Why
 
stagger
 
the
 
start?
 
As
 
we
 
come
 
to
 
the
 
end
 
of 
 
our
 
rst
 
week
 
of 
 
the
 
school
 
year,
 
we
 
would
 
like
 
to
 
address
 
the
 
ques
on
 
of 
 
‘the
 
staggered
 
start’
 
for
 
our
 
Early
 
Years
 
children.
 
As
 
parents
 
of 
 
children
 
in
 
Preschool,
 
Kindergarten
 
and
 
Grade
 
1
 
are
 
well
 
aware,
 
our
 
school
 
year
 
begins
 
di
ff 
erently
 
for
 
our
 
youngest
 
students
 
at
 
ISM.
 
Grade
 
1
 
students
 
spend
 
their
 
rst
 
day
 
of 
 
the
 
school
 
year
 
in
 
a
 
one
hour,
 
small
 
group
 
session,
 
mee
ng
 
their
 
new
 
teacher,
 
seeing
 
their
 
new
 
learning
 
space,
 
and
 
ge
ng
 
to
 
know
 
some
 
new
 
friends
 
as
 
well
 
as
 
perhaps
 
seeing
 
some
 
familiar
 
faces
 
from
 
the
 
previous
 
year.
 
This
 
day
 
also
 
gives
 
parents
 
a
 
chance
 
to
 
meet
 
the
 
teacher
 
and
 
discuss
 
classroom
 
rou
nes.
 
Most
 
importantly,
 
it
 
allows
 
the
 
Grade
 
1
 
children
 
to
 
understand
 
what
 
their
 
school
 
day
 
will
 
look
 
like,
 
to
 
ask
 
ques
ons
 
and
 
to
 
share
 
with
 
their
 
parents
 
later
 
that
 
day
 
what
 
they
 
are
 
excited
 
about,
 
or
 
even
 
nervous
 
about.
 
For
 
Kindergarten
 
learners,
 
the
 
staggered
 
start
 
recognizes
 
that
 
many,
 
although
 
not
 
all,
 
of 
 
the
 
children,
 
have
 
come
 
from
 
a
 
day
 
of 
 
learning
 
that
 
is
 
completed
 
by
 
lunch
me.
 
For
 
these
 
children,
 
who
 
are
 
5
 
years
 
old
 
and
 
turning
 
6
 
within
 
the
 
next
 
year,
 
the
 
 jump
 
from
 
4
 
and
 
½
 
hours
 
of 
 
school
 
to
 
 just
 
under
 
7
 
hours
 
is
 
a
 
big
 
one.
 
It
 
isn’t
 
uncommon
 
to
 
see
 
some
 
Kindergarten
 
children
 
showing
 
signs
 
of 
 
needing
 
a
 
nap
 
in
 
the
 
a
ernoon
 
session
 
as
 
they
 
come
 
to
 
terms
 
with
 
a
 
full
 
day’s
 
schooling!
 
Clearly,
 
not
 
all
 
children
 
are
 
the
 
same
 
and
 
shouldn’t
 
be
 
treated
 
as
 
such.
 
Some
 
are
 
more
 
than
 
ready
 
for
 
a
 
full
 
day
 
well
 
before
 
Kindergarten,
 
having
 
experienced
 
a
 
di
ff 
erent
 
system
 
of 
 
educa
on
 
in
 
their
 
home
 
country
 
or
 
perhaps
 
even
 
here
 
in
 
the
 
Philippines.
 
But
 
in
 
a
 
situa
on
 
where
 
staggering
 
the
 
start
 
for
 
individual
 
children
 
is
 
simply
 
not
 
feasible,
 
our
 
philosophy
 
in
 
the
 
Elementary
 
School
 
is
 
one
 
of 
 
catering
 
to
 
the
 
needs
 
of 
 
the
 
majority
 
of 
 
our
 
students.
 
We
 
want
 
to
 
be
 
sure
 
that
 
the
 
structure
 
of 
 
the
 
day
 
at
 
the
 
beginning
 
of 
 
the
 
school
 
year
 
ensures
 
there
 
is
 
a
 
minimum
 
of 
 
anxiety
 
for
 
children
 
and
 
parents
 
alike.

(Continued from page 1)
For
 
our
 
Preschool
 
children,
 
the
 
staggered
 
start
 
is
 
crucial
 
to
 
their
 
understanding
 
that
 
their
 
parents
 
will
 
be
 
back
 
very
 
soon.
 
While
 
the
 
moment
 
of 
 
separa
on
 
is
 
extremely
 
di
cult
 
for
 
parents
 
(both
 
of 
 
us
 
as
 
Preschool
 
parents
 
have
 
been
 
there!)
 
the
 
rou
ne
 
is
 
established
 
slowly
 
but
 
surely
 
as
 
the
 
days
 
increase
 
from
 
1
 
hour
 
to
 
2,
 
and
 
then
 
eventually
 
to
 
 just
 
under
 
4
 
hours
 
a
 
day
 
for
 
our
 
Preschool
 
3’s
 
and
 
up
 
un
l
 
12:00pm
 
for
 
our
 
Preschool
 
4’s.
 
