
  5. Since we would like you to go back in as short a time as possible, we would prefer that you handle all regular administrative issues through emails / phone.
  6. All PTCs / SLCs during the year will follow the above model. The calendar sent to you already has the weeks marked for this.
  7. School will work on pre-decided Saturdays to ensure no working day is lost from our standard calendar. In this case, everyone except the Middle Years will work on 4th July to make up for the working day lost.

We request each one of you to cooperate and follow the above instructions. In case of siblings with slots on different days, you can explore the option of Google Hangout. We hope that you will attend the Goal-setting meetings.

Looking forward to a productive and enriching year ahead,

Thanking you,

Fountainhead school.

Dear Parents,

Here is an update of what we did last week.

1) All the three worksheets of number system were cross-checked and discussed with students.

2) Then in a group of four, students played the game of number system cards (Matching and finding a pair having the most appropriate classification of numbers, for eg. when a pair is picked up by a student and if both numbers are rational numbers then he/she wins the pair). Students really enjoyed the activity.

3) Then we started with a new unit ‘Integers, Powers & Roots’ wherein we introduced Integers and its real life application.

4) Students also learnt about different operations like adding & subtracting integers with and without number line and they also did few sums from their textbooks.

5) Exercise 8.1 A and B were given to them as homework.
