Dear ISG Dammam School Families,


Welcome to Quarter 4! We are on the last leg of the 2013-14 journey. Preparations are in place to wind up the year on a successful note with so many end of year happenings. MAP Testing is about to start. This is the new testing program that replaces the OLSAT tests in grades 2-9. MAP is a growth assessment that we will be able to use at least twice a year to track growth with each individual student and also target areas of strength and deficit. We have a number of SAIKAC events yet to complete, PROM social at DHS, talents shows, KG graduation and of course the Senior high graduation.
Dr. Richards is busy getting ready to rollout the 3 year 21st century plan for all of our schools. Developed in coordination with the administrative team, this plan focuses on literacy curriculum, technology, and becoming a "Digital Citizen". These are exciting times for our schools as we begin this transition. Making the necessary changes in practice has already begun and our team is looking forward to the challenges ahead.
I hope that you were able to take the surveys that have been sent out lately to offer your constructive criticism of our school system. This information is valuable in seeing the school through your eyes and looking for favorable solutions.

John Rutten
ISG Dammam Principal
