From the Principal's Desk

Dear Parents,

After 17 days of school students and teachers are finally settling into a normal routine. Aside from the normal start of the year activities, grade level groups of students and teachers have participated in the grade 6, 7, and 8 beach days, the grade 11 IBDP Induction Retreat, and an Open House for parents. These events are excellent for students and teachers to get to know each other and for new students to develop friendships. They set the tone for the rest of the year.

Last Call for Feedback on Open House

Speaking of Open House. We have only had 10 responses to the parent survey and we desperately need your feedback. In the spirit of continuous improvement we ask that you spend a couple of minutes providing feedback on the event. We will use this for next year's planning. Please do so here.

Celebrating Vish Bhoja, MYP Coordinator

Vish Bhoja, our MYP Coordinator has been selected by the IBO to be a MYP workshop presenter and visiting team members. Congratulations to Mr. Bhoja for being chosen after a highly selective process. The skills and knowledge that he will gain will be valuable for IST's teachers and students.

Parent Learning Experiences

We are in the process of building out our offerings for parents that will run throughout the year. We realize that IST's learning community includes teachers, students, administrators and parents so we are developing a wide array of opportunities. Some will be like the Introduction to ManageBac and the MYP workshops. While others will focus on learning that helps us as parents. We solicit ideas for topics from the SPN and are open to suggestions from the school community.

Upcoming Events

September 13 - Director's Coffee

September 20 - Secondary Principal's Coffee

Have an amazing week!
