Dear Parents and students,
I hope everyone had an amazing summer filled with rest, relaxation and an abundance of good times and laughter. Hopefully, everyone is energized and ready to start another amazing school year at Futuraskolan International Kottla.
The first day of school for students will be Wednesday, August 21 and we will start with an introduction from 9.00-13.00. The students will meet with their mentor teachers and go through our school rules, goals and expectations. Lunch will be served on the first day. (This is a slight adjustment from my June letter).
Thursday and Friday will also be days without regular schedules. On Thursday, we will be working with students in a variety of ways with the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC), the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, team building activities, our school’s core beliefs and how we view international mindedness at our school. Friday will be a mentor day. The Grade 7 classes will be off to Barnens Ö and the Grade 8-9 classes will be participating in various activities with their respective mentor classes. The school days will run from 9.00-14.00 on the 22nd and 23rd, and lunch will be served. On Monday, August 26th, we will begin with our set schedules.
As mentioned in my June letter, I am delighted to announce that Ms. Jenny Proestos will take on a new role at our school as the Vice Principal. Jenny will help strengthen our school immensely, and I am looking forward to working closely with her this year to help improve our school and make it even better than it is today. We will be sending out some more info at the end of the week regarding staffing- looking forward to seeing all of our students on August 21st at 9.00!
Mark your calendars!
Parent Evening for Grade 7- September 3rd, 17.00-19.00.
Parent Evening for Grade 8-9- September 4th, 17.00-19.00.
