Head of School Updates, March 8 2019

Dear Parents, Students, Faculty, and Friends,

Today, we welcomed 600 IB educators to our campus to take part in 28 different workshops to improve our teaching and learning. It’s one way that we strive to get better each day in the hopes of giving students a more authentic learning experience.

I want to draw your attention to three upcoming parent events.

  1. This Wednesday from 3:00-4:00, Math Specialist Erma Anderson will run a parent workshop on the topic of understanding Conceptual vs. Procedural Math. It’s an informative session, and parents of all ages are invited.
  2. On March 12, the SCIS PAFA will be holding an important meeting to begin the future-planning process for the 2019-20 school year. Parents are encouraged to attend the meeting, share input, and help keep the SCIS Community strong and vibrant.
  3. Our SCIS International Festival is April 27!  See the poster below for more information and save the date.

Lastly, I want to share an admissions reminder for the 2019-20 school year. Returning families have until March 15 to secure a spot for the next school year. All parents have received emails from our admissions staff sharing information about how this can be done. Because our school continues to grow, the process will be very important because we expect to have wait lists at many grade levels. If you have not reserved your child’s space for next school year and want to learn more, please contact admissions@scis-china.org for more information.

Hoping you and. your family are finding time to get out in the sunshine in recent days. It’s a welcome change from the rainy weather.

Have a safe and restful weekend.
