A little over a month has passed since the start of the academic year. What a great time we have had. The students are settling into their new classes well. It is really impressive to see how quickly students make new friends. Mixing classes every year help build social skills and a strong sense of community.
A few weeks ago, parents and students were invited by the mentors to school for the PTS Conference/development talks for Autumn term. In these meetings, the students set academic and social targets for themselves for this academic year. I would like to remind everyone to keep working hard towards these targets, step by step. Teachers continue to work tremendously hard to support the students with their academic and social goals. SchoolSoft planning is up and of great quality, assessments and checkpoints have started to happen. Please check SchoolSoft regularly and do communicate with the mentor to ensure that your child, our student is progressing towards the targets set, and according to plan. If there are any issues, please communicate with the mentor first.
The school’s targets / Our quality work
The team of teachers and other staff together with the students will work as a team towards the following All School Targets this year:
Improve the learning environment by focusing on the aspect of calm and quiet in every lesson and every activity.
Maintain high academic results, and integrity in grading.
Each Year Team and Department is also in the process of setting their specific targets for the year.
Working towards a goal or a set of goals make our environment structured and reliable. It ensures we can continue to improve an already successful school. We are all committed to delivering on our promise to students, parents and colleagues every day.
PTA (Parent Teacher Association)
The PTA has already had several meetings this year so far. They also organized a fantastic lecture with the adventurer Aron Anderson at Vällingby theatre earlier this week. We have a strong PTA whose main job is to support the students and the school. There is a need for more parents to join the PTA. Please contact them directly if you are interested. Their contact information can be found on SchooLSoft.
Earlier this week all students voted in the Student Council Presidential election. The results of the election will be shared with everyone soon. I look forward to continuing working closely with the student representatives this year. We have also had our first Food Council meeting with the catering company.
Our SO department organized the school election for all students. The results of the vote can be found here https://www.stockholmdirekt.se/nyheter/hasselbyeleverna-fler-i-var-gener...
