I wanted to let you know about some happenings here at SIS in the next few days / weeks:
This Thursday, January 25th, is going to be jam packed! Students should come to school wearing their red SIS shirts for our January spirit day which is “SIS SPIRIT DAY!” There will be face painting during recess times and posters all over the school. In addition to spirit day, Thursday is also our second “Learning Comes Alive” day. You are invited to attend 5A’s math lesson on that day from 11:20 – 12:15. I would love to see you there for this hands-on mathematics session, learning with the students.
This Friday, January 26th, will be an early dismissal day; students will leave school starting at 11:30am. Please make sure your child knows exactly how they will be getting home or where they should be going after class. All school transportation will still function… but just earlier that day.
Thursday, February 1st, will be no school for students. On that day, we will conduct parent / student / teacher conferences. A sign-up genius link will be emailed to all parents on this Thursday afternoon. Please look out for that if you wish to sign up for a time slot.
Saturday, February 3rd, will be “Discover China Day” here at Jingshan from 12:00 – 3:00pm. I’ll be there too soaking up all the amazing cultural knowledge I can; hope to see you and 5A students there. If it rains that day, the event will be rescheduled for February 10th (somebody’s birthday!!!)
Tuesday, February 6th, there will be a magician visiting school. Grade 5 students will participate in this activity 10:00 – 10:45am.
Friday, February 9th, will be school photograph make up day at the Level 5. This option is available for new students, students who were absent, or any that are dissatisfied with their previous photographs.
Wednesday, February 14th, will be the last day of school for students before the Chinese New Year holiday. Students will be off from February 15th – 25th. I will see all students back at school to start the Year of the Dog on Monday, February 26th.

Fifth grade overnight field trip in Hong Kong is approaching. We will have a meeting for parents to attend with more information after everything has been finalized.
