AIS International Day

AIS International Festival

MARCH 20th

“The World is Our Village”

The AIS International Festival is almost upon us!  We would like to remind you that this year’s festival will promote unity and celebrate the diversity of our school’s cultures and our strong tie to internationalism. We urge parents who would like to share knowledge and culture of a region to volunteer to work with students and teachers to prepare booths for the festival.

 

Ways you can help:

  • Provide resources for a booth (pictures, textiles, posters, artifacts, etc.)
  • Provide food for a booth
  • Share a cultural performance, including a dance or a song about your region.

If you would like to represent a region during this event or would like to contribute in any way, please email Hiba Shehayeb using the address below. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,

Parent Tea March 17th

Hello Everyone!

I have been terribly negligent this year with only two Parent Teas so far. It is time we sat down and chatted.

You are invited to a Parent Tea on Monday, March 17 at 6:30 pm in the elementary multipurpose room. We will be taking this time to discuss our school goals that were recently reviewed in the MSA accreditation visit, our use of technology  and how to advocate for your child in the school when it is needed. If there is an issue that you think we could address in this forum, please contact me and let me know.

I look forward to seeing you on the 17th!

Parent Tea January 20

Elementary School parents are invited to a Parent Tea January 20 at 6-7 pm. Please come and discuss issues related to your children and be informed of programming at the school. At this meeting we will be discussing a student problem solving model (Kelso), a quick introduction to the PYP and the class placement process for 2014. I look forward to meeting with you and receiving your input.

AIS International Festival

March 20, 2014

“The World is Our Village”

International Day has a “new look” and will focus on regions as opposed to individual countries. In support of this change to a regional focus we will not be showcasing flags or maps of any country.  

We urge parents who would like to share knowledge of their culture to volunteer to work with students and teachers to prepare regional booths for the festival.

Ways you can help:

  • Provide resources for a booth (pictures, textiles, posters, artifacts, etc.)
  • Provide food for a booth
  • Supervise a booth during the festival
  • Share a cultural performance, including a dance or a song about your region.

If you would like to participate, please email Hiba Shehayeb using the address below. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,

Calendar Change

To:  The AIS Community

Re: November 28th and January 30th:  Adjustments in the school calendar to compensate 
for  missed instructional time.

-) Sports day, scheduled for Thursday, November 28th, 2013 is postponed to make up for lost 
instructional time. Thursday next will now be a full instructional day for students. It is our hope 
and intention to have a sports day later in the year barring additional unanticipated school closures.

-) On January 30th, 2014  the early dismissal indicated on the calendar will not take place. That 
day will also be a full instructional day for students.

Thank you for your help in assuring full attendance on those days. Time on task is vitally important 
to each of our students.

Sincerely,

Russ McLean,
Superintendent
