Please find attached our first newsletter issue. This is a new initiative to strengthen communication between the School and the ASM Community. In this monthly publication, we will be sharing with you updates on events and activities, topics of importance to the community, progress with regards to projects and initiatives, statistics, etc. Our next issue will be a little more extensive and will feature a Student Voice section where we will welcome written contributions from students.
We would like to invite you to our coffee morning at ASM to discuss ASM discipline policies and procedures, bullying and how parents can get involved.
KG3 – Grade 2 parents are invited in on Wednesday November 29th at 8.30 AM.
Grade 3-5 parents are invited in on Wednesday November 30th at 8.30 AM.
Both meetings will take place in the music room adjacent to the grade 5 classrooms. We hope to see you there!
One of the committees within The Outreach Club is the Journalism Committee. Their role is to report on all Upper School student activities at ASM. They aim to produce a seasonal newsletter covering all the great initiatives taking place this year.
Lower School Student Council are collecting warm coats and clothing for children and adults. The drive runs until November 24th and all donations will be given to a Berber Village. Please hand in your contributions to your child(s) homeroom teacher.
During the month of October, Outreach took a trip to the outskirts of Marrakech for an morning of trash picking. The knowledge we acquired from this experience was truly eye opening. This year’s clean-up initiative, was the second that Outreach had ever organized; our first trip happened last year during the month before the COP 22.
Outreach plans to have monthly clean-up trips in areas surrounding Marrakesh in hope to raise awareness in environmental issues that affect our community. Sign ups for these trips are posted monthly in school.
We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.
But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Fewer than half of all schools teach computer science.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
See http://hourofcode.com/uk for details, and help spread the word.
The PTO is in full swing this year with fun activities for ASM students. Please read the attached letter from the PTO Team. The posters highlight activities for this month, such as the Bake Sale and Halloween, and how you can participate in making these activities great for our students.
