Dear Parents

We look forward to seeing everyone this evening at our Parent Education Meeting with our guest speaker, Occupational Therapist, Dana Katz. Please invite friends along to share a cup of coffee and benefit from this informative hour long talk. There is no charge.

This week we welcome Rachel Bruintjies back. She will be the assistant teacher in the Cub Class when Nomathemba leaves us next week. We thank her for her time at Monterey and appreciate her compassion for the children and her commitment to the school. We wish her well while awaiting the birth of her pink bundle of joy and everything of the best for her future endeavours.

To the parents of the Grade R children, please inform your child’s teacher as to which school they will be attending for Grade 1 next year. To those still awaiting responses, persevere and we wish you success in your applications.
