Congratulations to our student performers! Thanks to each of your who came out to support our students at Middle School's Got Talent last week. We had a tremendous turnout of parent and student visitors on both evenings. Additionally, we were pleased once again to present a matinee performance to our non-participating Middle School Students along with the entire 4th grade. I'm so impressed with the hard work and creativity of each student who joined our talent show. Each performance was selected/ created/ written by Middle School Students. With the steady support of Mr. Lebon, our students delivered outstanding shows to large audiences in the Middle School Hall which was transformed into a cabaret theater for the event. As always, all proceeds from our performances will go to fund the education of three children at the Sok Sobay Children's Home in Cambodia.
It was wonderful to see so many of you this afternoon at the Fun Fair. Hundreds of parents, teachers, students and visitors came to the Paterson Campus today. This year featured many student performances, food, crafts, games, a bouncy house and a dunk tank (I took a turn getting wet this year!). A huge thank you goes out to Nadine Trentini and the entire PTA for putting together such a wonderfully organized community event. The Fun Fair is just one of the many ways in which we strengthen our bonds as an ISS family
Over the past few weeks the Middle School has sent out attendance "reminders" to some of our families. As I've written previously in this blog, it is very important for students to maximize their attendance at school in order to meet our grade level expectations and comply with Singapore Law. As we move closer to our Spring Break holiday, please keep in mind that any student absence related to vacation will be considered "unexcused."
Other upcoming events:
- Sports Day- March 18th. Sports Day is a HALF DAY of school for our students. Please refer to Ms. Allan's recent ManageBac message for more details about Sports Day.
- March 19- April 4 -- Spring Break Holiday... Please note that the first day of school after the holiday is Tuesday, April 5th.
- April 19- Middle School Student Led Conferences- There are no regularly scheduled classes for students on April 19th. Students should come to school with their parents/ guardians only for their scheduled conference.
