Head of School Updates, March 22 2019

Dear Parents, Students, Faculty, and Friends,

Once again, it is a busy week at the SCIS Campus. This week, special thanks go out to the parents who joined us for a variety of events – from IB Visual Arts & Music Exhibitions to today’s  MYP Science Expos. Of course, the big event this week was our Student-Led Conferences. The goal of these conferences is to help students take agency for their learning, and we are appreciative of the strong parent turnout on Thursday to give students such an authentic audience to share their learning. Many of our photos below highlight the fantastic interactions that were happening on Thursday.

We continue to plan for next year. I trust that all parents have received a few communications for our Admissions Department already. Thus far, we have received responses from 85% of families to share your plans for next year. Our enrollment continues to grow, and we are already wait-listing new families while we save space for our returning families. Next week represents a big date in the admissions process.  On Friday, March 29, all returning families who have not paid a deposit (or been in contact with our admissions department directly) will be moved to our Wait List pool in order to free up the space for newly arriving families. Our goal is communicate this process clearly to everyone so there are no surprises. If you have questions, please reach out to our admissions department (admissions@scis-china.org ) to ensure we keep a space open for you and your children.

Hoping you are all able to enjoy the spring weather.

Derek Luebbe