While
 
our
 
students
 
in
 
Grades
 
2
 
to
 
4
 
do
 
not
 
experience
 
the
 
staggered
 
start
 
in
 
the
 
form
 
of 
 
their
 
schedule,
 
their
 
transi
on
 
to
 
a
 
new
 
grade
 
level
 
also
 
takes
 
into
 
account
 
the
 
fact
 
that
 
the
 
learning
 
environment
 
is
 
a
 
di
ff 
erent
 
one.
 
Over
 
the
 
rst
 
weeks,
 
children
 
in
 
these
 
grade
 
levels
 
are
 
establishing
 
their
 
learning
 
communi
es,
 
talking
 
about
 
how
 
to
 
best
 
work
 
with
 
others,
 
and
 
developing
 
a
 
growing
 
understanding
 
of 
 
themselves
 
as
 
learners.
 
Teachers
 
meanwhile
 
are
 
building
 
the
 
rela
onships
 
with
 
their
 
students
 
that
 
we
 
know
 
are
 
cri
cal
 
to
 
your
 
children
 
enjoying
 
a
 
successful
 
year
 
in
 
the
 
ES.
 
Technology
 
This
 
year
 
you
 
might
 
no
ce
 
a
 
lot
 
of 
 
IT
 
changes
 
in
 
and
 
around
 
the
 
Elementary
 
School.
 
The
 
changes
 
are:
 

We
 
have
 
added
 
four
 
addi
onal
 
mobile
 
laptop
 
carts
 
for
 
each
 
class
 
to
 
book,
 
bringing
 
the
 
total
 
number
 
of 
 
laptop
 
carts
 
in
 
Elementary
 
to
 
eight
 

Each
 
classroom
 
now
 
has
 
access
 
to
 
their
 
own
 
set
 
of 
 
Ipad’s
 
or
 
Ipad
 
minis
 

Our
 
students
 
and
 
teachers
 
have
 
gone
 
'Google'
 
with
 
email
 
&
 
web
 
applica
ons
 
Not
 
everything
 
has
 
changed
 
though:
 

We
 
s
ll
 
have
 
two
 
computer
 
labs
 

Some
 
of 
 
our
 
classrooms
 
have
 
kept
 
their
 
desktop
 
computers
 

Interac
ve
 
Whiteboards
 
in
 
most
 
classrooms
 
In
 
addi
on
 
to
 
the
 
above
 
Elementary
 
IT
 
ini
a
ves,
 
one
 
of 
 
our
 
Grade
 
4
 
classes
 
will
 
be
 
trialing
 
Google
 
Chromebooks
 
(a
 
Google
 
laptop).
 
In
 
this
 
trial
 
each
 
student
 
in
 
the
 
class
 
will
 
have
 
their
 
own
 
Chromebook
 
to
 
use
 
at
 
school.
 
We
 
will
 
be
 
conduc
ng
 
a
 
case
 
study
 
exploring
 
how
 
children
 
use
 
1:1
 
technology
 
to
 
facilitate
 
learning
 
in
 
an
 
inquiry
 
based
 
classroom.
 
The
 
ndings
 
of 
 
this
 
study
 
will
 
ensure
 
that
 
we
 
are
 
making
 
informed
 
future
 
decisions
 
in

to
 
technology
 
at
 
ISM.
 
We
 
will
 
be

in
 
November,
 
where
 
we
 
will
 
explore
 
some
 
of 
 
the
 
issues
 
and
 
applica

of 
 
technology
 
in
 
learning.

From ES PE Teamrom ES PE Team 
Welcome
 
to
 
the
 
new
 
school
 
year
 
from
 
the
 
ES
 
PE
 
department.
 
We
 
look
 
forward
 
to
 
a
 
physically
 
ac

Please

footwear
 
and
 
PE
 
uniform
 
on
 
the
 
days
 
they
 
are
 
scheduled
 
for
 
PE.
 
We
 
also
 
ask
 
children
 
to
 
bring
 
a
 
full
 
water
 
bo
le
 
with
 
their
 
name

and
 
also
 
wear
 
a
 
hat
 
for
 
PE

scheduled
 
on
 
the
 
ES
 
Field.
 
We
 
hope
 
to
 
see

RECESS
 
SUCCESS!
 
The
 
PE
 
team
 
has
 
two
 
green
 
recess
 
boxes
 
in
 
the
 
ES
 
Plaza
 
with
 
sports
 
equipment
 
for
 
children
 
to
 
use
 
during
 
their
 
play
 
me.
 
Children
 
simply
 
need
 
to
 
hand
 
in
 
their
 
school
 
ID
 
to
 
a
 
supervisor
 
located
 
at
 
the
 
recess
 
box.
 
At
 
the
 
end
 
of 
 
play
 
chil
dren
 
return
 
the
 
borrowed
 
equipment
 
and
 
collect
 
their
 
Student
 
ID
 
card.
 
This
 
system
 
helps
 
students
 
be
 
responsible.
 
If 
 
children
 
forget
 
to
 
return
 
equipment
 
and
 
pick
 
up
 
their
 
ID
 
their
 
PE
 
teacher
 
will
 
return
 
their
 
ID
 
and
 
remind
 
them
 
of 
 
the
 
recess
 
equipment
 
guidelines.
 
Lastly
 
we
 
have
 
a
 
website
 
which
 
has
 
a
 
list
 
of
