Dear Parents, Students, Faculty, and Friends,

Parents prepare for Bingo Night

If you were lucky enough to visit the school this week, you no doubt saw a dedicated group of parents in the lobby preparing for Saturday’s Bingo Night. You will see a few more photos later in the blog to showcase the great work that is being done.

The finished product! Two of our beautiful bingo baskets are just waiting for a lucky winner!

As of 2:00 pm Friday, the Black Box has been transformed into the SCIS Bingo Hall, and we’re expecting over 300 parents, students, and faculty to join the fun. It’ll be great night of fun, food, drinks, and prizes.




Boys and Girls Volleyball bring home some trophies!






The week was a little calmer than last week’s ACAMIS Volleyball Tournament Congratulations go out to everyone in the

SCIS community for making the weekend such a great experience for our students. The Dragon Spirit was alive and well. Our SCIS boys captured 3rd Place in the tournament, and our girls team left the weekend undefeated as ACAMIS champions! 

Another big shout out goes to our returning MUN (Model United Nations) students who took part in the Model United Nations Conference in Hangzhou. While the MUN Conference doesn’t give our trophies or award winners, our students to developed diplomatic problem-solving skills while tackling global issues – a skill the world badly needs!

Next week, our faculty is gearing up with for three special days of fantastic professional development. We will be visited by renowned expert, Tania Lattanzio, who has helped support schools around the world in their development of teaching IB units with a Conceptual Understanding. Tania will be working in small-groups with faculty throughtout Wednesday and Thursday, and we will take advantage of our Professional Development Day on Friday to have Tania work with our entire staff. REMINDER: Students do not have school on November 23.

Lastly, as you can see from the fliers below, there are many community-building activities coming up in the near future. We have two different Winter Festivals! Our SCIS Pudong Festival is on Sunday Dec. 2. The SCIS system (representing all three campuses, Pudong, Hongqiao, and Hongqiao ECE Campus) is planning a Winter Festival for all families within the SCIS system on November 24. The System Festival is held at our Hongqiao Campus. These are special events and we will provide parent bussing to both of them, to help encourage your attendance! Stay tuned for bussing sign-up information.

I’m sure I will see many of you this Saturday. I must admit, I am feeling lucky and plan to win a few of the bingo baskets!

Wishing each of you a relaxing weekend.
Warm regards,

Derek Luebbe
