Well, summer vacation goes to the end and off to school we go together. It's time to study, grow, and play. Our first day was an exciting day! It's full of happiness and hope for all of us! It's lovely to meet you all. I'm so happy to have you in my class and get ready to start where you left off. I look forward to keeping you posted of all the great things we'll do together.

العودة الى المدرسة
جاء الخريف فصل الجد والعمل،ففتحنا أبوابنا لنستقبل باقات الزهورالملونة،والأقلام الواعدة ،بناة الغد المشرق الواعد .
فمرحبا بك يا خريف،تحمل في طياتك بشائر الخير من غرس وجنى في آن واحد.

A letter to our Principal the First Day of School

Dear Mrs.Ghina, How are you? We all hope you are fine. This is the last year for us in Khalil Shehab school and we want to tell you how great time we are having. We like to thank you for the interesting activities that you made for us last year; it was a great year that we won’t forget. We remember when you took us to one of the Seven Wonders of the World ‘’Geitta Grotto’’. We also remember the amazing activities in English day and Eno Climate Campaign. This year we like to do a party on Mothers’ day. We promise you to be kind and helpful to our new friends, we will do our best to let them feel that Khalil Shehab School is their second home. Also, we promise you that we will follow the rules and be hard working students. We are looking forward for an interesting year. With all our love, Grade 6 students

They learned about Ancient Egypt and were so motivated designing their own necklaces as part of this project. Thanks Ms. Stephanie Baker, it's so interesting to see your class involved in these great activities. Have a wonderful school year!
