First day of school at Asker International
It was the first day of school today at Asker International School. We were very excited to welcome back our former students as well as all the new students joining us this year! It was great to see our new grade 1 class today. They have a shorter set of days than normal over the first 5 days. This is to allow them time to adjust and settle in. Starting school is a big change!
Our other grades started back with a normal school day. The only significant difference was that we had an assembly after lunch, after the students had settled in a little. The purpose of the assembly was to welcome all back officially and to introduce our new teachers.
We have several new teachers. Miss Catie in grade 4, Mr. Thomas in grade 3, Miss Siri in Norwegian PYP, Miss Marianne in Norwegian MYP, Miss Jeanita in Norwegian PYP and Miss Lauren in performing arts MYP. We are very happy with our new additions and hope they grow to be part of our growing family, now with 35 members of staff and almost 300 students!
