Kozak Korner #02. August 25th, 2023

| Director's Message

So wonderful to see all our Kozaks back at school!


Supervision begins at 8:15! Students should remain in the playground – teachers will meet them there and they will go to the classroom together. If children arrive earlier than 8:15 they should remain with their parents. Throughout the school year, communication will be through Seesaw: Seesaw for Families | Seesaw Teachers will send information, including the QR code to families so they can join.

Middle School

Students will need a laptop every day. If students arrive before 8:15, they need to wait in the lobby or at the front of the school.

These extracurricular activities start immediately after school and finish at 5:15. Students must leave campus immediately.

Monday, Wednesday, Friday we offer our students a chance to use the facilities and enjoy time with friends. These are NOT organized activities. Students should ONLY plan to participate if they are interested in doing an activity independently.

Unfortunately, at this time, we are not able to offer a late bus at 5:15. Students will need to have their own transportation.

Languages other than English (LOE) 
KIS is proud to have a vibrant and highly experienced LOE department.  We offer French, German, Ukrainian and Russian.  Many of our students will be enrolled in LOE classes this year and students from 8-year-old to Secondary IV have a choice as to the language they will learn.  Please see this form to choose a language:

5-year-old students will enjoy a fun course of World Languages and 6–7-year-old students will study Ukrainian. 

Students without English proficiency will have Intensive English instead of LOE.
