After a week of PD, I can’t tell you how happy we were to fill the high school with your kids and the receive the rush of enthusiasm for being back. Very quickly students starting bonding with new and old friends. Today was a great reminder of how kind and outgoing our kids are. Below are some things to be aware of this week.
(1) Please consider discussing the course options for block 1 with your child. They are available on moodle now.
(2) Students took a math diagnostic today to help inform us on best matches within our math program. Included here are the links for those that either did not finish or are not back yet http://bit.ly/algebragreenschool http://bit.ly/geometrygreenschool
(3) This week we will have some off campus activities. Thursday bring a swimsuit and towel. We will run a simple swim activity to determine swim levels. This is important to know for the many of the programs that we run over the course of the year. Friday, Aug 10 Grade 9/10 will go rafting on the Ayung with outfit Bali Raft. Bring clothes that can get wet and an extra change. Grade 11/12 will go to the Bedugal to hike Mount Tapak Hike and have a picnic in the Botanical Gardens. This will require sporty attire and sturdy sneakers, but also a sweatshirt or long sleeve (It will be chilly up there). A permission slip went home with your child on Wednesday to be signed and returned for Thursday.
(4) Friday morning we will have Hindu blessing for the start of the school year. Please come dressed for ceremony. Ibu Kadek will be set up tomorrow afternoon selling ceremony clothes in Heart of School.
While it is an exciting time, the beginning of the year is always a flurry of new information. There is a lot to process. Your patience and open communication helps us toward success.
