Dear Families,

Wishing everyone a very joyous International Women’s Day holiday! I hope you have a relaxing and enjoyable long weekend.

Our “Be Exceptional, Excel in English” campaign is off to a wonderful start. Students are doing a great job following our English policy on campus! We are proud of our welcoming and inclusive community of learners.

We have had several inquiries about re-enrollment for the 2024-25 school year. This is a very easy process which will open in the first week of April. It is a simple click on a button in Open Apply! We will notify you by informer and you will receive an email from Open Apply.

I hope to see many of you at Bingo Night on March 15th. Doors open at 5 PM and games start at 5:30!

Best regards,
Rachel Geary

Dear Families,

We are making plans for the 2024-25 school year; we expect our school to continue to grow both in size and diversity. We will honor our commitment to offer significantly reduced fees from our pre-war tuition to help provide education to as many families as possible. However, our 2024-25 fees have increased slightly. If the fee increase is a challenge to your family’s finances, please apply for a scholarship. We are committed to helping our community. Please see the new school fees and school calendar for the 2024-25 school year. The re-enrolment process will begin in March; it is a very easy process through Open Apply – you will receive an email.

If you are unable to come to school at 4 PM to supervise your child, we can provide a supervised movie activity for students until 5:30 PM. If you would like your child to join this supervised activity, please use this form to let us know.



Шановні родини!

Довгоочікуваний вечір гри в бінго, організований батьківською радою KIS, швидко наближається! Він розпочнеться 15 березня о 17:30! Двері відчиняться о 17:00 - сім'ї матимуть змогу придбати картки бінго та насолодитися легкими закусками в кафетерії.

Якщо ваша дитина користується шкільним автобусом і залишиться в школі, а ви не матимете змоги прийти до школи о 16:00, щоб наглянути за нею, учні матимуть змогу переглянути фільм під наглядом до 17:30. Якщо ви хотіли б, щоб ваша дитина залишилася для перегляду фільму, будь ласка заповніть форму за посиланням, щоб повідомити про це.

| "Empower" Lesson Plans

The Empower curriculum integrates the Success Orientations, Social Emotional Learning concepts, and Child Protection principles into individual lessons throughout the year. These lessons will be delivered during a dedicated weekly EMPOWER class time. This approach aims to equip students with a comprehensive set of skills applicable throughout their lives. Specific lessons tailored to each grade level ensure developmental appropriateness. While some concepts may be revisited annually, the lessons will vary based on the students' age. For more information, please see the QSI Empower statement.

Teachers will keep parents informed about the upcoming lessons for their child, and for certain grades, the lesson plans will be accessible in this newsletter. Click on the post below to view the message from the teacher.
