Kozak Korner #04. August 26, 2022



Director's Message

Dear KIS Community,

It was wonderful to see so many parents and students at our Open House and even better to see students engaged with their teachers today.

I know that everyone was tired after these first two days, but next week things will smooth out and everyone will find their rhythm. Hang in there and find your groove!

Thank you for all your support and the positive energy you brought to these first days.

Looking forward to a great year!

First Friday in Secondary

Friday was our first day of the 2022-2023 school year and it was a great pleasure to see our staff and students embrace the day. Morning mindset set the tone for a day of fun, community and exploration of our theme of balance. We had a morning of team building through competitive games and then an afternoon of workshops.

2022 Classes

Classes start on Monday. Students will have an invitation to Microsoft Teams from their teachers and there will be information there about class and/or an informational email. Students should check their emails every day. School starts at 9:00 AM Kyiv time. Every student has been invited to the Morning Mindset Team, and they will find their grade level team there.

This week students will meet with their independent studies teachers to talk about ways to explore wellness, Art, Music and/or Photography. We are looking forward to seeing the creativity and growth that this inspires.

Ms. Rech, Ms. Marianna and I are always available to help!
