A Message from Ibu Leslie
Dear Green School Community,
As I mentioned in my last Newsletter article, we will have assemblies every other week this term. The next upcoming assemblies are: Jan 26th, Feb 9th, and Feb 23rd. Keep your eye on the newsletter for more updates on these as well. We are happy to consider context for the assemblies from our community. So please feel free to email email@example.com with your ideas.
However, on the days that we don’t have assembly, we encourage parents to come and hang out and get to know each other in the warung area. We will pump some tunes out of the Sangkep and enjoy each others company.
Hope you are staying dry.
