The law states “that one can only, once a year get permission to get 10 days off. If you choose to use 1 day or 10 days, that’s the only chance you can have for the entire year” The 10 days can not be added on to the Christmas break or the July break or the Easter break. The reason for 10 days should have a valid reason and if possible proof for that reason.
The law states “that once a child turns four they are allowed to enter kindergarten the month following their birthday.

Students that misbehave constantly on the bus will lose the privilege of traveling on the bus. Parents, you will have to take care of the transportation.

Each school makes and takes important decisions. The MR speaks on behalf of both parents and staff and takes in a position with respect to what the administration/school Board does. One of the main tools of the MR is the right to consent and the right to give advice. We are committed to working closely with the school management and parents. Through the MR, parents and teachers can have a say in decisions that affect the school. The MR is trying to promote an atmosphere of openness and democracy, so that all those involved are aware what is happening . Read more

On Valentine’s Day, the students in Teacher Helen’s class made a Valentine Shake. Some followed the Valentine Visual Recipe and others the Written Recipe.
They used a blender, measuring cup, and an ice cream scoop. The following ingredients were used: milk, ice cream, and strawberries. By using both recipes it allows the flexibility to complete the activity with students who have varying skill levels.
They learned vocabulary such as blender, milk, measuring cup, lid, ice cream scoop and much more. After the students enjoy their delicious Valentine Shake, they had to complete either visual questions or written questions on comprehension skills.
The fifth & sixth graders worked on fraction problems. The students enjoyed the lesson. It was a Happy Valentine Lesson.
