International Week

Dear Parents,

The Primary school will be having international week activities from January 20th until January 24th 2019. Our class will be learning about Ghana and its culture, people, food...etc.

On Thursday January 24th, students are asked to dress in their own national costume, or any other international dress. You can send the coloured t-shirt and jeans for assembly in a bag if your child dresses up in traditional clothes.

Students are asked to share a traditional food dish with plates and coultry from their country or any other country of your choice. Please note no cupcakes, donuts, chips or popcorn are allowed only traditional dishes from a country of your choice. There is no need for the school bag this day, only their lunch box and water.

Please note this event is for students only.

We appreciate your cooperation and your support to help make this unit informative and fun!

Any questions, please contact me!

Year 2-8 GHANA

Kindly note that 2-8 will not be performing in the International Week Assembly. We are so proud of trying our best! It's going to be fun to watch the assembly as audience. We will sing, laugh, and cheer!

Please have your child dress up in traditional clothes of a country of their choice or colours of the flag.

*** This assembly is only for students. Due to limited space, parents will not be invited.

*** Pictures will be taken and posted on Google Sites.

Dear parents,

Many students would love to use headphones to listen to stories and other sounds when we have our chromebook time. If possible, please send a personal headphone for your own child.

  • Label the headphone with your child's name.
  • Headphones will stay in your child's backpack.
  • Cheap headphones are recommended since they might get damaged or lost.
  • For hygienic reasons, sharing headphones is not recommended.

Thank you for those who already sent headphones with your kids. They are truly enjoying chromebook time!

Floor Pillows

A gentle reminder.. We would love to have more floor pillows that kids can use as an option for flexible seating. Plus, it is fun!

This will add to your child's sense of belonging in the classroom. Kids are encouraged to choose a cushion they like, if possible.

Thank you for following up :)

Our House Teams

2-8 House Colours Nov. 2018.pdf

Students love house teams. Please explain to your children that we do this for fun!

We encourage children to wear their house-colored shirts on Wednesdays.

If your child does not have the school shirt, he/she may wear a plain one - no pictures or logo, please. I reward students with a House Point if they do so!

Meet the Teacher

Dear parents,

Year 2-8 Schedule

TT 2018-2019 2-8 Rola

Hello, my name is Rola and I come from Lebanon. This is my 5th year as a Year 2 at EMS. I am looking forward to another year full of new discoveries. Your children bring so much to this class and I'd love to learn more about them!

There is so much to be excited about this year. Some of the concepts we will tackle in year 2 are living and non-living, addition and subtraction, creative writing, reading habits and word study. One of my favourite things to teach is reading using the Workshop model!

We will do many interesting writing activities that go along with the stories we read in class.

I believe that students shine when they try their best. Teaching is my pleasure :)

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I want to partner with you in order to best support your child.

You can simply reach me at rola.soufi@emsdoha.net for quick answers or you may set an appointment through the secretary for more detailed inquiries.
