Dear Students and Guardians,
Having spoken to many of you at the Parents meeting, and the Autumn party I know you have had a great summer and that you are looking forward to a new academic year at IES Umeå. The seasons come and go rather quickly up here in the North, and even this morning, during the daily meet and greet, Mr Drage and myself were outside wearing our winter jackets, still in August! It’s nice to see so many new faces dropping the students off in the morning, and it is the best part of our day welcoming the students to school, and saying hello to the parents too. Another quick reminder that school starts everyday this year at 08:20 this year.
Last Friday we have had a fantastic start off with our annual Autumn Party here at our school and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone involved, especially the PTA who, as usual, did an outstanding job to make such an event. I know that members of the PTA visited the classes during the Parent Meetings, and we really want to encourage more parents to be involved in helping create a larger and stronger PTA. What a success this event was and how nice it was to mingle with parents, students and visitors.
