NEWSLETTER   NO. 5   3/3/16

TERM 1

We have just finished week 5 of an 11 week term so ALL students are now well into our routines and are aware of how AIS works.  The focus is learning and we will be driving that hard with all students.  In many cases we need to be pushing to accelerate the learning to get students working to the best of their ability. Support from home is also essential to make this work.
