Dear Parents,

Today's assembly was the culminating event of Kiswahili Week. I would like to thank Mrs. Mushi and her team of students for educating and entertaining the community throughout the week. Today's assembly had a mix of student performances and two special guests from the local community. Mzungu Kichaa kicked off the event with a couple of his hits. Zuhura Seng'enge then performed her poetry which touched on the beauty of language and her relationship with the arts. As we know, it is so important for our community to experience talented individuals like these.




You have received information on the Student-Led Conferences that will take place April 8 - 9. Please don't forget to sign up. The students have been working on their portfolios and will be ready to articulate their learning and short term goals for the year. As I stated last year, it is important for any learner to hone their metacognitive skills. In the simplest terms, metacognition is "thinking about thinking". The activities leading up to the conferences are helping them develop these skills so that they can reflect on their performance and then look to the next steps in their learning. Parental participation in this event is so important for the student's learning. We look forward to seeing you on the 8th or 9th.
