SIS 25th anniversary – October 19th

Dear Families –

Come Celebrate with us on October 19th:

SIS Sports Field

4:45 – Picnic

6:30 – SIS Director Addresses Community

6:45 – Outdoor Movie

By now you will have received the invitation to our all school picnic that was sent home last week on Friday.  We look forward to gathering our entire community together on Saturday August 24th to celebrate the opening of school and the start of our year.

This will be a fun event in many ways:

Eat: This traditional picnic begins at 5:30 at the sports field in Jingshan Villas.  We encourage you to bring your blankets, lawn chairs, and favorite foods to eat (no BBQ’s or open flames allowed, though).  There will also be food vendors on hand from some favorite restaurants including: The Village, Spice Circle, The Boathouse, Atmosphere, and Eurest if you would prefer to purchase food.  The PSA will be selling popcorn, and some delicious Chinese sweets will be available.  Soda and water will also be for sale.

Shop: Our PSA will also have SIS merchandise for sale, so this is a great time to stock up.  New additions this year include a magnet, a commemorative 25th anniversary t-shirt, and picnic blankets (perfect for this event).

Watch: At about 7:00, we will show a movie.  Although originally scheduled to be shown on the sports field, we have decided to move it into the SPAH.  The movie will be The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking.  This movie came out in 1988, the year SIS began, so it is a fitting choice.

We look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday!

In case of inclement weather, we will postpone this event to a later date.  We will inform the SIS community via email and text message early afternoon on Saturday if this happens.
