Elementary School Weekly Update 22 February 2019
Posted 22-02-2019 03:39PM

Dear Parents,

Thanks to all of you who volunteered yesterday for International Mother Language Day. We had an amazing array of languages on display and the students certainly enjoyed learning more about the languages being spoken in our community. Events such as these celebrate a major reason why our school is so special, diversity.

Yesterday we had a parent education session with Matt Glover on composition and conventions in writing. It was recorded for those parents who were unable to attend and we will upload this to the ES Portal on Monday.

Student Led Conferences

On March 7th, 2019 the Elementary School will hold Student-Led Conferences. This is not a normal school day. There will be no classes and students should ONLY come to school for their scheduled conference time, returning home afterwards with their parents.  All students and parents are expected to attend Student Led Conferences. More detailed information on SLC's can be found on the ES Portal. To sign up for your child's conference you will need to follow the instructions below: 

Thur, Feb 21- 22:  Parents with two or more elementary age children can pre-book SLC conference times by calling the ES Office 087 809 1804/087 809 1871. This helps to ensure back to back conference times. 

Mon, Feb 25- Mar 5:  All ES parents will be able to sign up for a SLC time through PowerSchool (see the conference button on the left hand side of the home page once logged in). 

Festival of Running

PK/Kindergarten Assembly- February 28th @ 8am

Next Thursday, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten will be showcasing their learning. All parents are welcome to attend.

AISJ offers a holiday program that runs in the June/July holidays.  This program runs for 3 weeks from June 3rd to June 21st.  You can do 1, 2 or all 3 weeks.  It is a wonderful place to send your child should you not be leaving South Africa straight after school closes for the June/July break.  The program starts at 09:00am and finishes at 1:00pm each day and the cost includes door to door bussing, engaging workshops, all supplies, snacks and a field trip each Friday which includes packed refreshments.  This year the field trips will be Bounce, The Monte Casino Bird Gardens and Ice-skating (Gr. 1 and up) and PlayScapes (Pre-k and kinder). 

To register your child/ren, please log onto Powerschool and click on forms/signups, this will take you to the Johannesburg Campus Winter School Request form.  Please note that registration starts in February and runs until May 24th.  Closer to the start of Winter School you will receive an information letter regarding the program.

Please contact Nikki Kaplan, in Middle School, by emailing her on nkaplan@aisj-jhb.com should you require any further details or have any questions.
