Dear SCIS Families,
We would like to thank everyone for an amazing semester. The academic and social-emotional growth, the impressive artistic performances, athletic triumphs and day to day experiences truly make SCIS a community we are proud to be a part of. We encourage everyone to look back on the semester’s success and failures as we take this lessons into semester two. A special thank you to everyone that contributed to today’s end of semester festivities.
This morning’s International Breakfast was a great opportunity for students to share some of their culinary cultural traditions with their classmates. As always, we thank the parents who helped students prepare the dishes for this morning’s meal. The International Breakfast is always a highlight of the semester. While students enjoyed the food, they were treated to one of our newer traditions, cafeteria karaoke. Congratulations to all of the students and staff members who took the risk to pick up the microphone.
Semester Celebration Assembly
The official end to the fall semester was celebrated in the theater this morning with musical performances, recognitions of excellence, and a formal farewell to departing classmates. A special thank you to all of today’s performers and those that prepared the videos for today’s celebration. Finally, congratulations to the students who achieved honor roll and principal’s honor roll this semester. Your hard work and dedication to academic excellence is an example for all of us.
As a reminder, our first day back for semester 2 will be Monday, January 7th. We wish all of those traveling over the break a wonderful journey and a safe return to Shanghai.
Frank Volpe & Naomi Shanks
