Reuniting After Summer Break

Reuniting After Summer Break

Welcome back to second term!

We have been back at school for one whole week now! Our teachers have been so happy to see some familiar faces again at the kindergarten! Some kids have gotten taller, some kids have gotten faster at getting ready in the morning/afternoon, and some kids have gotten new haircuts!

Jupiters have been working on how to hang their uniforms on their personal hangers.

Teachers have also made a lot of changes for the new semester. First, our school also has a new sanitizer station, included with a thermometer to measure everyone’s temperature on their wrist. Second, we have also asked students to make sure they stay home even if they feel only a little under the weather. None of our students have gotten infected up until now, and we intend on keeping it that way while the virus continues to spread.

After welcoming everyone back to the kindergarten, we took some time in our individual English classes to talk about what everyone did over summer break. Everyone brought photo collages and hand-drawn pictures to show their friends what they were up to.

From second semester, many programs are added to our normal daily structure at ILH. Jupiters will be included in Show & Tell and also will be given the same Leader Board responsibilities as their upperclassmen. Project BOB will also be added from the middle of September to help supplement everyone’s daily English learning.

Besides additional English, everyone will be busy getting ready for our various fall and winter events. It may turn into a busy time, but with a lot of support from our teachers, it will be a fun, fast, exciting couple of months!

Stay tuned for more updates this fall as things get started!

Our New Routine

Our New Routine

How have you been social distancing lately?

At the kindergarten, we have invited our students to come and join us for half a school day the past two weeks. Everyone has been checking their temperature and washing up often.

We also have had English class and craft spread out as much as we can.

Even though a lot of things in our schedule are different, we have made as much of our daily activities as normal as possible.

Yesterday, our teachers each spent an hour calling everyone in their class who decided to stay home. It was so nice to reconnect with each other and we hope we can do it again another time.

We also have been making YouTube videos for everyone staying home to make sure they can still learn with us!

Right now, everyone has a lot of extra free time with their kids. Try to practice anything they’ve learned in school, whether it’s old Project BOB books, our YouTube lessons, or just talking with teachers in our video calls.

We miss you and hope we can return to our new normal soon.
