January arrived with snow and cold, with that, also lighter mornings. Not only did we get a feel of the cold, we also got new staff in the building.
Ms. Sofia Kinberg joined us mid January as the new Assistant Principal of Senior School and have started with a busy schedule. Days have been filled with introductions and meetings, from all staff to all the students. Please read the presentation from Ms Sofia Kinberg at the end of the newsletter.
We also have some new teachers, Mr. Lopez, who will be teaching grade 8 English, Ms. Jacobsson who has taken over French for Ms. Vukovic who is now enjoying retirement.
Ms. Baillet is covering for Ms. Furbacken while she is away on maternity leave.
We also got informed we would have The Swedish Schools Inspectorate (Skolinspektionen) at the school sometime in February, but this was then moved to April 27th. The results from the survey have all gone out as well and we thank you for answering the questions so we can make improvements where needed.
The student’s academic status have been discussed during the Development talks and we can go forward with plans for improvement and progress. The talks is a continuation from the start-up talks last term and now we add more information about the development of your child and what is needed to improve in some of them.
9th grade students can now do their first choices for gymnasium, the enrollment is open until the 15th of February and will then open up again in April.
February is closing in rapidly and with that the National Tests. But more about those in the next monthly letter!
