Dear Guardians,

Before we knew it, January and February were behind us and it was time for Sportlov! 2022 so far has meant we at last saw the end of Covid 19 restrictions in school . We as a school are now slowly but surely returning to events like outings, having guest speakers in school, organizing clubs and much more. Sadly, without much time to recover from an international health risk, the world has shifted its attention to another risk, of a military kind. 

Looking back on the past two months, we are happy to mention a few things:  our Fun Fridays are alive and kicking - so far we have had Valentine’s theme February 14th which raised over 5 000 kr for homeless people in Stockholm. Thank you to all who supported this! We have also had our Aesthetic day on Feb 22 - a busy and fun day in which students created all sorts of fantastic things, from street art to animated movies. 

IES Järfälla have done well in the Language competition that we are part of - we qualified for the region finals in Swedish and English. Well done by our students!

The first round of several national tests in the spring term were held for grade 6 in Swedish on the 8th and 10th of February. During two intense days, our students worked hard to show us their writing skills and Swedish understanding. We are continuously reminding our students that the national tests are not the only important test in the year, and that they should not be too worried about these tests. Please help us spread the word to your kids!

We as a school continue to encourage student influence. As always the student parliament/student council is an important forum for our students as well as for us in staff. We have run monthly student food councils, and student council meetings, where students have a clearer chance to make a difference in matters regarding the school food. In March we have four  Student Council representative taking a Elevskyddsombudsutbildning (Student safety representative course) for half a day. 

In the pipeline: 

Winter sports day, March 11th.
Pi Day March 14th.
St Patrick’s Day March 17th - We will all be wearing green clothes.
Parent fika on the 30th of March between 16.00 - 18.00 in school. This time is an opportunity for parents of students in year 5, 6 and 7  to come in and fika, interact with school management, and see the school building. (We were unable to have visitors in the building for the last 2 years, and many parents have neither seen the inside of the building, nor met management.) 
Next National test is Swedish year 9, on the 22nd and 24th of March.
Best wishes you to all!
