Labas mieli tėveliai,
Laukiame Jūsų visų šeštadienį (09/09) 9 val. ryto mokyklos kieme. Pakelsime vėliavas ir tada bus mišios bažnyčioje, po kurių vyks mokslo metų atidarymas bažnyčioje.
Tada trumpa pertrauka ir vaikai eina į klases, o tėvelius kviečiame pasilikti susirinkimui ir registracijai mokyklos kieme.
Registracija bus priimama tik po oficialios dalies, kai vaikai išeis į pertrauką (apie 10:15 val). Bus kavos/ arbatos ir pyragaičių pasivaišint, tai nepabėkit.
Pietums bus cepelinai ir šaltibarščiai. Ačiū šeimininkei Daliai ir jos komandai! Labai prašome tėvelių nepirkti maisto išsivežimui iki pabaigos pietų, kad užtektų vaikams ir jie spėtų pavalgyti. Jie yra mūsų prioritetas šeštadieniais!
Pamokos vyks įprasta tvarka – iki 1:15 val.
Pirmą mokslo metų dieną visus vaikus pavaišinsime ledais po pamokų.
Kitos svarbios artimiausios datos:
Spalio 8d. Sekmadienį – mūsų mokyklos vaikų pasirodymas Lietuvių Dienose bus 12val. PAMOKŲ NEBUS ŠEŠTADIENĮ.
Laukiame pasimatyti rytoj!
Tėvų Komitetas ir p. Maryte
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow (9/9) at 9am in the school yard. After the flag ceremony, we will head to church for mass. After mass, we will have the celebratory opening ceremony in church (upper hall is not available).
Registration forms will be accepted only after the oficial part and after the kids go to break (around 10:15am). We will have coffee and treats to enjoy, so please stay for the parent meeting and registration and signing up to volunteer for all the fun events. 😉
LUNCH will be available thanks to ponia Dale and she will serve cepelinai and saltibarsciai. We humbly ask parents not to buy extra food to take back home until all the kids have eaten during their designated lunch time. They are our priority and we want to make sure they are fed and happy.
Kids will be treated to ice cream after school.
Other important dates:
October 8th (Sunday), our students will be performing at 12pm at Lithuanian Days Fair. More information to come. NO SCHOOL ON SATURDAY.
We cannot wait to see everyone tomorrow!
