Welcome to Senior Kindergarten Homepage

Dear Parents,

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Heritage International School, or, if your child is returning, then welcome back. We are very much looking forward to getting to know you over the course of the year and to working with your children. Lets make it a positive and fruitful year for everyone.

The Kindergarten teachers this year are Miss Molly Adams in SKA and Miss Julia McEvoy in SKB. We can be reached at the following email addresses:

madams@heritageinternationalschool.com

jmcevoy@heritageinternationalschool.com

Each child will have a student planner in their bag at all times for communication from home and you can also simply call the school reception if you wish to meet with us.

Please make special note of the following:

  • – Your child will need healthy food and plenty of water every day.
  • – The school canteen is available to SK students. Coupons must be bought in advance from the cafeteria.
  • – Please provide your child with a complete change of clothes (not necessarily school uniform). In the event that the spare clothes are used, please return a new set the following day.
  • – Please provide your child with a painting overall (which will remain in class all year) as soon as possible.
  • – Please provide your child with 2 large packs of tissues for use in the classroom.
  • – Classroom supplies are provided by the school so please do not let your child bring his/her own pencil case to class as this causes disputes.
  • – Toys from home are not allowed at school unless specifically requested.
  • – Footballs are not permitted as they are extremely heavy and can hurt children. Soft balls for use in the garden are fine.
  • – If your child’s travel arrangements change on any given day, please contact the reception in the morning to let them know

We will update the SK “e corner” every Sunday so that you can see exactly what we are planning to cover in class on a weekly basis. Look at www.heritageinternationalschool.com and follow the link to SK in the elementary e corner.

This week we will be spending time getting to know each other and doing assessments.

Best regards,

Miss Molly and Miss Julia
