Welcome Letter Year 5 - 9

IES Kista Senior Management Team

Dear Guardians and Students,

We are very proud to welcome you to school after a well deserved summer break. We hope that you have had time to rest and relax so that you are ready for the academic year that is upon us.

At the school, preparations have been going on during the whole summer and we can proudly say the school has had a nice new set of decorations and posters created by Ms Parada and her team.

We have a few new teachers coming to work with us in the coming term and we are very happy to announce that they are super excited to work with our students and parents to ensure the best academic and social development possible for every child.

Our leadership and administration teams are currently working on academic planning and overseeing the renovation of the school yards, the painting of the walls inside the classrooms, and developing processes and systems that are to be put in place as the next school year starts. 

We very much look forward to seeing you all!

Best regards

Team Kista Talk - Coming Soon: Summer!

Team Kista Talk - Coming Soon: Summer!

It’s that time of the year when everyone can tell that the end is near. Students are turning in their last bits of work for the school year and teachers are setting final grades. The temperature is rising and there’s something in the air - not pollen! - that fills us with anticipation for the upcoming season.

As Mr Östling Huhta says in this week’s Team Kista Talk, we’re all looking forward to the rest that summer will bring, especially after this year.
