Dear Students and Guardians at IES Skärholmen
This Saturday we introduced our new intake of Year 4 and it was wonderful. From now on I will publish a short version of my letter on the web page for everyone to see!
Preparations for next academic year
To be an attractive employer for our teachers we have already prepared who will teach what for next academic year. This is so the teachers can contribute with their requests about what is the best for the future. We have a lot of positive changes that will be communicated in the next newsletter (for example we will start having PE in Sätrahallen already from year 7 next year) and the management team are excited for next academic year.
Rocka Sockorna 21st March
Just like last year we celebrate the Worlds day for Downs Syndrome by mixing our socks on the 21st of March. The students in the Equal Rights Group have prepared the event and they will be supported by the year 9s to continue the project. This is a big part of our equal treatment plan and we take this opportunity to talk about diversity.
We love chess!
Like previous years we will take part of Schack 4an in Globen. This year it is not only our year 4s that will participate but we have also been asked to help with volunteers during the day. I am very proud that we can trust our students with additional responsibility. The students that volunteer, will earn money that will contribute to their own prom in year 9. This is a long term goal for some but we found that it is valuable educational experience for students to work hard now for greater future rewards and they were happy to have the opportunity!
