Second week of school is only 4 days long!
This week was a short week for the folks at The Renaissance Preparatory Academy but it was jam packed full!
My letter to the editor of the Sun News was published on Tuesday (see the picture on the right) .
The students were busy creating their family trees. As an FYI, our foreign language is American Sign Language. So as the kids created their own family tree books complete with paper dolls, they also learned how to sign the various family relationships. They are learning and remembering their signs so quickly and their hands move through the spelling part like nimble little butterflies!
This was also the week that the students demonstrated that they knew their Honor Codes in the Primary Class. I was so impressed at how well they remembered the whole thing! They were so cute as they recited it and looked so darling in their uniforms!
We had a 4-day week because Friday was a holiday for us as we as a school showed our respect for the Islamic religion by taking Friday off for a religious holiday (Eid al Adha: Observed). Monday, of course, is Labor Day and is also a holiday! So our first week was 3 days longs and our 2nd and 3rd weeks are only 4 days long each… we’re easing into the school year! You can checkout all of our holidays via our posted calendar.
Enrolling a New Kindergarten Cohort for children age 5 by October 16. Classes start October 2.
Our whole first term is a short one since it is the last end of our normal summer term. This is important because our next time to enroll a new Kindergarten Cohort begins with our next term which is the Fall term. We are enrolling children who will turn 5 by October 16 to start in a kindergarten cohort starting Oct 2. This is a small cohort so that these children can get the best start to school ever! When spaces are gone, children will be added to a wait list for our next cohort start which will be January 8, 2018.
Whew! Jam packed and a great start!
