In the groups 4 and 5, Ms Marianne will support the groups by working in small groups. In groups 6 and 7 Ms Hilda and Ms Simone (doing the plus group for infants on Fridays) will be giving the group extra support by working on taal (language skills) and calculating. Ms Marlou (who does the plus support for groups 3 and 4) and Ms Lidia have, so far, worked on begrijpend lezen (intensive reading) and calculating with group 8 children. At this moment, the children of group 8, mostly work on preparing for their musical and do their final tests.

Final tests for CITO group 8
In our group, the average score for the final tests for CITO has been 539.4, which is a nice result and above the national average. We are very proud of our children attending group 8. Congratulations to all of you.
Our Oranjeschool MR is happy to announce that Rogier van Meeteren, father of Nova (group 5) and Ebba (group Zeesterren), offered to be candidate for MR.
Without further objections, we would like to welcome Rogier as new MR member at our next meeting planned on 8th June next.
Rogier’s Motivation: “My main priority is that children enjoy their school time. Children need to think of their school as a nice place to work on the foundation of their years to come. I would like to do my bit to make sure that this happens in a safe, healthy and pleasant way. We like to welcome you in the Oranjeschool MR!

Hooray, free of lice, unfortunately, not free of nits. The regarding groups received a letter already and they will receive extra check-ups. Please keep in mind to check thoroughtly! (and comb their wet hairs) The next check-up will be on Wednesday 3rd June next. Our school, has so far, been free of lice quite often. Mainly, due to your checks at home and………………. The monthly checks at school. Would it be possible for you to help out checking the children’s heads with other parents, please contact any members of the direction or OR. A number of groups will receive extra checks in the course of the week, we hope that we will be able to announce that our school is free of lice and nits again.
