If you are looking for reading suggestions to help your children with their reading choices at Keith Grammar School, why not check out the School Library Book Recommendation webpage. It has a growing number of ‘If You Like …’ themed lists to choose from, a ‘Bookflix’ page and recommendation videos made by Moray school librarians. The ‘If You Like …’ book lists are specifically aimed at S1-3 pupils. A new themed list will be posted each week till October – so keep checking back!
A letter has been sent to parents regarding Covid 19 arrangements in school, including the new regulations about wearing of masks which comes into effect on Monday 31st August.
Masks should be kept in a plastic bag/ similar when not being worn.
A clean mask should be brought each day.
Parents should get in touch with us at school if they think their child is exempt from wearing a mask so that we can inform the relevant staff.
This is another change that we will support young people with and we appreciate your support as always.
This week, S1 pupils are being sent home with letters and parent/guardian codes for Show My Homework. Pupils will have logged into Show My Homework in school and will have some experience of returning homework.
When using SMHW on a PC at home, search for “Show My Homework Login” or click here. If you wish to download the app onto other devices, this can be done through Google Play or the Apple Store.
Pupils will login using their Glow username and password and have been reminded to keep these in a safe place.
For help in using SMHW, select the appropriate link below to take you to the help pages:
There are many practical issues young people will be worrying about when thinking about coming in to school tomorrow. Where will I eat? How do I get in? Where are the toilets?
