Nucleus App Update – Diary

Nucleus App Update – Diary

Dear parent,

As informed in the 1st PTM , DIARY feature in Nucleus App is now available. As a pilot, this year we will be using this feature in 3 grades across PYP which are Sr.KG, Grade 2 and Grade 3. Henceforth, the parents of these 3 grades are requested to use Diary feature of Nucleus App to communicate with any of the teachers and not use the Daily Diary.

Apart from the app installed on cell phones/ Tablet/ Ipads; you can also use Nucleus feature on web interface by following the given steps:

    • Ensure that you’ve added the parent email ID given by school on the device you want to use.

 

  • On the web page simply write parents.fountainheadschools.org and you’ll be directed to log in page.

 

  • You need to log in through the  parent email ID.
  • Click on ‘‘Diary”.
  • Click on – Add user.
  • Search for the respective teacher and select the option ‘Start chat’.

Please note this medium is only for one to one communication between the teacher and the parent. For other communications, you may email your query to Surat@fountainheadschools.org. For transport related queries like transport routes, address change, etc. you can whats app on: 8980000451

You are requested to explore this feature on the App installed on your device or through web interface. As such this feature is quite user friendly and works similar to Whatsapp on our phones.

In case of further queries or issues related to Nucleus you may write to – Nandini.Aswani@fountainheadschools.org

PS: The parents  who are yet to install this app are requested to do it right away.  Nucleus Fountainhead is the name of the app which is available on Android and iOS.

Circle Time:

Revision of Rhymes:

  1. Good morning dear Earth
  2. Each like a petal, of one great flower

 

Introduction of new rhymes:

  1.  The north wind came along one day,

So strong and full of fun;

He called the leaves down from the trees

And said, “Run children run”.

They came in red and yellow dress,

In shaded green and brown,

And all the short December day

He chased them round the town.

They ran in crowds, they ran alone,

They hid behind the trees,

The north winds laughing found them there

And called “No stopping please”

But when he saw them tired out

And huddled in a heap,

He softly said, “Goodnight my dears,

Now let us go to sleep.”

– Steiner verse

2.

Little golden leaves,

Dancing on the trees.

Down the wind blows,

A leaf for me.

Little golden leaves,

Dancing in the sun,

Falling from the treetops,

One by one.

Little golden leaves,

Dancing to and fro,

Backwards and forwards,

And off they go.

  • Steiner verse

Raconteur Calling!

Dear Raconteurs,

We thank each one of you for sharing your thoughts, feelings and ideas and making our school magazine a literary piece of art! A loud shout out to all who made it possible!

Our ideas keep changing, developing and modifying with each passing moment and we don’t want any of these to just drift by.

So let’s get going! We want to ensure that parents and students get optimum time to write for their favorite magazine. However, as mentioned in the previous blog post, we have quite a few precious pieces left with us which we are planning to take up in the April issue. So, the number of days for submission and the number of topics have been reduced for this time.

We have shortlisted a few topics to give you a starting point, but you are free to write on any topic of your choice. You can choose to compose a poem, write an article or create a poster/artwork. Parent articles are welcome in Hindi/Gujarati as well. (No hard copies will be accepted)

The topics are:

 

  • Planning a Vacation
  • If I could be a/an …..
  • My Promises To the New Year

  • We will not be publishing more than 1 article/poem per student/parent.
  • Do not share articles published earlier on personal blogs.
  • We request parents to send original work done by their child as we want to keep the essence of  thoughts that play in a child’s mind. Parents can check their child’s work, in terms of spellings and grammar but please retain the words used by your child.
  • In case of parent article, mention your full name, child’s name, grade and section at the end of the article.
