          CIRCULAR FOR PARENTS – CLASSES UKG, I &II (FOLLOW UP ACTIVITIES) 

          Dear Parents,

          As you are aware the parents form the vital link between home and school for children. Parents not only influence their children’s attitudes about learning but also help in making the school a better place for them to learn and grow. Researchers have established the fact that successful parent-teacher partnerships have resulted in improved educational outcomes for students. Keeping this purpose in mind we are planning regular ‘Follow-up Activities’ for our students of classes UKG-II, in a bid to create more opportunities for parents to involve themselves in school activities. 

          The basic objective of these activities is to improve the abilities and skills of students, to reinforce what they have learned at school, to develop study skills and life skills, instill a sense of discipline and responsibility and help in engaging the child with the parents while working and playing. The activities would range from observation of surroundings, visit to different places with the parents, learning a poem/ speech, collecting pictures/ objects, writing sentences, drawing pictures, practicing a song, playing a game, solving a puzzle, doing hands-on activities, practicing objective type questions etc. These activities will not only help in enhancing students' school performance but also will allow the parents to participate more in the process of their children's education.

          For class UKG the follow-up activity will be mentioned in their note books/ school almanac by their teachers or through hand-outs. The activities for classes I & II will be uploaded on the school website. Please access the Homework link on tafssp.com for the ‘Follow-up Activities’ of classes I & II.

          Together let’s create high standards of learning experiences for our children!

          Warm Regards
