Razkids will be accessible during the summer holiday. The new Razkids account will not start until your child is in grade 1. I encourage you to have your child use Razkids throughout the summer to keep their reading skills up.
Ronald and Olivia will be leaving SIS this year. We will miss them in grade 1 and wish them all the best in their new school.
Dear Kindergarten Parents,
The end of the year is coming soon! We are excited to have a party to celebrate our learning, our friends and to just have some fun! This party is for our kindergarten students only.
Children need to bring their swimming clothes in a separate bag, just as they did for swimming class.Water shoes or sandals are also encouraged on this day. We will have a picnic-style lunch after the party, so your child should bring a large towel to sit on. Please label your child’s name on everything.
We are asking parents to donate food for our potluck lunch. Your food dish should be enough for about 8-10 students. You can send the food in the morning with your child, or bring it to the secret garden between 11:30-11:45. Please sign up here for the potluck lunch: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0c4caead28a2fe3-kindergarten1

Please be reminded that Friday, June 8 will be a games day at school. Your child can bring in as many games as they want and we will have fun playing them. We will try very hard not to lose any of the pieces.
Yesterday, the children watched an egg break when dropped from the top of the stairs. This started their final design challenge. “What can you design to protect an egg from breaking when it is dropped?”
The children are using their scientific and engineering skills to solve this problem. They are working in small groups and following the ‘Design’ steps (Think, make a plan, make the design, improve it, share it-in this case, try it). Communication, collaboration and cooperation skills are also being emphasized.
First, the children thought about different ways to protect the egg. Some of their ideas were:
A water bottle
Metal/plastic ball with soft stuff inside
Box inside a box
Tissue inside a container
Cover it with paper
Cover it with bread
Next, they made a plan and included the tools they would need to make the design.
After that, they started to make their design.
Next, we will be trying out their engineering skills to see if their egg remains in tact when dropped. How exciting.
Next week will be out last week for our 8:00 reading program. I would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all the parents who have come in to help children with their reading.
It’s that time of year when we want to acknowledge how much work as parents you do for us. To show our appreciation you are invited to a parent appreciation breakfast. Please open the link below and sign up if you have been part of any parent volunteer activities at SIS this year (PSA, our morning reading time, field trips etc).
Thank you so much,
