Books for current year:
Grades V – VIII: Books are available online for now as shipment from Singapore is delayed due to CoVID-19 shipment restrictions. We request Parents to help their kids access the online books through parent login. Physical textbooks are expected to be distributed by the middle of October. Expect further communication in that regard.
To access the books, login to your ITA/CTA account, select Parent Access, Child Resources Info and click on the book icon below the ITA textbook header. This should give the list of books for your child. Select the book name to open it (make sure pop-up blocker is not active).
Grades Preschool 1 to Grade IV: Book distribution is closed. Please reach out to the school principal if you have not received the text books. There are few students yet to receive story books and we are hoping to distribute them along with higher grade textbooks.
Assembly: School will start with a virtual assembly at 9:45 AM. After assembly, students are required to join their individual classroom sessions conducted by their respective teachers.
Parents, teachers and students should have calendar invites already for the assembly session. Teachers & students are requested to join the assembly through the live stream link available in their sactamilacademy.org’s calendar.
Upcoming class assembly performance:
Oct 03 2021: Grade 7, section B
Oct 10 2021: Grade 6, section A
Oct 24 2021: Grade 6, section B
Attendance: Attendance is a key component of our grading system as you all should know. Attendance will be marked by the attendance officer during the live classroom session (weekly Sunday 10-11:30 AM). Arriving after 10.15 am or leaving before 11.15 am will be marked as Tardy. Don’t forget that 100% attendance for the academic year gets a special recognition at the end of the year.
Conversation Videos by AKT (grades KG, 1, & 2):
Conversation videos by AKT are made to be part of the curriculum for Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2. Access is available to those videos on the CTA / ITA webportal for the respective teachers and parents.
Here are the links to documents on “How to access Conversation Videos by AKT” for different roles:
Instruction method: Classes are conducted through Google classroom & meet. All new students by now should have received and activated their sactamilacademy Google workspace logins. If not, please reach out to their teachers and/or principal(s). For security reasons, all students & teachers must join or access the content and meeting ONLY through the authorized sactamilacademy.org Google workspace. Since this facility allows each student to have a full google account, Parents are responsible to monitor their child’s activities, progress, & assignments.
