Welcome to the 5A Blog

Greetings 5A Community,

Welcome to our first blog post of the year. We have had a wonderful time this week getting to know each other by engaging in team building activities and developing routines that allow us to work safely and productively. I feel very privileged to be working with your children.

Class schedules and calendars have been sent home. The calendar contains important holiday information. For more detailed information, you will need to follow the instructions included inside for how to connect to the school’s Google Calendar.

This blog is the main form of communication between 5A and home. Each week I will post what we have done during the week, and preview what to expect the following week.

SeeSaw – The student platform

This year elementary students will be using ‘Seesaw’ to reflect and share their learning with home. Seesaw is private; only people who are invited to view will see posts created by your child.

Please Sign Up Now

Click on this link: https://app.seesaw.me/s/759-946-149

  1. Choose your child from the list
  2. Create your account
  3. Once I approve you, you can see content from your child

After you sign up, download the free Seesaw Family app and sign in. You can also access Seesaw from a computer at https://app.seesaw.me.

If you used Seesaw last year or have more than one child using Seesaw, follow the link above, then click the ‘Sign in’ tab at the top of the screen. You do not need to create a new account.

Housekeeping Hints

Each day students should bring to school:

  1. A hat to enjoy outside play
  2. A reusable water bottle to keep with them at all times
  3. Personal headphones, preferably with microphone (very important for clear recording).

I look forward to meeting you at our ‘Back-to-School Night’ on the evening of September 6th. You can also drop me an email at dbrewster@unishanoi.org. I do not answer emails while I’m teaching, so if it is important, please contact the ES office.

If your child takes the bus to or from school, please ensure that you contact the transport department if there is a change to their bus schedule.
