to elementary school at Lahore American School. I’m excited
about the opportunity to know you and I’m looking forward
to a happy and productive 2011-2012 school year.
Please read and become familiar with the Elementary School
Parent and Student Handbook. This year’s Handbook is
an online version. It contains valuable information for students
and parents and is designed to help readers easily locate
the information needed to answer many of your questions and
guide your decisions throughout the year.
Communication is the key to a successful relationship with
your child’s teacher. LAS offers several avenues for
communication including email, SMS, Moodle and our school
website. The best way to communicate with your child’s
teacher is to make an appointment. Parents can do this through
email or by contacting the elementary office. The school’s
weekly communication tool is the Friday Flash which is uploaded
onto the school website each Friday to keep parents and students
up to date with current events taking place in the school.
Moodle is our virtual school component in case of unforeseen
school closures. Teachers keep Moodle updated weekly with
newsletters, schedules and assignments.
I encourage you to explore the school calendar and Moodle
as they include information concerning the end of semester
reporting dates, parent/teacher conferences and elementary
assemblies. Please mark those dates on your calendar. Studies
show that parental involvement in their child’s education
is one of the strongest indicators of student achievement.
We hope you will make it a priority this year to attend as
many school sponsored events as possible.
If you have any concerns or if you would like to schedule
a conference, please contact the elementary office. The best
times to reach me are during school hours.
Once again, welcome to LAS. Let’s work together to
make this the best year ever!
