Welcome to the new school year!
This year in KG we have 36 returning students and 11 new students.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to the following students who are new to KIS:
KGA – Ganta, Hague, Mark, and Prize
KGB – Ai, Patsan, Suniya, and Tyler
KGC – A-na, Jett, and Joe
When students arrive in the morning, they put their backpacks in their cubbies and their water bottles in the crates (each of which is marked with Class A, B, or C). They then head outside to the playground. Morning supervision starts at 7:30am and the children have outside play time until 7:50am when the bell rings. We then line up by class outside before heading into the classroom.
At the end of the day, bus students will be taken to meet their monitors first before we dismiss the remaining students. Parents/guardians who arrive to pick up their children may enter the classroom at 2:30pm to sign them out. Once signed out, please wait for us to call your child to come out to meet you.
In KG we will are getting into the routine of brushing our teeth after lunch. If you haven’t already done so, please send in a toothbrush, a small tube of toothpaste, and a small cup for your child. Please ensure that everything is clearly marked with their name in permanent marker.
Class A has PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Class B has PE on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Class C has PE on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Please send your child to school in their PE uniform on those days.
KG students will have swimming classes on Thursdays starting next week (Aug. 23rd).
Please send in a pair of slippers for your child to wear on swim days at your earliest convenience. We will keep them in the classroom.
Students are encouraged to wear their swimsuits underneath their uniforms on swim days (please remember to send a pair of underwear for them to change into.
Students should also bring a towel, goggles, and swim cap.
Please note that swimming is a required part of the programme, therefore, if for some reason your child is unable to participate on any particular day, be sure that you send in a doctor’s note to specify the reason.
KG will visit the library on Mondays (KGA), Tuesdays (KGB), and Wednesdays (KGC).
Book folders will be sent home on Mondays. Please be sure that they are returned on Fridays.
The school cafeteria provides milk for students to drink if they choose to do so during morning and afternoon snack times. There is no need to send milk to school unless your child has special dietary needs.
Birthdays (NO NUTS please)
Birthday celebrations take place during afternoon snack time in the cafeteria. Please let us know in advance if you wish to bring/send in a treat for your child’s birthday. Please ensure that anything that is sent in does not contain nuts.
Change of Clothes
Please bring in a change of clothes (shirt, shorts, and underwear) for us to keep in class for your child in case of emergency.
There will be a ‘Back-to-School’ coffee meeting for parents taking place in the upcoming weeks. Meetings will be scheduled between August 27th – September 12th. Once we have confirmed the date for the KG meeting we will let you know.
New students will be assigned to one of four houses: Erawan, Hanuman, Naga, or Tosakan. Students will receive a house shirt which they will be able to wear on special days (Sports Day, House Shirt Days, etc.)
House Shirt Days will take place on the last Friday of each month.
