State seal of biliteracy exam coaching: To assist high school senior students to get the biliteracy seal in the Tamil language, our school volunteers will be conducting coaching and refresher classes every Sunday at our school starting at 11:15 am. See details in the presentation posted here. We had one student sign up last week; looking forward to seeing many more high school graduating students take advantage of this opportunity & earn the seal of biliteracy. Interested and eligible students should reach out to the school principal/vice-principal to sign up.

Attendance: Attendance is a critical component of our grading system as you all should know. The attendance officer will mark attendance during the live classroom session. Arriving after the assembly or leaving before 11.15 am will be marked as tardy. Don’t forget that 100% attendance for the academic year is recognized at the year’s end.
Health Check: COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses have been on the rise. As we are returning back from the winter break and holiday celebrations, few friendly reminders:
- Consider masking up in indoor public places
- Cover coughs and sneezes and wash hands frequently
- Stay home when sick, whether it’s COVID-19 or something else that can get others sick
