Spring 2020 Here We Come!

From the Principal

Hello and welcome back to IES Hässelby Strand for our Spring term 2020! 

We hope that you are all well-rested and ready to jump back into what has already been a fantastic school year. Here are some things to look forward to at the start of this spring! 

First, we are so happy to welcome Ms. Rebecca Tideman to the Swedish department! Ms. Tideman, a Stockholm local and graduate of Uppsala University will teach in years 6 and 8 and be a mentor for 6B: a. She's coming back to teach from spending a year away traveling in Australia and she's really happy and excited to meet all the students and start working this week! 

Second, we are also super excited to announce that Ms. Rosenquist will be joining our team! She will work to support the administration team with subbing, and she will act as extra support for students in and outside the lessons. Ms. Rosenquist is a local who actually attended and graduated from IESH! We're feeling so grateful (and a little old) to have one of our students come back and work for us. Welcome back, Ms. R.!

Third, the new football pitch is finally finished and we will have a grand opening ceremony week 3. The new pitch is beautiful, with perfectly level, beautifully painted turf, stronger goals with new nets, and better and safer access with a new wider lockable gate. I am currently in the process of ordering some new jerseys and balls to be used with the new pitch. For now, students can continue to rent balls from Mr. Tell in the rec. room. Enjoy! 

Wow! So many exciting things! 

Please be on the lookout for more important academic information from your teachers on Schoolsoft! 

Welcome back, everyone!

Mr. Wallace
