Head of School Updates, September 12, 2019

Dear Parents, Students, Faculty, and Friends,

It was a short week, and I trust that everyone is enjoying the long weekend.

I do want to congratulate our 9th graders who organized a quick morning bagel sale and gave everyone a little morning boost on Wednesday. The proceeds from the sale will be used to support the 9th Grade China Go Trip to Inner Mongolia where our students’ funding and efforts will help support additional trees to support the desertification.

On Thursday, our entire SCIS Pudong and Hongqiao faculty gathered for full day of Professional Development learning. One of our main topics focused on further defining our learning goals in terms of the evidence we have, and additional evidence we can gather to support our students. It was a great day of productive discussions to help further clarify what we can do to better support students.

As a last reminder, Sunday is the deadline for September Parent Satisfaction Survey. If you have not completed the survey, please take two minutes to share your opinion. It helps us improve as a school, and allows us to follow up with students and parents to gather more information about what is working well, and where we can improve.

Wishing you all a restful weekend.

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival.

Derek Luebbe
