On Saturday October 22nd an “Open House” was held at Makassed KSPS. Parents were very happy to meet KSPS new principal, Mrs. Rana Sabbidine, and KSPS staff. Mrs. Rana started the meeting by introducing herself and summarizing the school’s activities and special events for this year. She emphasized on the importance of implementing the reward-punishment system while dealing with students. Then, the coordinators presented a power point presentation that gives an overview of the curriculum, strategies, behavior policies, and new technologies used while teaching. Many great ideas were shared and this open house provided opportunities for teachers to gain parents' support - opening doors for a good first impression. This meeting created a personal connection with parents and set the stage for continued communication throughout the school year.
