Choir Meeting – Friday Lunch

Dear Choir Members,

We will be having a 10 minute, delicious choir meeting in which we will reflect upon last year’s performances and discuss this year’s upcoming repertoire. Please come promptly at the start of lunch… or suffer the crumb-sequences.

Student Council elections

Dear advisors and students,

We hope that you had an amazing summer.

The Student Council have already started to think of all the fun activities we will organize for you!

It is important for us to hear your voice!

Next week each advisory should elect one advisory liaison.
Starting September, the advisory liaison will be receiving a few survey questions weekly to ask their advisory and will report the result back to us. 

Please find time each week for a 3 minute-Student Council announcement or survey.

If you want to be a Student Council member, tell your friends in your Grade. The Student Council Member Elections will take place in 2 weeks.

Willy Wang and Sarah Nappi
Presidents of the Student Council

Learning Artifacts

Hi All,

We are removing some learning artifacts from D226. If these are yours, or if you are thinking of starting a learning materials museum, please drop by and remove from D226 by Monday at 8am. Thanks!

Reminder: hot weather lunch break G1-5

This means:

  1. After eating lunch, ALL G1-5 students go outside (13:10 Thursday) for 20 minutes of play.
  2. After 20 minutes (13:30) the duty teachers will send all the students into their classrooms for an indoor break.
  3. Duty teachers go inside to their designated indoor recess spots.
  4. The library will be closed at lunch.
  5. The Green Gym is open to G3-5 only.

Homeroom teachers, please support the students by explaining the expectations to your students.

All teachers: use reinforcing and reminding language to redirect students.

And, of course, if it is raining, it will be an indoor break for G1-5.

Middle and Upper School Welcome (Back) and Assembly

Hello Middle and Upper School Superstars!

Welcome to our 41 amazing new-to-NIS students in Grades 6-11 and welcome back to our returning MS/US rockstars.

A heads-up that we will have our Welcome Assembly tomorrow (Friday) at 2:30pm in the PAC. We will plan to start promptly, so please urge your Day 2, Block 5 teacher to help you be on-time to avoid the dreaded walk of shame.

See you there!
