 Parents-Teacher Meeting- LKG 
The LKG parent-teacher meeting emphasized emotions and number skills. The goal was to foster collaboration between parents and teachers in discussing children's development in these key areas. The session started with parents participating in discussions about understanding their child's emotions. Teachers shared insights on classroom activities, like storytelling and role-play, aimed at boosting emotional intelligence.
The second part of the PTM focused on the "Game of Numbers." Parents learned about innovative ways the school incorporates math concepts into daily activities. Teachers showcased engaging games and activities to make learning numbers enjoyable for LKG students, aiming to cultivate a positive attitude toward math. 
Parents received individual progress reports highlighting academic and emotional development. Teachers provided specific feedback on each child's strengths and areas for improvement, promoting a holistic understanding of the child's well-being. The PTM emphasized collaborative efforts between parents and teachers, discussing strategies for reinforcing learning at home, supporting emotional development, and addressing any concerns.
The PTM ended on an optimistic note regarding children's growth in emotions and numerical understanding. Parents gained a better understanding of their child's expressions in the classroom and valuable insights for fostering a positive learning environment at home. The PTM strengthened the bond between parents and teachers, showcasing the school's commitment to holistic child development. The themes of emotions and the game of numbers effectively addressed both cognitive and emotional aspects of early education.

 Parent-Teacher Meeting - UKG 
On 30th November, the UKG PTM event unfolded at The Fabindia School's Pre-Primary section, showcasing the remarkable involvement of parents. This marked the initiation of a fresh perspective on PTM at our school. The parents expressed immense satisfaction, witnessing their children confidently read and construct English sentences on the board during the Parent-Teacher Meeting (PTM). As parents delightedly observed their children independently working on worksheets, joy knew no bounds. This PTM marked the third occasion where parents had the privilege of witnessing their children's performances. Post-PTM, parents conveyed that their children's confidence levels had significantly surged. Grateful for this enriching experience, we extend our heartfelt thanks to The Fabindia School.

What is the reason for choosing this theme "Emotions"
She told us students should know how to express their feelings. When we fail to express our emotions that often makes us feel anxious, melancholic, or depressed. We are taught about languages, science, and history but still, emotions are a less discussed subject. This has led many individuals to wrestle with emotional issues, anger being the most common of them.
Archana Purohit / Educator

What is the reason behind conducting these activities? 
Children understand more quickly if we make them learn through visual activities. When they see, they understand quickly. For example, We created a wheel containing the names of the days in a week. Before this students had a hard time memorizing them. But now, students can easily tell us which day of the week.

 The dynamic Will power 
The mind is the creator of everything. You should therefore guide it to create only good. If you cling to a certain thought with dynamic willpower, it finally assumes a tangible outward form. When you can employ your will always for constructive purposes, you become the controller of your destiny. Carrying a thought with dynamic willpower means holding it until that thought pattern develops dynamic force. When a thought is made dynamic by will force, it can manifest according to the mental blueprint you have created. Proper visualization by the exercise of concentration and willpower enables us to materialize thoughts, not only as dreams or visions in the mental realm but also as experiences in the material realm.

 Board Exams 
Whoa, the 10th board exams feel like the Olympics of school tests! They're this big, official deal that decides a chunk of our academic future. It's like the World Cup of exams – loads of pressure and stress! Normal exams throughout the year? Meh, they're like practice rounds for the big game. They matter, but not as much as those board exams everyone talks about non-stop!  Everyone has started to prep for the big game. Dude, prepping for board exams is like diving into a marathon of studying! It's intense—books piled up, notes everywhere, and endless revision. Can't forget the crazy pressure from parents and teachers, too! It's all about memorizing, understanding concepts, and doing a gazillion past papers. Stressful, yeah, but got to hustle hard 'cause these exams can seriously shape our future, you know?

 Students Today: Busy and Adaptable 
Life for students is hectic! They've got school, friends, and tons of digital stuff to handle. Information is everywhere, which can be a bit much. Managing schoolwork while staying mentally healthy is a big deal. Technology helps with learning but can also be a bit distracting. Doing well matters, but feeling good does too. Learning with others and being able to adapt are super important skills. Even with all the craziness, today's students are tough and smart, making their way to a cool future."Are you a student? Because like them, you're weaving determination and ambition into a beautiful canvas called life."

 हँसी एक वरदान 
कुछ वरदान केवल मानव को ही मिले हैं। हँसी भी ऐसा ही एक वरदान है मनुष्य खुश होता है तो हँसता है। परंतु पशु कभी नहीं हँसता। वह हँस भी नहीं सकता। कुछ लोग स्वभाव से बहुत कठोर होते हैं। उन्हें हँसना बहुत कम आता है। हँसी तनाव को कम करती है। हँसने से हृदय खिल उठता है। हँसने वाले का चेहरा सुंदर हो जाता है। हँसते हुए को देखकर लोग भी हँसने लगते हैं । हँसी प्रसाद की तरह अनेक गुना होकर बढ़ती है। इसलिए मनुष्य को हँसने का कोई भी मौका छोड़ना नहीं चाहिए। यह है जिंदादिली की निशानी है। किसी बात पर हँसना तो ठीक है किंतु किसी की कमजोरी व बुराई पर हंँसना ठीक नहीं है, किसी मनुष्य की हँसी नहीं उड़ानी चाहिए। इसका प्रभाव उल्टा हो जाता है। जीवन में हमेशा हंँसमुख रहना चाहिए।
