PTM Circular

2nd December, 2019

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As Term Two of the current academic session comes to an end, we are looking forward to discussing the progress and overall development of our dear children of Prangan. This is the last PTM of the current academic session. However, reports will be prepared for the third quarter and your child will be bringing it home to you at the end of the year, in February, 2020. In the meantime, we have been meeting parents regularly on Saturdays to discuss progress and challenges if any, and shall continue to do so with prior appointments.

We will be sending the Report Card a day prior to the official PTM date to give you the time to study the report card in advance and subsequently have more time to interact with teachers. You are requested to sign and return the report to your child’s Class Teacher on PTM day.

PTM Plan

Saturday 7th December 2019: Grades 2 and 4: 9.00 a.m. to 12 noon.

Saturday 14th December 2019: Grades 3 and 5: 9.00 a.m. to 12 noon.

We request parents to please observe the timings and appreciate that all parents should get a chance to interact with the academic teachers. In case of any queries that require a long discussion, please feel free to meet the teachers earlier than the PTM day.

Our website showcases the many interesting events and competitions that we conducted during the academic year in Prangan. We are sure that you feel proud and acknowledge all of these big and small efforts- from class assemblies to external events. We would like to thank you here for your wonderful and generous response during the Joy of Giving Week.

A special note for Grade V Parents

There has been a tremendous response for the Agra Trip where about 104 students have opted for it. Thank you, parents!

INTERNATIONAL CURRICULUM-Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE)

As mentioned earlier, our school offers an international curriculum, the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) from Grade 6. The first batch of CAIE is currently in Grade XII - A Levels. They produced brilliant results in their Grade X IGCSEs. When your child moves to 

Grade 6 next year, there will be an option of choosing either the ongoing ICSE curriculum or the CAIE curriculum. We hope that this intimation will give you the opportunity to research its relevance for your child. The CAIE website has all the details @ http://www.cambridgeinternational.org/

An orientation session will be conducted and we will confirm the date and time with a message later. If you decide to take the CAIE path for your child, please send a confirmation email to me at headmistress.jr@sanskaarvalley.org  Please also be informed that, should your child go ahead with CAIE, then your child is not required to do a third language.

CHOICE OF THIRD LANGUAGE SANSKRIT/FRENCH FOR ICSE CURRICULUM 

As shared with you, in Grade VI, the students can opt for Sanskrit or French as a choice for third language but they will have to pursue the same till Grade 8. We thank you for filling in the language choice.

Looking forward to meeting you at the PTM.

 

With warm regards,

 

Manpreet Bhan, Head of Prangan-Junior School.
