It has been an amazing start to the school year. We had very strong attendance for our new family orientation event on Friday August 23 and our staggered start to the school year went very smoothly. The beginning of the year is always such a joy. The teachers and school staff miss your children over the summer and it is always such a pleasure to see them once school begins again.
Thank you for joining us for our annual Curriculum Night and ASA Sign-Up. It was great to see so many parents and students in attendance. Please remember the sign up date for Term 1 ASAs is September 5, 2019. Registration forms should be given directly to the homeroom teacher.
There are a couple of changes in place for the 2019-2020 school year and we want to share them with you:
All students from Grade 1-Grade 6 are expected to wear the formal uniform with the exception of the days that they have gym class. CIS students have gym class three times a week and students should only wear their PE uniforms on those days. Our older students must wear their formal uniform each day and they will change into their PE uniforms for their gym class. It is important that our G7-G12 students remember to pack their gym clothes in their backpack when they have PE.
The new formal uniform for G7-G12 are expected to arrive by September 9 and will be distributed to the students.
All parents are expected to sign the WeChat Parent Expectation form. Please make sure you submit your form to the homeroom teacher by September 4, 2019.
