Dear parents and students,
I would like to welcome you all to a new school year at ACIC. The teachers and I are all excited to see you back on campus. The last couple of years have been tough on many people who suffered without daily quality face to face interaction. We all hope that conditions worldwide this year are more stable and that schools can provide onsite instruction for the whole year.
We have many things planned for this school year. I would like to share with you some of these plans. Firstly, we have subscribed our middle school students on two prestigious platforms which are Savvas/Pearson and McGraw-Hill. These two platforms will provide students with digital resources in English, math, science and social studies. Students will have usernames and passwords to access these platforms and find the resources for each lesson. Parents can use their child’s account to supervise and follow up on assignments. Students will receive instruction on using the platforms the first week of school. Parents can check our school website for parent manuals on how to use the platforms.
Continuous follow up and communication is highly advised through our school LMS, SKOLERA. Parents can do so through the URL: https://acic.skoleralms.com or by downloading the App. The parent usernames and password for grade 6 parents and new parents will be sent during the first week. Parents can find video tutorials on how to use all the features of SKOLERA LMS posted on the school website.
A new procedure we will be following this year is having screening assessments for language and math during the first week. Theses assessments will be used to analyze any gaps in students’ previous knowledge and enable us to plan an individualized action plan to help students in need.
Finally, we are thrilled that this year we plan to conduct and continue our middle school activities and events. These include but are not limited to our middle school student council elections, science fair, poetry competition, academic competition and entrepreneur day.
We are all looking forward to a fruitful year!
