September is upon us, but looking around you wouldn’t know it. With averages of 20 degrees celsius, we are seeing an unusual beginning to fall indeed. But who am I to complain? We have a couple of outdoor events planned for September, so the rainy fall weather can certainly stay away for a few more weeks at least.
Autumn Fair is around the corner, and the PTA is working busily to ensure that it remains the raging success that it has proven to be every year so far. Autumn Fair is a classic day to come out as a family, play some games, buy delicious treats, and spend time with friends. This year we will again have a number of great musical acts from performers across all grade levels, including vocal solos, selections for guitar, and a dance performance. You won’t want to miss this exciting festival!
We are also looking forward to our 3rd annual Brommaloppet! This race takes place on the 28th of September at Judarskogen and is comprised of two laps around a roughly 3.5km course, totaling 7km. There will be no regular classes that day, so the half day that they are not at the race they will have a class activity.
An in-service day has been scheduled for our staff members on Thursday, 29th of September. During this in-service day our staff will, amongst other things, go through CPR training and fire drills. The students will be assigned homework to work on during their “study at home” day.
And finally, school photos! School photos are this month on the 8th, 9th, and 12th for the students, with opportunities to take sibling and friend photos. Mark these days and remind your child to dress to impress! We also have startup talks early this month, so don’t forget to mark your calendars for the 12th and 13th of September. The class mentors will be contacting parents and guardians to set up a time to meet and get to know each other. Welcome!
