Weekly Bulletin (16 September)
Welcome to your first bulletin of the new school year, we hope that all students had a great break! It’s been a really positive start to the year at TLES, with Year 7 in particular hitting the ground running.
Last week we held our annual Presentation Evening which was an excellent evening, celebrating student successes over the last year- well done to all of our winners!
Here are some useful notices and reminders:
Year 6 Open Evening
It is our annual Year 6 Open Evening this Thursday starting at 5pm with the first talk at 5.30pm. As ever, we welcome any student who wants to help out on that evening, letters for this are available at Student Services.
The parents briefing evening for the exchange is going to be on Tuesday 24 September, 6-7PM in H1G. Please can reply slips be returned to student services by Friday 20 September.
Year 9 Maths Homework Books
You should have received communication last week regarding the purchase of homework books for Year 9 students. If you haven’t managed to purchase a book yet, then please could you do so at the earliest opportunity so that we can make our orders and get them to students.
Hopefully you have received login details for this. This is a very powerful app which allows you to see behaviour (positive and negative) in real time. All homework is also being set via Class Charts so you can track this too. If you have any trouble with this, please get in contact with main reception.
This year we will be running a number of reward events and we’ll keep you up to date with how you’re getting on.
There will be:
´ Termly reward assemblies
´ Termly reward events
´ Half termly reward events
´ Reward points converted into ‘House points’ which we will keep you updated on via these bulletins
Students will be notified of different events that will run throughout the year as well as the criteria to qualify for each event.
The first reward event will take place on Wednesday 25 September and will consist of an early lunch for the top ten students (based on reward points) from each year.
16+ Open Evening
Being aware of what your child is doing online is extremely important and communicating regularly about this will help. Social networking can offer a lot of positives, but can also pose some problems for children. It’s important to monitor your child’s profiles online to ensure that they are being safe online, this includes checking their ‘friends’ online are people that they actually know and trust.
