Dear KIS Families,
We are rapidly approaching the end of the school year. This past month has gone by quickly. These next few weeks, classes will be finalizing their last units and begin to wrap up the year.
Friday, June 3rd, we will have our Student-Led Conferences. This is a unique conference opportunity for parents to listen to their child(ren) reflect on the school year and present the different areas of growth and learning. We hope that everyone will be able to attend and participate in these conferences.
We have a couple more Coffee Chats scheduled. This week, there will be a discussion on transitioning students to next year classes and new schools. This will be a valuable conversation, as we will have many who have been forced to unexpectedly transition this year. We will also have a coffee chat to talk more about the next school year.
We continue to watch Ukraine with hope that we will be able to return as soon as possible. We are earnestly looking into the conditions and guidelines for our return.

Celebrating the 10-Year-Old--Zooming into Middle School!
On Friday, May 27, our 10-year-olds "Zoomed into Middle School" Mrs. Olhinger put together a fantastic video (link), and we shared a little bit of time remembering the year and presenting awards!
Congratulations to our President's Education Award recipients: Mykyta Yegorov and Ayoon Jung.
Kyiv International School is very proud of the 10-year-old class and wishes them everything good for the coming years!
Have a Safe Summer!
WHAT A YEAR THIS HAS BEEN!!!!!
Prior to spring break, Secondary Student Council hosted experimental "Reconnection Sessions that the student body loved! Students for each grade respectively joined their zoom rooms to talk and catchup, but stayed long after the event was formally over.
Additionally, we held a jeopardy-style event with trivia questions from various categories, and students engaged in some friendly competition and banter. It all came down to the last 100 points and Team Toasty (Alisa, Sasha, Wojciech, Illia) took the win.
The passion and engagement from the student body is what motivates us to take risks and we are truly honored to be able to serve this incredible community this year!
