Changes to Meet the Teacher Evening (planned for Thursday evening, 17 Feb)

Good morning everyone,
As a result of varying factors in our wider community, we are changing the face of our Meet the Teacher evening.  Traditionally, this has been a time to meet people over a picnic-style evening, and earlier this year, the school pointed out that this would not be the case in 2022.
While we would prefer to build strong community relationships between parents at such meetings as Meet the Teacher, we are going to run this year’s information sessions via email. This may well be a Powerpoint that you can refer back to as the year progresses. You will have information on how each class operates, and any classroom ideas that are specific to each classroom. The Primary School will add an introductory video in SeeSaw for parents to view.  Please look for the email from the whānau teacher for each of your children on Thursday afternoon 17 February.
On Thursday 24 February and Tuesday 1 March, we have the chance for you to book an individual session with teachers around goal setting for the year. We strongly encourage all parents to take up this opportunity as the clarity around goal setting helps us work more effectively in the home/school partnership that is a vital part of the ACS ethos.  A separate email will follow with how to book this appointment.
As usual, we are available to talk if need be.

Deputy Principal
