Message From The Principal

Dear ELC & LS Parents,

Spirit Week 2023 is finally here and the students are excited to be dressing up for the whole week next week. This is a fantastic way for them to show their school spirit and earn points for the House Teams for each day they dress up. A few important reminders though:

  • Students that are not dressing up for a particular theme should be wearing their regular uniform.
  • If it is their PE Day, students should bring their PE uniforms and rubber shoes.
  • In dressing up, the school dress code still applies; no short shorts, hanging shirts or spaghetti straps.
  • Students should be wearing proper shoes; no slippers, sandals or Crocs.

Friday next week, September 29, is House Rally Day so all students should be coming to school wearing their House shirt, PE shorts and running shoes. The ELC students and the LS students will be having separate House Rallies in Gym 2 at the main building. Parents are welcome to come and cheer for their children’s House Team. Here is the schedule of the House Rallies:

We are also gearing up for Booklatan 2023 this October 16-18. During this three-day event, we get to showcase Filipino authors and artists’ contributions to the arts and literature to our students. This year, we have invited comic artists from Kwentoon for our LS students on October 16 (Monday) and Mr. Robert Magnuson for our ELC students on October 18 (Wednesday). For Mr. Magnuson’s books, we have sent an email to ELC parents about pre-ordering his books in time for the book signing on that day. Do check that out.

Parent-Teacher Conference (PTC) Day is set for Monday, October 9. We will be sharing the link to sign up for appointments with the teachers on Wednesday next week, September 27, via email. Please make sure to check that out as soon as possible so you can secure a meeting slot with your children’s teachers.

Have a wonderful and restful weekend!

Warm regards,

Michelle R. Jingco

5 year old: Red card means you did something bad, and it means you need to talk to the boss and work there.

Mom: Who is that boss?

5 year old: Miss Jingco is the boss; good thing it’s not the tall guy.
