"The time to be awesome is now!"

Dear parents,

Many students would love to use headphones to listen to stories and other sounds when we have our chrome-book 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 chrome-book time! Please keep the headphone in your child's school bag.

After School Activities - ASAs Term 1

Dear parents,

Please talk to your child about available ASAs for this term and make sure they are aware of the club they are registered in. Refer to the document below to find your child's assigned ASA and relevant details.

  • Year 2 activities run on Mondays and Tuesdays. Students have to go the assigned class when after dismissal time - around 1.45.
  • All the ASAs for Year 2 will be taking place on the Year 2 floor. ASAs start at 1.50 and end at 2.45.
  • When dismissed, students will be waiting in the area in front of the admin building until 2:55. After that time, late students will be sent to the room by Gate 2.

The list will be updated as more names are added. Kindly ignore this post if your child will not attend any ASA this term.

ASAs T1 Y2-8

Kindly note that student usernames and passwords for both MangaHigh and RazKids have been sent home in the communication book on Sun., Sept. 16, 2018. You may remove them and keep them at home for your reference.

Read and play every day!

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 :)

2-8 House Colours 2018-19.pdf

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

Our House Teams

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,

Thank you for attending 'Meet the Teacher' evening.

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.
