4:30 pick up this Friday!

The Environmental Health Officer paid a visit to inform us that they wish to fog the area this Friday.  This is being done as a precaution with the recent outbreak of dengue in the territory and the increase of mosquitoes with the recent rains.  We need to request all children to be picked up by 4:30p.m. on Friday afternoon to safely accomplish this.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Welcome to our new year 2012-2013

Hello to all,

It is hard to believe that we are already at the end of the first week of our new academic year. We want to take this opportunity to say a big welcome to all the new students, parents and teachers. Also a big welcome back to all those returning. As usual we look forward to a great year at First Impressions. Education is the key to a successful life and we want all those who pass through FI to be successful. Let us support each other and work together to make it another fun-filled, hard working, successful year for all of us.

If you are subscribed to this website, please take this opportunity to click the link in the e-mail you received and update the categories that you are subscribed to. Confirm that you are subscribed to your child’s class and any other activities. E-mail does not always go to everyone, so please check your subscriptions now.

We hope you all had a pleasant, enjoyable and memorable summer. Now it’s back to work (which is not a bad thing) and back to building our children who will be the adults of tomorrow.

Wonderful Ending Weekend

Students, Parents and Friends,

We had a wonderful weekend to end the school year. It started with the inaugural graduation ceremony and prize giving ceremony on Friday, June 29th. This was a momentous occasion for First Impressions and we were happy to share it with so many supporters. Congratulations to our first graduates, all of whom passed their exams with a Grade 1 Level pass. These first results from First Impressions Primary School make us proud.  Thank you all for making this day the great day it was.

Then on Sunday, July 1st there was the final day of the BDO Football League and we were treated to a long afternoon of great football which was followed by the awards ceremony. Once again we placed very high in this competition. Our U7 team placed 3rd in their division and an exhibition game was played between the 1st and 2nd place winners. The U9 division played their final match and our team won this match for 1st place in this division. This match was followed by the U12 final match. This turned out to be a nail-biting, heart-pounding match which after full time and overtime was tied with a score of 1-1. The match had to be decided by a penalty shootout and this is where our team finally won the victory.

First Impressions ended up with two 1st place positions and one 3rd place position. Congratulations to all the students who took part and to all the parents who supported all throughout the league and who rocked the stands as we cheered on our teams.

Have an enjoyable summer and we look forward to seeing you again when school re-opens. To those who will be leaving our FI family, especially to the graduates, we will miss you and we wish you success in all your future endeavours.

Support for Teacher Ann’s final arrangements

Dear First Impressions Parents,

In response to our beloved Teacher Ann’s untimely passing, many parents have expressed their fondness for Teacher Ann, their sympathies for her loved ones, as well as their desire to assist; especially financially, with her final arrangements.  In the interest of time (Teacher Ann is to be interred in Jamaica), and to ease the burden that Mrs. Frett and other staff members are presently carrying, I have volunteered to assist in coordinating collection efforts at the school to ensure that Teacher Ann’s family receives our full support; moral and financial.

To this end, parents who wish to make financial contributions may do so by cash or check.  Please note that checks should be made payable to First Impressions and placed in the allotted box. A donation box will be made available at the school for persons wishing to donate from Friday May 11th thru Friday May 18th.

I will never forget you, the things you helped me through
I saw my inspiration
It is you

You were always there when I needed you
I now will always have great memories of you
You helped me through it all
Coming to save me every time I fall
If I could say one word
That wouldn’t tell it all

I am so happy to have had you with me
You helped me to really see what I couldn’t see
You helped me to find the real me
and turned me into the beautiful person that I was meant to be
