Katitjiny – Week 11 – 28.06.2021

Week 11 – commencing 28.06.2021

Flashlight Friday:

This Friday, 2 July we will be holding a very special school-wide event. We will be turning out the lights in our classrooms and using flashlights to read. The purpose of Flashlight Friday is to get students excited about reading and to have fun!

Please send a small flashlight or something similar with your child this Friday.

Students will be expected to keep the flashlights tucked away in their backpacks until the Flashlight Friday event begins in their class.  Students are also invited to bring in a small blanket, a cushion and their favourite books!

Clarinet

Clarinet lessons have been cancelled this week.  Please practise during school the holidays 😊

Student Reports

Student Semester 1 reports will be uploaded to Connect this week.

Where to find the reports on Connect:  Once published, parents and students can find the reports in the My Children tab of Connect in the section called Reports. You will only see the Reports section if there are published reports for your child. Once published to Connect, reports will remain available until your child leaves the public education system. To see previous years’ reports, select the year from the right-hand menu.

Millen has uploaded student reports from Semester 1 2019.

If you are having problems logging in to Connect or the ConnectNow app, please send an email to lisa.sinclair2@education.wa.edu.au or Janine.leng@education.wa.edu.au or pop into the office so we can help you.

KINDY PARENTS:  Reminder to return the purple Application for Enrolment to re-enrol your child at Millen for Pre-Primary 2022.  As Pre-Primary is the first compulsory year of schooling, all children must be re-enrolled.

WE WANT YOUR ELIGIBLE CONTAINERS . . .

We are accepting eligible items for the Containers for Change scheme (bins located outside the art room) – see below.  For safety reasons, please don’t send glass items with students – adults are welcome to drop them off in the bins though.

. . . and your bread tags . . .

  • The students in Room 5 will be collecting plastic bread tags. Pop the tags into a small envelope or re-usable zip-lock bag and send to school with your child. The Room 5 students will collect each week from the classrooms. There will be a reward for the classroom that collects the most.

. . . and your old toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes.

  • We are now a recycling collection hub for Oral Care Products including toothpaste tubes and caps, manual toothbrushes, electronic toothbrush heads, toothbrush and toothpaste plastic packaging and dental floss containers. Please make sure all items are clean and toothpastes tubes are empty. Items can be dropped in the designated bin located in the front office, outside the Art Room, or in the ECE area. To find out more you can visit https://www.terracycle.com/en-AU/brigades/oral-care-brigade-hubs-au

Of course, the best option is to try and avoid getting the plastic in the first place – Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, and Repurpose come before Recycle.
